All signs seem to be pointing to either a pause in production or at the least, a much slower pace than is being reported.
- No new VINs have been registered in more than 3 weeks.
- No one in this forum seems to be getting a VIN or delivery if they configured before Feb 1.
- Tesla Motors Club has a robust thread with pictures from the Fremont factory. The lot has been close to empty lately, where it used to be almost full.
My best guess is they're addressing issues in the production line to get to a higher output, and perhaps that's caused a pause or many pauses in production. I know they're going to be an eventual switch/tandem production with the fully automated line.
Any other guesses or info to share? I'm optimistic they are about to ramp up in a big way, given the non-owner invites that went out this week. Although invites are great, cars are better :-)
