I preordered my Model 3 back in May 2016 like most of us here on the forum. I configured towards the end of June, and I received an email about a week and a half ago saying that I would be getting my M3 within two weeks and to pick a date and time for pick up. I choose Saturday Sept. 22, I live about 5 minutes away from the Tesla dealer so that should have been a quick and painless transaction. I immediately put my car for sale and sold it on Tuesday Sept. 18. About 5 days before my expected delivery I emailed and inquired about a Vin #, was told not one was assigned yet, but not to worry that within a day or two I should have that info. Fast forward to Saturday Sept. 22, 9am and I get a phone saying that there was a "pilot program" where buyers would be "matched" with Vin #s of the cars configured BUT that the car I configured wasn't available yet and they did not know when it would be available. I configured a Obs Black, 19", FSD. I was on the phone twice today with Tesla and I tried to explain to them that I didn't have an issue waiting, heck, I've waited 30 months now. The Issue is, I don't have a car to get around on. I was put in a financial hardship, I did everything I was supposed to do. I even ordered my charger, its still in the box in my garage. Tesla management was supposed to get back to me this evening and that didn't happen. Now I'm not sure as what to do? Has this happened to anyone else here? Im not looking for anything for free, just want my M3 or any car as a matter of fact.
