Sure, I know it's blasphemous but as much as I'm dying to get my Model S (R10,917) my lease doesn't run out for nearly a year. When I reserved in August they were figuring it would be about a one year wait, which would have been perfect. Since R9000+ have gotten their time to build notices with March-ish time frames, I'll clearly need to defer for a little bit (aiming for delivery between August and November, but can't imagine being able to get out of my lease without a painful hit before August).
My question is, has anyone deferred, and how much control do you have over where you land in line? Or do you even need to defer now? It sounded from a few posts as though you can just wait and wait to do final configuration and control your timing that way. Any help is appreciated!
