    No one is getting NDAs, especially on the SSL list. Founders may be insiders (for stock purposes), so may have other reasons they wouldn't want to be too public with their comments on the car. But it's beyond unlikely that any "regular" SSL is being put under any restrictions by Tesla upon their taking possession of the car.

    I can’t see a NDA for Sig Cars … what would be the enforcement mechanism … no firmware upgrades ….. quick, give me the pen I’ll sign

    I'm safe and sound so far, so I guess I was too far off the mark. And, for the record, I'm not a conspiracy theorist and in my experience this is all normal for a manufacturing ramp-up.

    Okay, I guess I was taken just slightly too seriously there...

    I'm passing the time until "mid-to-late October" and I posted it for fun. I have no evidence, or even an inkling that owners are being asked to sign secret NDA's before they'll get their cars. None at all. Absolutely none. My NDA would prohibit me disclosing that.

    (Seriously, REALLY... there is nothing to the story of an NDA or "radio silence". I'm not affiliated with Tesla in any way, except as a reservation holder for a Signature-series car. I'm not a best friend of Elon or George or any of the others there. I've driven by the factory once. I've visited their store in Santana Row once. I saw a Roadster on highway 101 once. That's it, though, nothing more. It was a joke.)

    Is someone putting you under duress to say that?

    I think it's hilarious that one guy makes a joke about secrecy and suddenly everyone is debating NDAs. That's funnier than the original joke!

    Ha! So now you're trying to convince us that there is no conspiracy. I think that proves you're part of the conspiracy.

    I would. And what I'd do is spend that time racking up all sorts of text and video that I could post the moment it expired

    Wow! When I started reading this thread today and saw that there were so many posts, I got excited thinking there must be some good news. Then after a bunch of speculation about NDA's and conspiracy theories, I realized it was NOTHING. Can't we try to keep this thread about "Delivery Updates" (i.e. FACTS)?
