Placed confirmed order on 28 July. Requested delivery in September (no date specified). Today, following Tesla website updating, received "Production is complete - car is being prepared for pickup or delivery" message. My first transmitted delivery date was 9/9, soon moved to 9/12.
The reason I am posting this is because I ordered a 60kw...not a P85. The 60 is coming with MC red and a number of the usual options, so it's not a bare-bones machine. So for those wondering about production times, being bumped by performance models, delays to fulfill European backorders, here's an example of order-to-production-complete that took (assuming today's message is legit) six weeks. I did arrange financing very quickly, so that might have sped things along...I don't really know.
Pretty damn slick any way you look at it, if you ask me.
