Because there are tons of crazy people in this world...
Panasonic has been producing 3.1Ah cells, which I believe will be used in the Model S, since April. I believe those cells are the ones needed for the 300-mile pack, although I could be mistaken.
See here: Panasonic's New Lithium-Ion Battery Plant to Start Mass Production Next Month.
Are they now saying the 300 mile pack will be available on launch? A few months ago when they were sticking to their fall 2011 launch date, I was told it probably wouldn't happen. Now that Signature series cars probably won't happen until summer 2012, maybe the 300 mile pack will be an option.
If we assume 250 signature reservations + 3 "P" reservations in July that is ~ 2600 reservations so far.
