Elon Musk has likened future versions of Tesla's Model 3 production line to an 'alien dreadnaught' - and last week the first pictures of the factory emerged.
A Reddit user claiming to work for robot making company Kuka posted the images of what he says are 467 robots being delivered to the car-making firm's California HQ.
The photos show a large shipment of unmounted robots that will form part of the ambitious production line.
SoutheastTraders forum user Mac11FA, via the Tesla subreddit, said he is a Field Service Engineer for Kuka Robotics.
The robots captured in the photos appear to be largely manufactured by Augsburg, Germany-based Kuka robotics, according to Teslarati.
The robots, each costing anywhere between $50k to as much as $500k can manage multiple tasks by switching adapters and moving across multiple axes.
The first 30 models were handed over to customers during a glitzy ceremony at the company's factory in California last Friday.
