I have sequence number 12,848 so am in the back of the line so to speak and will probably get my hands on the Model S in June/July if I am lucky and production ramps up significantly.
For those of us getting the Model S in the latter part of next year due to our sequencing number, do you think we will be getting a slighly enhanced version of the car over those getting their deliveries today? Most vehicles have a normal lifecycle with small improvements that happen year-to-year. I understand the Model S will have most updates via software and so naturally i will have the latest firmware when getting my vehicle like most others.
However, I'm sure Tesla is going through a learning process on the Model S and as such will find things that they have the opportunity to improve. Perhaps items like folding mirrors where a software update may not do the trick but an actual physical improvement is required. Any thoughts on non-software updates they may make, or will they hold-off until the next iteration of the car even if they find things they can fix now?
