not seeing a lot of deliveries - can Elon build this thing - are they building this thing
I mean the reveal was Sept. - and we're almost 6 months later and deliveries still seem to be a trickle…
UPDATE: after 200'ish post - the conclusion of this very entertaining thread is: no! evidence suggests deliveries are still a trickle or nonexistent, but clearly in-consequential in quantity at this point in time - however there is strong passion that this will improve any day now. I as the original poster and Tesla fan find the progress to-date to be lack luster and concerning (but people do not share my concern universally).
there is however scant evidence of any major break in the log jam of Model X deliveries - hopefully soon Tesla will over come these delay's.
Update 03/12/2016 - deliveries are seeming to take place - so there was a stall - but it may be gone now - I hope this isn't an end of quarter push - and then another stall after earnings - and I also hope there are not a lot of problems with the cars being delivered - time will tell.
Update 03/16/2016 - deliveries are now clearly happening - this is probably the biggest week so far - with a steady (but not large) number of deliveries being reported - I wouldn't call it "full" production - but Tesla is clearly moving forward - we are now at a tipping point deliveries may continue to grow and become more and more steady - or they may fall back as Tesla does another round of production tuning - the key aspect for me will be if the delivery rate remains mostly steady to slightly increasing after 03/31 - that will indicate to me this is not an artificial end of quarter push and Tesla is actually now ready for production approximately 6 months after they claimed Model X production was beginning (the sept. roll out event).
Update 04/09/2016 - I would appreciate any evidence deliveries have not slowed since the end of the quarter - however my read from the forums is that once again Tesla simply ramped production to provide cars at the end of the quarter so that Elon doesn't have to publicly admit they've designed a car that can be barely built, and certainly so complex that achieving any measure of reliability is a hit/miss affair (battery and drive train reliability is beyond reproach it's a solid mechanical car) - but the doors, windows, sensor continue to be a problem. By all accounts the "march batch" of X's are better than the "december batch" - but still not good enough for actual continued deliveries. Again evidence would be appreciate…but it appears to me personally the Model X will continue a pattern of delivery near the end of a quarter so Tesla does't have to admit defeat publicly - but based on the number of X's at my 2 local bay area service centers (all with less than 1000 miles on them) they are not a reliable car as delivered from the Factory.
