    I am glad my impromptu query has led to shedding light for a bunch more folks waiting up here. It does seem that a pattern has emerged that the SSL's are the only ones with known VINs so far. On the other hand, what we have in the last two days is just a snapshot at one moment.

    We know from GeorgeB's generous communications that Candian production only began in the last couple weeks. It seems plausible that only small percentage of production slots have been reserved for Canada cars. They still have so many supply and logistics challenges to address that it was probably unrealistic to assume that all Canadian Signatures would be produced in one continuous undiluted block.

    2017 for me! I had asked a question about winter tires and they were like, "Oh, by the way, it looks like you have a vin". They are still trying hard for year-end, "hopefully by the holidays". <Tesla grin>

    @colinb, please verify your VIN. Could it be 2008 or 2018?

    Thanks!

    why would you say that? his VIN is very plausible being as the Can SS start at 2000 and S1 starts at 17 then theoretically S163 could be as large as 2180 ... why would you think it would be less?

    I would expect the reason for the higher VIN is Tesla has produced a number of Demo, etc Vehicles... There are only 1200 Signatures (Canada + US)

    I agree with @clea. Seems Canadian VINs start at 2000 or 2001, the first 20+ or these are going to "Signature Special" cars, that is Roadster owners. Then the regular Signatures start, and should count up to at least VIN 02150 or so. Best info we have is that at least 150 Canadian Signatures were actually reserved, and then about 40-50 of the original 200 allocation were shifted to the U.S. in October.

    Furthermore, it seems that they inserted about 950 U.S. "R" (non-Signature Roadster owners) and "P" (general production) VINs in between the U.S. Signatures and the Canadian Signatures. This was probably done to fill all the production slots while they finalized all the Canadian approvals, export/import requirements, and shipping arrangements, that is what we are now waiting for! So that way, even though a bunch of Canadian cars have actually been built (over 100 it seems), they are on hold now, but will be delivered close to overall VIN sequence with U.S. cars, starting in mid-December. Fingers crossed for all of us!

    Given the reservation numbers posted earlier and that SS1 is at 2001. I should have been at ~VIN ...2052. I am confirmed at VIN ...2032 (from S29) so looks like 20 SS's or S's before me deferred, move to R or cancelled. Sort of surprised at that.

    It's possible, but another option is that they may have done some slight batching due to configurations. Because I'm fairly certain that there wouldn't have been 6 out of 23 SSL's cancelling (since mine is 2017, only 17 SSL's are in front of my VIN). It's all moot because they will be delivering most Sig's at once, or at least within a couple of weeks.

    2108 is confirmed based on the email from the ownership team in California.
