My model s performance is ordered since febrary 2013.
The paperwork is complete since the 23 rd of may. The delivery was Schedule for Oct/Nov 2013.
Today I received this message from Tesla :
Thank you for your email.
Please be advised that you can expect delivery of your vehicle in January 2014. Please be rest assured that his is not a delay in production as the first cars have still been built as per our production plan. It is a shift of the logistics time frame for the shipment of cars from Fremont to Europe. Trans-continental transport can be a bit unpredictable due to weather,strikes and overcapacity ports etc and our goal as a company is of course to avoid that we create an incorrect expectation patternwhere possible. As it stands now, you can expect delivery in January 2014. Please note that we have learned so much from this and as you can imagine this is the learning cycle every company has got to go through and for us as a start up no different. The same happened in the U.S. when we started production and we have now learned as a young company.
We will work very hard to get your car out to you as early as possible and understand this can be a bit disappointing. In the meantime if there’s anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

This is not acceptable as far as Tesla, on the website, is giving 5 months delay for an order made today !!!
I am so disapointed that I even think about giving up to get this car that makes me dream since 7 months !!!
