What difference will the first 1000 S models be from the rest,and it appears over 3000,are in reserve at this time,what is the time frame for 3001?

Latest count is almost 4200! If TM hits their 1st yr production target of 7,000, all should be delivered in 2012. Theoretically.

Only Elon knows the first year target. There is no way to ramp up to full production overnight. I hope they can make two thousand in 2012.

Hopefully 2447 made in 2012 seeing thats my reservation number!

Elon is shooting for 7000 Model S delivered by the end of 2012 / beginning of 2013.

Still working out the details for when I get to reserve mine :P

Deliveries for North America begin in mid-2012. The first 1000 cars off the line will be the North American Model S Signature Series. [...] After the Model S Signature Series, deliveries for North America will continue with the 300 mile batteries, followed by 230 and 160 options later in 2012. Delivery of the European left-hand drive Model S is scheduled to begin in late 2012. In mid-2013 we plan to begin delivering the right-hand drive Model S for Europe and Asia. Each launch will begin with a limited edition Signature Series. We expect to produce approximately 5,000 units in 2012 as we ramp to full single shift production capacity of 20,000 units per year in 2013.
