I just finished a call with Tesla rep and it seems there are some reservation holders in Estonia. I'd be curious to hear about your experiences in finding financing and insurance options as when I started to investigate ca 1 month ago there were no good options :) In the meantime things might have improved a bit, but sharing experience would be nice. So why don't we start here.
Financing: nightmare because car has to be registered in Estonia or the banks tell you to screw yourself. Plan for now is that I buy car outright and once it's in Tallinn I'll sell it to the bank for financing. Still not sure they'll accept it though.
Insurance: ERGO and IF have provided quotes. Both were horrible, but Ergo was willing to offer more reasonable options once I chatted with them longer. I'm investigating further and if we could present a unified front it might be easier.
