    I heard somewhere that the rate/size of batches would be accelerating soon.

    You are a regular Sig (non-Sig-special), I presume?! Going by the tally of 221 for SSL on the tally thread...

    That'd be another milestone as we move past the Roadster owners!

    I'm a Used Roadster owner, but was under the impression when I placed my reservation that I was treated as a Roadster owner other than no discount. I'm S#105, so I wonder how the reservation numbers are going to proceed from here out.

    Congrats John. Completed mine this afternoon also.

    P.S. I posted your details on the "Latest Finalize your order" thread.

    Hmm. If they're still under 200 "around September", it seems rather unlikely that they'll deliver 5000 cars this year.

    I'm starting to think the Canadian cars aren't going to be delivered until winter.

    In fairness I don't ever recall anyone saying "deliver" 5,000 cars this year, but "produce/manufacture" 5,000 cars. (Maybe I'm wrong?)
    As ramp up accelerates who knows how many cars will be produced in Nov/Dec. this year but won't be delivered until after the new year.

    True, they do say "produced".

    That said, they may have lots of space at Fremont, but are they really going to let thousands of cars sit around waiting for delivery?

    Hi Doug,

    Based on Tesla's statement on the Facts webpage, "Reservation Holders will be invited to configure their Model S about three months before its production date.", I think this 5 month lead time is probably deliberately overstated. In other words, I think that Tesla will actually deliver the car sooner than the committed contract date.
