We have begun sourcing parts for your order

We have begun sourcing parts for your order

Checked into my dashboard today and received a new updated message! VIN 16080 was assigned on June 26 and Dashboard now says "We have begun sourcing parts for your order". Anyone have input on timing from this point to actual delivery? My delivery window is scheduled for July 26 - August 9.

I am hoping this will put it closer to the 26th.

Same here emoflash. Checking the dashboard on a daily base :). I'm even willing to cancel my holiday to receive it sooner :)

Anonymous | July 12, 2013

Daily? I check it about every 15 minutes! VIN 16492 finalized on 7-8

Sailor | July 12, 2013

Are you getting a specific delivery window from someone on the phone at Tesla or from some other part of the website?
All I know is that is an "August" delivery.

mdemetri | July 12, 2013

Hmmmm, "We have begun sourcing parts for your order" does not sound encouraging. I never saw such a message when my car was being built in Feb for a early March delivery. I also did not see anyone else posting about such a meassage earlier on. It makes me concerned that they have a supply chain problem that may delay your car. I certainly hope I am wrong.

tobi_ger | July 12, 2013

Website was updated last night (down for several hours); I guess they added more status entries for a more detailed report. It might be, that they're back-feeding the correct statuses in time for already delivered cars or need to make another website update to get this smoothed out.

randyy | July 12, 2013

Today I got the "sourcing parts" status, but my delivery window is still "Late July" on the website. The actual dates ares July 28-August 11.

TheCheetahExpress | July 12, 2013

@randyy, that is my exact timeframe as well. I just spoke to somebody at Tesla and they said it does not mean any delay and in fact is good news as it is on its way to production. He told me it says the sourcing parts status because it has now transitioned from the 2 week grace period and everything is on schedule.

TexasYes | July 12, 2013

My experience is that delivery status is anything but consistent. I can't tell you how many times I have been told that my car was "entering production" only to be told Several times over the following few weeks that it "entering production."

So l wouldn't trust everything that you read or an told

Capriena | July 12, 2013

My delivery window was July 18 to Aug 1st and got notified the delivery date is July 23rd.

Brian H | July 12, 2013

Once sourcing begins, your car is officially "locked in" to the production schedule.

MichL | July 12, 2013

I got the 'sourcing parts' screen sometime in the last few days and they called me 2 days ago for an Aug 2 delivery to SoCal. Order was confirmed June 27th.

Colasec | July 12, 2013


Same as me - my window is 7/18 to 8/1 with a delivery date of 7/23. Where are you picking up and what is your config?

Mine is 60/black/black leather/piano/tech/pano.

emoflash | July 12, 2013

I missed my call but got an email stating my car will be delivered to the service center on July 30th! I have to coordinate my information with my sales person and finalize a pick up date. I called back but he was gone for the day. Two more days of waiting before I can finalize everything!

michael1800 | July 12, 2013

I reserved in May and received in June and already the update status wording has changed. It looks like they've updated the updating again. You folks are the pioneers as far as the new status wordings go. Your DS contacts will be able to shed more light on the actual timing. Anything else is guess work until the current system has been out there longer. Welcome to your month of non-stop forum checking!

ironmikeii | July 12, 2013

I'm in the same boat with status change today. I was also prompted to apply for financing, provide DL #, complete address for accessory delivery (wall charger), appraisal contact for sale of any trade in and contact for Solar City. Also indicated late August delivery. I ordered on July 2nd. P85+/green/black-CF/grey wheels/pano

pdx4s | July 12, 2013

same "sourcing parts" on my dashboard as of this morning, asked for delivery in beginning of Sep. so no rush for me yet, but this should be a positive sign overall. Was told by the TM local shop it takes about 2 weeks to get the parts ordered from stores/vendors and to allow mfg. to load the config. into their system. Its all about JIT (just in time) and lean manufacturing to keep mfg. cost in control (I hope).

This is also to let the owner know it passed the point of no refund for the res.

I never had this experience with any product I ever ordered in the past. Next would be nice to provide a link with a live feed from the ass. line floor or a pic of the car as it passes the main mfg. steps, like a new born... But then folks will stick to the monitors all day.... :-)

eddiemoy | July 12, 2013

got the same today, my delivery window is 8/2-5.

Newampster | July 12, 2013

I picked up my MS85 today. They told me the My Tesla site had been upgraded last night. I enjoyed my 150 mile ride home, set it on charge and checked the site only to get the "sourcing" message. Just a glitch they will resolve.

Anonymous | July 12, 2013

Mine just went from "We have begun sourcing parts for your order" to blank?

Brian H | July 13, 2013

Shopping around, getting quotes on your car's components, lowest bids win? Eek!

artman | July 13, 2013

Mine is blank now too. I had the "sourcing parts" message about an hour ago.

Jean PierreD | July 13, 2013

sign 14982 is blank too;
does it mean that delivery is closer and that the sales representative will take ove?
my delivery is planned end august. and your's?

Superraz | July 13, 2013


I am in the same situation as you. Mine just went blank. I am supposed to take delivery at the end of July.

qblack1 | July 13, 2013

Checking it daily, at the least...
VIN 16425 P85+/Black/Black/Carbon fiber/21" Grey wheels/Pano/Tech/Rear seats
Finalized 7/2/2013
Assuming ballpark delivery 8/7/2013 if other poster's experience applied.
Estimating from finalization to delivery, around calendar 35 days (per a few forum posts)
Would be great if current owners could throw us "forum dweller/chronic MyTesla checkers" more specifics about their actual finalized to delivery timespan...

eddiemoy | July 13, 2013

blank for me as well.

warlord | July 13, 2013

"Sourcing parts" appears to be a pretty generic message. I ordered a floor model, and it says the same thing as custom builds.

Mine is scheduled for delivery on friday.

andrewadams | July 13, 2013

Mine went from " sourcing" to blank today as well.
Delivery date stil mid August

Sailor | July 13, 2013

I've gone blank too.
Makes one wonder what the original message was there for and what it actually meant as well as why the move to blank now.
Oh well, all part of the process I guess. One thing for certain, it does no damage to my enthusiasm and excitement. I'm checking the forums twice a day and the My Tesla page (multiple times a day)for any bones that Tesla can throw me.......

Fred O | July 13, 2013

Yep it's blank today. So Tezzla is right in checking every 15 minutes. That way at least it looks like something is happening and so much more fun than seeing "Your order has been confirmed" for weeks/months on end.

randyy | July 13, 2013

Probably working on the status flow and had it incorrectly set to change everyone who was in confirmed status to 'sourcing'. Obviously the fix was pushed out last night.

They will get the status messages sorted out about when we get our cars probably :)

Capriena | July 13, 2013


Pick up at Van Nuys, Ca at 2pm

MS85/grey/black leather/piano/tech

tobi_ger | July 13, 2013

Nice, now even with piano?! How cool is that! :)

soren | July 13, 2013

Still haven't got my vin, but aperantly Tesla are sourcing my parts to my non-existent car :)

TheCheetahExpress | July 13, 2013

I have the blank status too but also, my delivery date which said late july is gone too. In fact, there is nothing about a delivery date. Anybody else have this removed as well?

Sailor | July 13, 2013

Had and have Vin# assigned.
Status was that theories was confirmed, then moved to sourcing parts then blank.
I have an August delivery but have never had a window of dates like people here are talking about.
Are you getting the tight delivery window from someone at Tesla or is it posted somewhere on your status on your "My Tesla" page?

TheCheetahExpress | July 13, 2013

Did receive an email a 1-2 weeks ago with a delivery window of july 28-aug 11 and then in the dashboard stating late july but now don't see that. Guess will wait until Monday.

justineet | July 13, 2013

Looks like they r working on a software's not reporting status of orders accurately.........

MichiganModelX | July 13, 2013

I spoke with the manager in the Chicago store... I know for a fact this is just a glitch with the update of the MyTesla page as my car was already built, at the Columbus service center awaiting delivery and it had the same exact "sourcing parts for your order" message last night.

Please do not worry... your car is not delayed in any way. They are just upgrading the site with more info to keep us excited as we await arrival of our life-changing vehicles.

Colasec | July 13, 2013


Ah, I was wondering if you were going to be at Costa Mesa like me, or if our cars are similarly configured... guess not. Thanks though - and have fun at your delivery!

Sailor | July 17, 2013

Well, the sourcing parts for your order is back on the My Tesla page....hmmmmm. Can only be a good thing......

randyy | July 17, 2013

Today my screen updated to:

"The Tesla Factory is building your Model S."

:) :) :) :) :) :)

eplaza | July 17, 2013

Last tuesday 7/9 I recieved the sourcing message. On friday it changed along with my dashboard to read the car was in production. Yesterday 7/16 I spoke with a delivery specialist indicating a window of 8/5-8/15 with a projected date of 8/8, in the chicago area on #17149. Today my dashboard is back to sourcing. Go figure!

emoflash | July 17, 2013

Mine is updated as well. My delivery is scheduled for two weeks from today!!!! Cant wait!

cfOH | July 17, 2013

@randyy Mine says "The Tesla Factory is building your Model S." as well this morning. My "end of line" date (when it finally completes inspection) is 7/22, so these update statuses are starting to make more sense.

AmpedRealtor | July 17, 2013

Wouldn't it be nice if they could provide us with a webcam link so we can follow the assembly of our car throughout the factory? LOL :) that would be cool.

tobi_ger | July 17, 2013

If they had a public channel on UStream, like NASA does, I'd watch it all day! lol

pdx4s | July 17, 2013

AmpedRealtor, that was my idea, see post from 7/12, pls.... :-)

That would be another way, from customer experience stand point, that would differentiate TM from the other car mfg. or any other mfg. in the world, I think Boeing was planning to have one in their Charleston 787 ass. line.

mine says "... we will contact you 2 weeks before car is done..."

eplaza | July 17, 2013

cfOH, glad your's makes sense as mine went from the Tesla factory is building your model S, which I had since last week to today showing we are sourcing parts!

cfOH | July 18, 2013

On Monday, my status was We have begun sourcing parts for your Model S.

Yesterday, my status changed to The Tesla Factory is building your Model S. "Aha! Progress!" I thought.

Today, I'm back to We have begun sourcing parts for your Model S.

Oh why do you taunt me so, Tesla??

LionPowered | July 18, 2013

My order was also messed up. The DS told me it was due to European production. My delivery date moved from July 25 to sometime in August.
