Tesla Motors Inc. posted its best sales quarter ever ahead of efforts to raise additional cash that it will need to begin production of the Model 3 sedan.

Chief Executive Office Elon Musk wanted a strong third quarter to help build his case for why TSLA, +1.66% should raise more money for the Model 3’s production line and for the Gigafactory. Global deliveries of Tesla vehicles more than doubled from the same quarter a year earlier to 24,500, the company said in a statement on Sunday.
