I ordered my car earlier this year (P85) and heard nothing after initial confirmation. Have asked for status a couple of times without any real news in the replies. A couple of weeks ago the status on my dashboard changed to something like "Car been built, in transit from factory". I was puzzled as I had expected them to contact me before building - to maybe confirm configuration and order? But I haven't even been contacted to be informed that the car was built.
Don't want to be that complaining customer, but this is a little strange. Maybe I had too high expectations to how Tesla would follow up on their new, risk-taking and eager customer base. We're VERY excited, why not do everything you can to capitalise on that - especially when just sending e-mail updates is so simple.
Now I'm wondering what the rest of you experienced at this point. How long did it take from the car was made until you heard anything from Tesla? Or how long before it was ready to deliver? If I want to order extra stuff, like tires etc, don't they need time to order this in so it's ready when the car arrives, or arrange with me where I want to pick it up? I would like to see the final cost to arrange for my financing before the holiday, but don't know what that will be yet.
Back when I ordered the car I was given an estimate of December delivery (live in Stavanger, Norway), but no update or confirmation on that. Got another car to sell and of course I'm impatient... Same with the financing they offered, had to ask for a reply since I got no reply from them. Still not received any details or documents/terms etc on the finances they claim is approved.
I know they are building up the organisation, just thought they would have focus also on this.
