Has anyone been invited to configure in 2018? What’s with the slowdown? Why are things so quiet after seemingly being moving quickly before the new year?
Well... they did invite at least 15,000 to configure, so they are still building those cars for owners. Now some of those asked to configure are waiting for future options (smaller battery, etc.), but I'm sure it is more than the 2410 built in Q4-2017.
Tesla in the past has shut the factory down for a week at the start of the year. I don't know if they did it this year, but after the hard end-of-year push, it provides a bit of recovery time for the crew until the next onslaught of builds start!
Has anyone outside of California been invited to configure yet?
It's only been 4 days in the new year. Calm down please.
@Sever - no.
@TT, I sort of hope they did shut it down. Give them a break. I'm sure it's been very stressful. AFAIK we've heard of no new configuration invites so maybe a shut down is why....
It is moving quickly. Considering they only delivered 220 cars in the entirety of quarter 3, they're moving almost 8x faster. If we consider the vehicles en-route, its about 10x faster than the previous quarter. So if you take it quarter by quarter, you may consider that they improve 10-fold each quarter. So 220, then 2200, then 22000, then 220000. Take a look at what an exponential curve looks like. It starts out slow.
Just received the invite email 9:45am. CA MS since 2015. ordered 4/1 4 weeks delivery
There are now posts by owners outside of CA (on the East coast even) reporting they've gotten invites today.
Sever and KP -
I think the answer is now "Yes"https://forums.tesla.com/forum/forums/east-coast-invite

Yes, but you at least posted a thread that is on this forum, I only just now saw that one and came back here to post the more relevant link.
