This thread is for tracking the actual highest VIN-number. Actually I found a VIN 9903 at TeslaMotorClub.
When do we see the 10.000?
@cfOH......that's pretty cool.....thanks......
@cfOH - check out this: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqeF0BCgQY1TdC1WQk53Z0h0UER...
I can't remember which user was maintaining this. Search over at TMC.
After all the raw data from the petition drive, it's nice to see some statistical analysis for a change.
@nickjhowe Ah, interesting! Thanks for posting that link...too bad that spreadsheet seems to have been abandoned. It could be useful if we ever want to get an idea of fast Tesla has been ramping up the production rate.
cfOH...Nice. I want this next to Mr. Musk when he announces the 2ndQ numbers on July 22nd
@cfOH Nice graph! Can you add me? Confirmed 6/16, VIN 15508. You probably can pick up a lot more data from some of the TMC threads - check out "Latest finalize your order date" in the Ordering & Production sub-form.
@Thrak "My wife said I was nesting..." :)
Very nice! Thank you.
Sorry, my POSDH was directed at Matthew.
POSDH = ??
Highest: VIN#16448 (SevenOfNine)
Do the VIN #'s in the spreadsheet represent DELIVERED cars, or ORDERED cars?

dennisg13: VINs assigned as they enter production.
Thanks! I can't remember from the Q1 call, did Elon report 4750 cars MADE or DELIVERED or SOLD? My understanding is that Tesla does not consider a sale until the owner takes possession of the car. So it seems like they built at least 7000!!!!!! cars in Q2????
No. There are lots of VINs inside this range that has been assigned to EU cars. Cars that are not in production yet. For example I have VIN 14420 and my car probably won't enter production for a couple of weeks or so.
@Brian H - Yeah, only if another celeb like Jeri Ryan becomes a MS owner...
I heard somewhere that Weird Al was planning to buy an MS back in the day...
Then again, anything is possible. We even have alleged "owners" who complains about lack of cup holders and coat hangers...
VIN 16038, entered production June 26, estimated delivery July 30-Aug 13.
Hi guys, i am VIN # 16,358. I had my production on hold for 6 weeks because I wanted to see how progress was being made but three of us test drove it last Sunday in DC and were blown away that I had to get the production released. They are telling me end of July, early August for delivery!
There should be a disclaimer for anybody test driving stating;
Caution: Test driving may cause severe impulsions to purchase.
Tesla claims test drives result in 25% purchases... You are not part of the statistic.
compulsions + impulses = impulsions? Very inventive.
It's an actual word.
So it is, and "a force that moves something along" seems like a reasonable use here. But I like the combo meaning better!
MS 85 black, Tech pac, Air Susp, twin chargers
06/08/13 Test drive
06/25/13 order confirmed
06/25/13 Received Vin ...6071
remember to add the first 1000 Sigs to whatever number - actually 1200 if you include Canada -
@ fnealnwc, I finalized two days after you did and my VIN is 16XXX. How did you get such a low VIN number? Are you not in the US?
I think he omitted the xx1xxx, s/b xx16071
Finalized on 7-2, VIN 16472.
Finalized on 5/11 - picking up tomorrow morning. Vin 14661
16398. Delivery window 8/4-8/18
16487. Delivery window 8/6 - 8/20
Can you guys (and gals) who just recently added your VINs to this thread please also post the date that your order was finalized (i.e., sent to production) along with your VIN? Thanks.
Vin 16398. Finalized 7/1. Original delivery window to Houston service center was 7/28-8/11 then today got a different delivery window of 8/4-8/18
16489 finalized 7/8. Delivery window is 8/5-8/19 to West Virginia!! So pumped!
16487. Finalized 7/8. Delivery window 8/6 - 8/20 to MA.
Took delivery today in Virginia - VIN#13296. Awesome car.
Highest: VIN#16489 (romainiacWV)
Here's what I'm doing with the data folks post, in case you didn't see this a few pages ago:
In a nutshell, I'm using the past 2 months' worth of "orders" (reservations sent to production) to get an idea of how fast Tesla is selling new MSes. Now, of course, there's a difference between someone ordering a car and someone actually paying for it, but I expect the difference isn't gargantuan.
The image will update whenever I add new VINs.
Maybe not helpful... bought a floor model (delivery this week), VIN 11623 (which means I bought an ancient car, I guess)
@dirkhh Based on current production rates, that VIN was assigned likely 10-12 weeks ago, so not ancient (only relatively old by MS standards).
Ordered June 18
No word on a completion date.
I requested early August delivery to NC.
Love the chart! Awesome....
Am I looking at it correctly? Vin 16489 has a date of 7/8/13 on the chart, but date of 7/2/13 next to "End" ??
Nice work @cfOH!
And good catch Jackie! Since the slope is computed from the data points, the correction probably won't change the daily rate.
@Jackie, D'oh! I automated the Regression numbers, but forgot to convert the Diff numbers into calculations (since I'm not using them anyway). I'll drop those off the spreadsheet...thanks for taking a close look at it. :-)
How does this square with the following:
"kidjay | JULY 9, 2013
We took the factory June 25th after going through all the car pickup stuff. So our tour didn't start till 5:30pm, our appt was at 4:30p. The guy that did the tour ask if we wanted to walk the factory instead of the tram they had. By doing this, we were able to go to section were the tram couldn't go! We saw things that most people could not see and it was just my wife, my son, and myself! We didn't leave Fremont factory till 7:30pm. We spent that much time in the factory learning about the MS and going to almost every station on the ground level with robots in full operation and the factory on full throttle with the second shift of the day. The upstairs is off limit where they have the battery operation and some other secret stuff. By the way, they have monitors within the factory and it show how many MS they have produce that week so far. The week prior to us taking the tour. They pumped out 550 MS. The guy told us that was the most they have every done so far in 1 week!"
@samosam My chart is currently estimating 544 MSes per week, so 550 is pretty darn close. I'm already seeing some evidence that the rate of production is increasing over time (recent holiday time off notwithstanding), so by the end of the year, 600 per week is probably reasonable, if not higher.
