That being the case, having it on a truck on it's way from the factory doesn't cut it.

    Well, TMC, am I missing something?
    That appears to be the common wisdom, but if you look at the IRS instructions for the credit, what it actually says is:

    "The vehicle must be acquired for use or lease and not for resale. Additionally, the original use of the vehicle must commence with the taxpayer and the vehicle must be used predominantly in the United States. For purposes of the 30D credit, a vehicle is not considered acquired prior to the time when title to the vehicle passes to the taxpayer under state law."

    Basically what counts is how your individual state determines when you take title. In California, that date is the date in which Tesla mails the forms to the DMV.

    After receiving the "December Delivery is Available" email I immediately replied with "Yes, 2012 please." Just now when I logged into "My Tesla" the DELIVERY button lit up for me and I filled out my info. The estimate says Dec 21 to Jan 4.

    I guess next step is a VIN and a call from my delivery specialist? Exciting times.

    Thanks for the heads up. After reading your message, I reloaded teslamotors.com and I had the delivery button myself!

    "Delivery" button was there for me, range was Dec. 15 - Dec. 31.

    Fingers crossed that it arrives before Dec. 22. My pig-headed relatives will be visiting that weekend, and they're totally against electric vehicles (a wide and expensive collection of gas-guzzling sports cars/hummers). I would love nothing more than to take them for test drives...

    Oh, and I also just lost $5 to a coworker.
