New Model S Reservation holder

New Model S Reservation holder

Finally did it! I've placed my reservation for a Model S. Test driving the Roadster was the final straw...these cars are amazing. Oh, and I got a jacket to go with my reservation...

Straight Shooter | March 15, 2011

Canadian Signatures are confirmed. I upgraded my Model S about 2hrs after getting the E-Mail. My Model S reservation number was #91 . I got the confirmation back from Tesla already stating that my reservation was upgraded and confirmed. I did not get a sequence number yet for the Signature, but I'll send it in just as soon as it becomes available.

Vexar | March 17, 2011

I was given #3371 and am in the United States of America. Not quite as elite as 1337, but I'll take it. This is a standard S reservation.

Brian H | March 17, 2011

It strikes me that conversions to Signature will leave "gaps" in the Production sequence, so the latest assigned number will not actually represent the total reserved. Don't know what proportion of the Sig series are conversions.

William13 | March 17, 2011

I have added a signature reservation to my old production reservation. I doubt that I would take both but will not give up the P951 from two years ago until I am happy with the options on the signature.

March 16, 2011. S234.

Brian H | March 17, 2011

But you will only exercise one of them, so my point stands: the total is overstated by one because of YOU!

ColinBowern | March 19, 2011

I upgraded to a Model S here in Canada and my reservation number when from P123 to S123.

Tim10 | March 19, 2011

ColinB, I don' t think Tesla has done any reordering of the signature series numbers yet and probably won't until next week at the earliest. So far there have been 5 others that have upgraded but all keeping their same p series number. Expectation is that sometime after the 21 st upgrade deadline they will compress the list and we will be given new numbers. You should be much lower than 123 when it is done, unless every other Canadian in the list decides to upgrade.

William13 | March 19, 2011

Sorry Brian H, I don't understand text talk well. Frown, wink, ? .

You are right I will only buy one ModelS but will keep both deposits for now. I don't want to lose my place in the p line if I skip the signature for some reason. Expensive but my dream since seeing a Baker Electric using original batteries 40 years ago.

ocatty | March 19, 2011

I went to Newport Beach yesterday afternoon to check out the Model S. The actual car, as opposed to the photos, didn't disappoint. What did disappoint was the arrogant attitude of the representative. Every question I asked was responded to with defensive and condescending answers. The guy really didn't know what he was talking about. I walked out of the Tesla dealership with a bad taste in my mouth - I felt almost like requesting a refund on my deposit. Anyone else have this experience? I think Tesla needs to re-evaluate this guy's position in their company.

Tim10 | March 19, 2011

Ocatty, once with your experience is enough, you voiced an opinion, only once is needed.

Douglas3 | March 19, 2011

"catty" for sure. I must counter that everyone I have ever spoken to at Tesla in the last two years has been extremely professional and very helpful.

They have always bent over backwards to help me out. A Tesla Ranger stopped by my house today to check something in my Roadster, and it turned out he just happened to be in town on a family visit and took the time out to check my car! That's way above and beyond the call.

stephenpace | March 19, 2011

Hello, all. Just got my Model S reservation in and they told me on 14 March 2011 that I had the US 3,331st spot. I almost replied and asked for the 3333 spot but decided against it. :-)

Also, I finally got to visit my first dealership--the London location. They couldn't have been nicer and I enjoyed looking at the three Roadsters they had there. Still, the Model S is the car for me and I can't wait for 2012!

jwcormier | March 20, 2011

Placed my Model S reservation March 17th - I have US reservation # 3384. I'm guessing at this point it will be well into 2013 before I take delivery (unless I'm missing something about their production schedule).

Hi
1. Wouldn t it be easier if the most recent blogs would be on the first page (i.e. reverse the order) instead of skipping to the last page?
2. UK based, I 'upgraded to a Signature, but have no confirmation (or different order number).

Volker.Berlin | March 21, 2011

Probably, yes. You should mention your suggestion in this thread:

At least, when you click on the link "x new" instead of on the topic title, you jump directly to the first new post in that topic.

vouteb - I could not agree more. I would also like to be able to email indiviual users if need be.

msiano17 | March 21, 2011

Running totals so far of 4502 reservations for the Model S. That number is based on the meticulous upkeep of MichiganModelS

If they plan on the 5000 production for the first year then it would make sense to deliver to all the North American Reservations and then the rest in early 2013 to me .. but I am just guessing.

ViewAskew | March 22, 2011

Well, I took the leap and made my reservation. I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself.

Congratulations and welcome to the Tesla family! You have successfully reserved a place in the Model S production queue.

Your reservation sequence number is 3,408 of the General Production reservation list.

Straight Shooter | March 23, 2011

Hey "michiganmodels" , time to update your list.

I just got an E-Mail from Dan Myggen at Tesla. My Canadian Model S Signature upgrade is confirmed. I am # 55, so obviously there are 55 cars so far, as of 7:30pm EST.

You can take of the asterisk :)

As well, we were all given another E-Mail on Tues Mar 22nd at 12 noon stating that.....

"We are happy to announce the availability of a Canadian Model S Signature Series. The first 200 Model S vehicles produced for Canada will now be Signature Series vehicles. Model S production will begin mid-2012 and production of Canadian vehicles will begin approximately three months later."

So we are at least 55 cars into that magic number of 200.

Douglas3 | March 23, 2011

michiganmodels,

Just FYI, I was Canadian R10, and am now S10, so I suspect there aren't any Canadian R's left!

Obviously you can't just add up the numbers to find out how many reservations there are.

michiganmodels | March 24, 2011

Douglas3 - Thanks for the heads up. I agree one should not simply add up the numbers (hence the "grain of salt" comment). I (and I beleive others) find it insightful to see the numbers assigned to reservation holders to have some idea of demand (as rough as it may be).

ckessel | March 24, 2011

I was considering upgrading to a Sig largely to bump up in the delivery priority, but with the 300 battery taking precedence in delivery orders, I'm wondering it'd be worth while. There are, presumably, a good many reservation holders that'll wait for the 160 or 230 battery. Of course, it depends on what cool goodies the Sig offers too.

michiganmodels | March 24, 2011

ckessel - do you plan on purchasing/leasing a 300 mile general production Model S? If so, you should reserve the Signature series.

If, I) you are aware of the pricing/production order announcement (which it appears you are), II) the $35,000 differential is not a concern, III) you are going to select a 300 mile Model S anyway,I do not see any reason to remain a 300 mile Model S general production reservation holder.

cablechewer | March 24, 2011

Well I was P120 something for Canada (P125? or was it p138? - somewhere in this range). Now that I switched to a Signature Edition I am S69.

It's 606 since I reserved mine on 1/5. That's about 7.5 a day. At that rate, that'll be another 2000+ over the course of the year.

Hong Kong started accepting general reservations for Model S on March 23rd.

A couple of days later I heard I was R1 (reserved pretty much immediately at launch on March 23rd).

Deliveries are scheduled to start in the spring/summer of 2013. Here in Hong Kong we get zero first registration tax benefit until spring 2014 (which makes the care very competitive for its class, as most other premium cars pay close to 100% first registration tax).

michiganmodels | March 28, 2011

Markwj - did you reserve a Model S or a Roadster? I ask for clarification whether it is R1 as in Roadster reservation 1 or "reservation 1" Model S. Do you know if Tesla has sold any Roadsters in China?

Michiganmodels, I reserved a Model S and own a roadster. It is #1 reservation for Model S in roadster owners/friends/family list in Hong Kong.

Tesla have sold 15+ roadsters so far in Hong Kong (they opened shop here late last year). Not sure about China sales, but I do know that Tesla have no official channel there. They do have an official channel in Hong. Kong.

msiano17 | March 29, 2011

We are at 4646 total reservations world wide. That is amazing. Anyone want to bet any wagers on how many reservations will be made before the first Sig roles off the line?

I will say 6700 before the first S roles out of production. Any takers?

Tim10 | March 29, 2011

There appears to have been over 300 reservations in the last month. I would guess there will be over 9000 reservations by the time the first is delivered.

Nicu | March 30, 2011

Reservation rates will probably increase once the betas are out so people could see / drive them. It will coincide with the advertising push by Tesla. Options and pricing will be definitive and probably a release date. For many people seeing / touching is believing, there were too many "wonders" that turned out to be just pie in the sky in the past !

This will surely validate Tesla's choice to invest a bit more in the production line to be able to produce 20k cars / year wit one shift, meaning that if demand is crushing, they could rapidly increase it to 60k / year :)

My TSLA shares and leaps will probably allow me at that point to order the S I want, preferably the sports version :D
