    Your Model S order is on its way to the Tesla Factory" that afternoon."
    ...
    delivery would
    be Dec or Jan.

    On its way, by way of Australia? That's 4-5 months of manufacturing! \9-/

    Brad Holt- What's your res #?
    I was pleasantly surprised another round went out on today since the previous rounds were Tuesdays. Over a year ago I was told that Tesla was going to try to deliver all the <P5000 Model Ss in 2012.

    continued..
    P reservations up to about 5000 this year. It looks like they are pretty close to that time horizon to me.

    I signed my MVPA today and the document said that the estimated delivery date is between NOV, 2012 - DEC, 2012. I am P3495 and I wonder if it is because of my location (20 miles north west of Fremont factory) that my delivery date seems to be sooner than some reservation holders who have reported with lower reservation numbers.

    Are the reservation holders who've been recently finalizing their cars being given more feature choices / options than what is in the default "Design your Model S" online studio from TM?

    Nelson;
    RU Large, Medium, or Small? That influences delivery date, too.

    Nelson:
    I am in San Jose with P2420. My MVPA (finalized on August 14) has an estimated delivery date of Dec 2012-Jan 2013.

    I am getting the 85 kWh battery but not the performance model. I'm not sure if it means that they have become more accurate in their delivery estimates in the past 9 days or what...

    I'm hoping that your estimate is accurate, and my estimate is long :)

    P4235 Signed paperwork at 6 PM-- Performance/black leather. Estimated delivery Nov/Dec 2012 The most pleasant way I have ever agreed to part with so much money :o)
  • edited November -1
    These dates seem all over the place. I'm 427 performance in dec. I wonder if performance models are earlier.

    For all you Canadian reservations holders I can tell you I also got my Time to Build email today. I am Signature #7 (Roadster Owner). Seems they have sent out quite a few emails at the same time. I have seen S12, S72 and my S7 on the same day. What we dont know is when the actual deliveries will be. How many will they ship to Canada per week when they start? Certainly not 72 a day! I wish we had a little more concrete information :(

    I ordered the 85kWh Performance Model S in black with tan interior and the standard roof. Maybe this configuration has a shorter lead time. When I talked to the Tesla representative, he said it will most likely be delivered in Dec.
  • edited November -1
    For those that have not gotten the mail yet, the web site gives you the estimated delivery. I have not tried, but I think if you play with the configuration, you can get different dates out of it. I also get Nov/Dec. At first, this seems like a long time, but August is almost over, and that allows 30 days to complete the paperwork, and 60 to 90 days to delivery. By the time I get it, I will have been planning for almost two years. There is however a light and the end of the tunnel, and it appears to be Tesla headlights... ; )

    Elon sez the next 6 months (as of mid-July) are nerve-wracking critical. I don't believe that means TM must hit the 5K deliveries target, just demonstrate that it can do at least that many per quarter, without significant quality blow-backs.

    IAC, ain't we got fun this fall? (Sept. 21-Dec. 21)
  • edited November -1
    Y'know, I think I'm gonna ask Elon to deliver me a Birthday present this year (Dec24). I want TSLA stock to be at $40 per share or better }B)

    From a conversation this week with the Tesla reservation folks it sounds like the US Signature deliveries happen first then Canadian Signature. Most will be done by end of year. After backing out as S67 in Canada I'm back in the game with a big cheque mailed off earlier this week to get one of the last Signature editions in Canada (hopefully, waiting on reservation number).
  • edited November -1
    Well in that case Colin you might get mine. I was Cdn S64, but I am dealing with a huge amount of job insecurity right now and can't risk breaking my finances with a Sig between now and Christmas. I just got off the phone where I made the request to switch queues. I wish they had asked me to configure a couple months ago or a couple months from now :). Nevertheless I am sure I will be happy with a regular production car next year.

    I'm locked in, Canadian Signature #1 (regular) as of yesterday.

    George B's last statement that indirectly referred to Canadian Sig production was in one of his blogs: "The first 1200 cars delivered will be North American Signatures" (which of course doesn't include Founders). I contacted Tesla a week or so ago and they said they were still on track. The dates we are getting now are definitely "underpromise, overdeliver", but at the same time who knows what glitches may happen.

    Mid battery size/black/tan leather/ air suspension. Estimated delivery Nov/Dec 2012. I have a lot of work to do to get ready.

    I'm Can Sig #5 and got the email yesterday.

    I also talk to the Sales rep, and he told me that if there is any of the 200 Canadian signature spot left by end of september, US customers who request it will have a signature model(depending how much will left from Canada) as they will produce 1200 signature model in North America prior to any general production.

    So if you are in the US, you can expect to have between 20 to 50 signature as there is currently just a little bit more than 160 Canadian Sig reservation , and they expect few downgrade to Gen prod. If you are in Canada it's time to configure your signature model.

    We received the email 8/23 at 11:20am PDT. We choose 85,air,pano,leather,tech,sound,19",dolphin. Estimated delivery Nov/Dec.

    We happen to be close to the Newport Beach store today so we went in to finalized. I have to say the assistants there, with Nate, was awesome. He was great. This is so not a "car buying" experience but a very enjoyable time with extremely friendly, helpful folks. Bravo TM.

    Yeah, I knew I forgot something. ;-) P4035 Also, Non-Perf.

    If p500 is december is it even possible to make up to 4k that month!? I have a feeling there will be a lot a disappointed people, but I am hoping they are going to over deliver somehow so I can get mine earlier than dec!
