    I see. Thanks! I'm none the wiser regarding this sequencing business so, I'll just sit tight and wait for my delivery notification If I don't hear by late November, would have to ask PenFed to extend the window for my approved loan.

I have been told by numerous people that it's Sigs first, the Rs, and then Ps. Some confusion might be due to the fact that Rs and Ps are grouped together under the nomenclature of "general production". This is useful for factory configuration, not delivery order.
    Just had a convo with my delivery specialist a little while after George's post. He acknowledged the poor communication, couldn't say if the Sig delays would mean a delay for my R delivery, and specifically said that the R reservations WILL be delivered before the Ps.

    He said that VIN #s are only available ~2 days before the car enters production, and thus could not explain the Rs and Ps who have been given their VINs.

    Just hope to take delivery before snow flies...

    I just had a nice chat with my delivery specialist as well and she was very clear that the Rs and Ps are all lumped together as GPs and that they will be built sequentially from number 1 on.
    She said that the numbers are NOT reset at the end of the Rs and that they are intermingled. The Rs have no build preference over the Ps. This is the second time I have been told this now by a Tesla rep.

    I think from these two posts that we take the message that "we just don't know" if the R's and P's are intermingled or not. And frankly, does it really matter? I would think by the time they are building those that we're only talking about a couple of weeks at most either way depending on the ordering.

    Well, that is interesting. I'm pretty sure that my original P number changed to a lower R number once I switched from P to R.

    Your specialist is certainly wrong. How else would you explain my R number when the same day someone got a P number that was close to or above 2000?

    sublimaze1, Thanks for the thread. I'm P214, so not long after you I hope. I've taken the attitude that my Model S will get here when it gets here, especially with all that the Signature Editions people (both U.S. and Canada) are going thru. But it is still nice to see a light at the end of the tunnel, and have a rough idea of when I might be seeing my Model S for the first time.

    Well, we'll certainly know soon enough how this plays out. The first time I was told Rs and Ps are all part of the GP build with no build priority for Rs (other than their numbers) was from an Ownership Experience Rep at HQ and the second time was from my Delivery Specialist on the East Coast. It really is too bad that we just can't get consistent and proactive information about this stuff from them.

    Keep in mind George B is the one who invented the Apple "Genius"... I have not met one that actually was. Some company-wide (or at least "specialist"-wide) talking points are in order. A mass email to employees with FAQ's would be useful. Or a real, updated, official FAQ for issues like these.

    I'm not sure how we'll know soon enough, considering your parenthetical "other than the numbers". Let's say a bunch of Ps get delivered before my R140. We don't learn anything. Unless 2,000 Ps get delivered before my R140, I got a big benefit from my R number. When I made my reservation, I had a choice of just taking a normal production number, which was around P2000, or getting the sponsorship of my Roadster-owning friend, and getting R140. Your "other than their numbers" doesn't really fit in.
