    Isn't it so they can lock up more buyers into contracts? You do lose 10k if you back out after signing the doc.

    I believe it has always been 90 days from placing your order to receive your S. They are giving you 30 days to make your choices after you receive your 'Time to Build' email, so that puts you at 120 days, if there are no delays..

    I'm P#3820, got my email today as well. It looks like they are running at about 1,000 reservations per week for the last three weeks. This rate is way ahead of their anticipated production run for 2013 of 20k/yr.

    The silence from Tesla has been a bit deafening. I'm guessing that the feedback from real world driving of the Founders Series and the first few Sigs has Tesla re-evaluating a few things and tweaking their line. Whatever the case, I would love to hear an update from Tesla regarding the apparent slow down of production.

    I'm all for slowing it down to improve the final product and I really don't mind waiting a few extra months for a vehicle that won't need a recall. I would just like to know what the issues are.

    I was wondering if we would get another flurry of these on Tuesday. Seems to be regular now.

    Also might be very possible that they are calling a large number of res holders to get the configs in. Two folks with adjacent res numbers might get very different delivery dates depending on exterior color, battery size, interior color, or perhaps even physical location. I suspect they are batching for efficiency and ease of build as Jerry touched on.

    Has anyone received confirmation that their paperwork was received? I haven't heard anything since signing and would feel more comfortable if I knew that the process was moving forward. I just sent them an email but wondered if anyone here had any info.

    Call you Tesla rep first. I also did not get confirmation after signing right away. But he tracked it down and they did have it and I was sent confirmation shortly after I spoke with him.

    paper work partialy on line and on phone. I then received
    the "Congratulations! Your Model S order is on its way to the Tesla Factory" that afternoon." I was told that delivery would
    be Dec or Jan. I was also imformed that they would notify
    me 30 days before delivery.
