Congrats! I received mine on July 26th and had everything singed within 10 minutes. P427 here with November delivery.

Michael;

It must be nice. I get to testdrive a Model S on August 19 in Dallas. I can hardly wait. Your post of the copy of the email lacks returns at the end of the line causing it to go on in a single line for each sentence. Could you edit your post and add returns every 10 or 12 words so the rest of us can read it. Parts of the copy are blocked out by the Active Topics section on the right side of the screen.

When you make your configuration payment and sign the contract to build let us know your projected delivery date.

Mine got called last week P935!

Brian H | 05. August 2012

Chris;
Ya, that # delivered in late Oct. / early Nov. would be consistent with the 5K target. Is that the period you were given?

Volker.Berlin | 06. August 2012
TheAustin | 07. August 2012

I'm P2009, and I just got the email notification to configure my Model S. For those of you keeping track of things like that.

Brian H | 07. August 2012

So, about 3500 deliveries by (mid?)-November.

Kit-60kWh now 85D | 07. August 2012

I'm P1615 and I got my email about noon PDT today. Interesting! Exciting!

Lcaudle | 10. August 2012

Could somebody explain the letter (I.e., "P") everyone is referring to in front of their reservation number? Mine is just a number with no letter.

Thanks

General production as opposed to a signature order...

Michael23 | 10. August 2012

That's a lot in November. I was told Nov and I'm 427

Sudre_ | 10. August 2012

They have to be on at least car number 3000 by the end on November or they will never make the 5000 target.

easydjr | 10. August 2012

What is the sender's email address that the notice comes from? I want to make sure it doesn't go into my spam folder. I'm P4051.

brianman | 10. August 2012

@easydjr
In June, it was "Tesla Product Specialist Team" with address "BuildMyModelS@e.teslamotors.com".

easydjr | 10. August 2012

Thx

Robert22 | 10. August 2012

Michael23-

Looks like our babies will probably be born on the same day ;)

I was told November too.

They have to be on at least car number 3000 by the end on November or they will never make the 5000 target.

Note that all the demos, Founder, SSL, and Sigs come before that. Say 1,300. So the P# would have to be >1700 or so. There might be a few headed for Urp by then which have their own sequence #s.

As Elon said, all we have to to is track VINs or serial #s for recent deliveries to have a good idea of total production/delivery. But he's not making it "open"; the sleuthing is up to us/journalists/other nosy persons.
:D

Brian H | 11. August 2012

Also, Sudre_, note the repeated emphasis that 5,000 in 2012 is a "soft" target. Elon is personally determined to make everyone work through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve if necessary to achieve it, but his "commitments" are 1: delivery begins by Summer 2012; 2: gross margins will be 'at least' 25% (i.e., after direct Cost of Production); 3. 'at least' 20,000 will be produced in 2013 (assuming demand doesn't fall off a cliff). (He is actually talking about being production-constrained to perhaps 30,000 in 2013.)

At the very least, production rate by Dec. 31 will be at or above the 20,000/annum pace.

rbeninati1 | 12. August 2012

I'm S320 and was told to expect a call in Sept for an Oct delivery. I can't wait!!

Brian H | 12. August 2012

rb;
Assuming that's not SSL320, it implies over 500 reservation #s called by then.

Mel. | 12. August 2012

Rb , could that be a P320. With a late october delivery?

Larry Chanin | 12. August 2012

@Mel

Rb , could that be a P320. With a late october delivery?

No, the highest reported Signature S-1299 was quoted a November estimated delivery. There are no General Production estimated deliveries in October.

EdG | 12. August 2012

I think the key word is "told". I'm S303 (not SSL) and I received no such message. Not even in my Spam folder. I'm guessing rbeninati1 asked about it and got a spoken estimated reply. ??

Larry Chanin | 12. August 2012

Agreed, that it was likely a spoken communication, but nevertheless a very credible estimate. I'm S-1232 and I fully expect to get the 30 day call in September as well based on my MVPA's October estimated delivery date. They didn't say so, but I believe my high Signature number suggests a late October delivery and a late September call.

BYT | 12. August 2012

I am hoping for a late September call and October delivery as I will be on a boat for 16 days starting early November otherwise for S1186.

Brian H | 12. August 2012

BYT;
I'm sure you can find a friend to accept delivery for you! ;)

BYT | 12. August 2012

A friend I can trust to take delivery and NOT drive my baby before I do? Who has a friend they can trust that much? :)

rbeninati1 | 12. August 2012

On My Garage it shows I have RN061821 Model S #320. I called last week and asked when I could expect a call and delivery. The rep told me to expect the e-mail sometime in Sept with a delivery date sometime in October.

Brian H | 12. August 2012

Oh, I was thinking you'd let him break it in a bit before you got back, then teach you how to make best use of it.

|;-}

Brian H | 12. August 2012

You'd probably end up getting him to order one of his own, too. Think of the children! Etc.

BYT | 12. August 2012

LOL, but I REALLY want to be the first to drive it. I have never spent anywhere near this much for anything in my life (other then the roof over my families head). In fact, this car is only half of what i paid for my first home in the late 90's. I'm gonna be first, everyone else is secondary... ;)

David70 | 12. August 2012

BYT,

It's almost twice what I paid for my current house that I bought in the early '70s. Of course, that's not counting all the interest paid on it.

Liz G | 14. August 2012

Didn't get the email yet BUT my garage now has the Finalize option.

DennisM | 14. August 2012

P1269 - got my notice early last week. All epaperwork done in a day and "vanity plate" already picked out with CA DMV! PLGNFLY (I think the Roadster gang got all the really good ones.)

Electric Machete | 14. August 2012

Congrats ebm. That makes about 2,000 reservations moved to "building" in the last two weeks. Keep us posted about expected delivery times as well.

ronlitvak | 14. August 2012

P2770 - Got my email as well! They are starting to move through the list a full production speed now. About 600 or more numbers got their "time to build" emails this week, it would appear.

jscottsanders | 14. August 2012

#P3122: email received today.

prash.saka | 14. August 2012

@jscottsanders , P3122? Wow, it is very impressive that you received the email so soon (I know it is never too soon for you). Awesome!

majgill | 14. August 2012
