Elon always promises to deliver way before he can, and when he finally produces, it's small volume and takes years to work out the bugs. His space X program is trying the old USSR strategy of combining several smaller rockets instead of engineering a large one, and the inability of the USSR'S economy and it's non meritocratic system of producing professionals meant that due to both engineering hurdles and cost, producing a Saturn rocket was non optional; The limitations of what the market can sustain in terms of shipping things out of atmosphere, means the cost constraints that prevent building a Saturn equivalent, have Musk trapped in the same multi rocket trap the Soviets had. Rockets are simultaneously stupidly simple in theory, and unbelievably complex in execution, which is why strapping several rockets together and getting them to work in tandem absolutely perfectly, is so difficult to actually pull off.
