Will I be part of the late 2018 batch?

Will I be part of the late 2018 batch?

My Model 3 was reserved on 10/23/2016. At that time, Tesla had not put up the notice regarding the late 2018 delivery for new orders. I know this is not official, but will my order be part of the "new" reservations? When I login, it tells me the following, "Your Model 3 was reserved on 10/23/2016. Deliveries will begin in late 2017. You'll be invited to configure based on the date of your reservation. If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQ."

Well, that will be hard for any of us to guess because we don't know what the present number of reservations is. In it's Q3 filing, Tesla apparently reported having $690,000,000 in deposits. If that is just for the M≡, that equates to 690,000 reservation. Elon did Tweet that the first year's production is essentially sold out.

All of this of course doesn't add into the mix the other factors that play into when one gets their car. Those would be where you are located and how you option out the car.
