I am in a real bad situation right now. I am reservation holder 13860 and could receive my Model sometimes summer this year. The problem that I have is that I will be moving to Europe due to a new job opportunity. This I did not know until about 3 weeks now. My delivery woudl be around summer 2013. With January 2014 I will be moving to Europe and would like to take my car with me. Unfortunetaly there is nothing in place on Tesla's side that I can bring my car with me.
I would loose my warranty and also it is not clear to me what changes I have to make on the car in order to operate my Model S legaly in Europe.
I already informed Tesla Motors about my situation and never get a clear answer what i have to do.
It looks like I have to cancel my reservation (which I hate to do) since i am not able to take my car with me even if I could drive it for a half year in the US. What happens to Model S owner in cases like that? It is quite normal that people have changes in their live and move to different countries. Thanks for your input.
