    While it would be nice to have an American Thanksgiving party, I guess I could settle for an EARLY Christmas party. Tessie should probably be my only gift this year for Christmas, anyway, since I'm paying that big, jolly, fat Sig. premium.

    Well this doesn't look good:

    Apparently they're lining up deliveries of American General Production (Roadster Friend and Family) cars now. No sign of Canadian Signatures. So I guess their earlier promise to deliver Canadian Signatures immediately after the USA Signatures has gone by the boards.

    I must say Tesla's communications in this area have been very poor.

    I suggest we all contact Tesla and ask them if they can give us a delivery window, and whether the 1200 NA Signatures will be the first cars produced, as per George B's blog. And if not, why not? Are there import issues? If we all ask, hopefully one of us gets a response, and maybe they'll get the idea that we're not pleased (while remaining polite)

    I'd be completely baffled as to why they wouldn't; I know they held off our finalization emails a bit because of the pricing delays, but we finalized well before the US Signatures were half started.

    While I too am disappointed Doug (nothing, nothing riles most Canadians than playing second fiddle to the Yanks when it comes to consumer goods), I think we need to consider a couple of things here...

    #1... Are some homologation issues holding things up?...possibly, not all issues may have gone as Tesla hoped...

    #2...TMC stated that production of Canadian Sigs would start approximately three months after the start of U.S. Production...outside of the founder's deliveries, when would you say the U.S. production officially started?
    If the U.S. Production officially started in July, then production of the Canadian Sigs should start in October (a la` Roadster...delivery expected in November)...this may be a "phantom disappointment" as it appears that until further notice from Tesla, we will still see our vehicles delivered in November...

    I posted some thoughts in Model S Delivery Update - Page 119

    They actually did send out some American general production lock-in emails before Canadian Sigs. Assuming they intend to build in that same order, I'd expect there would be at least a couple of weeks of US general production cars made before they start shipping to Canada.

    So I'm guessing that they will start delivering sometime in the second half of November.

    Did you manage to speak to someone who knows what's going on? My email has not been responded to yet. Hopefully the ramp up continues without further problems, and then if we get our cars a less than two weeks after P's begin it won't be as bad. Although I guess it means all that's left of our Sig Premium is "earlier than other Canadians" and Red w/ White leather (which I chose but don't particularly care one way or the other). So much for 1200 NA Sigs first. Tack it onto a long list of communication errors. I just want my car.
