Looks like all of our inquiries did the trick! Here is an official letter from George Blankenship all the reservation holders just received. I'm posting it here for those of you who are still on the fence and haven't reserved your Model S yet:
2011 has been a great year for Tesla. As we wind down the year and head into 2012, you will start to see some very exciting things happening in the next few months.
We'll be releasing U.S. pricing for Model S shortly. There have been a lot of rumors about price increases out there. I'm happy to say that we will deliver Model S with the 40kWh battery at the price we announced in 2009 of 49,900 after federal tax credits. We will also stick to other commitments we made earlier this year regarding delivery of the 85kWh battery the middle of 2012, the 60 kWh battery about 3 months later and the 40 kWh battery around the end of the year. Be on the look out for more detailed U.S. Model S pricing and options packages in the next few weeks. This pricing will be in effect for all current U.S. reservation holders.
Early in the new year we will begin gathering updated information for all reservation holders. We want to make sure that configuration, final ordering and delivery of your Model S all happen smoothly, efficiently and in a fun way. Having current email, mailing addresses and phone numbers will help make that possible. Thank you in advance for your help with this.
In the next few months we will significantly enhance our Model S configurator on the web and in our retail stores. This update will include great new interior and exterior views of Model S and a new configuration tool that will allow you create your favorite Model S variations. You will be able to save your favorite combinations for future review and customization.
Early next year we will also be enhancing the MyTesla area of our website. It will allow you to keep track of your favorite Model S configurations and the progress of your actual vehicle as you go through the configuration, ordering and delivery process. It will be the place for you to find out everything you need to know in an interactive, engaging way.
We also plan to have more events at our Fremont Factory in 2012, and a few other surprises that we're sure you will enjoy. Stay tuned, great things are happening.
Because of you, 2011 was a great year at Tesla. 2012 will be even better. As always, we thank you for your continued support as we work very hard to change the world.
Best wishes to all for a Happy Holiday season.
