    The guy at Tesla told me a lot of people are deferring for the smaller battery so the people at the back of the line are jumping to the front because those smaller packs arent in production yet.

    I don't know they are ramping up production pretty fast! 200 cars/week! I'm rooting for you! Hoped you get your email soon! Maybe a couple of months but don't quote me.

    Black Performance Interior
    Obeche Gloss Wood
    Tech Package
    Studio Sound
    21" Silver
    Twin Chargers
    Parcel Shelf
    Carbon Fiber Spoiler

    Delivery: Feb-March But hoping for delivery on my Birthday Jan18

    It's an exciting and happy time but also bittersweet. My, Dad died this year tragically he was hit by a car on his bicycle, he wasn't only my dad but my best friend too. We did a lot of things together such as remote control cars and go karts. He was 68 but really a big kid at heart. We enjoyed talking about tech stuff and cars. I wish he was here to enjoy this with me. But I know he's looking down on me smiling, laughing that I'm spending this much money on a car. He would've told me to wait until they come down in price but I guess thats the difference between me and my Dad. Lol Can't wait to be part of Tesla Model S Club! I'm in San Francisco so when I get my car if any other Model s owners want to get together and share their Tesla stories that would be fun!

    Read in another thread that you're (only) 32. Hope your Dad had you late(r) in life otherwise he died way too young?

    Sorry for your loss.

    My Dad taught me to drive. Like a maniac. (But he was very hands off.) One major lesson he taught me was "How would you like to meet yourself coming 'round the corner?"

    The second email states that in order to enjoy current Tesla pricing, we have to finalize by Dec 31, 2012. Does that mean 11:59 PM PCT Dec 30, 2012 or 11:59 PM PCT Dec 31, 2012?

    Double that, I think. The design limit for 1 line, one shift is ~400/wk, but currently handled by 2 shifts, not yet at full efficiency.

    The usual interpretation of such a statement would be 23:59 PST Dec 31, 2012 -- in other words, timestamped in 2012.

    Do they have 2 shifts running now? If one shift can handle 400/wk at max efficiency then theoretically they can pump out 800/week eventually? Do they plan on stopping the second shift?

    Yes
    Yes (actually, 3 shifts would be 1200/wk).
    No. Elon's goal (and commitment) was to be at the 20K/yr minimum by Y/E, fully expecting to ramp to at least 30K ASAP (also to 30% gross margin). The reservations/orders are still "ramping", with marketing, public exposure, EU demos and Sig deliveries, stores, deployed nation-wide SuperCharging, and overt marketing still to contribute. TM is attempting to catch up to demand, but at the same time has many tools and weapons to make sure demand is way ahead of production! (I bet GB has a little side bet with the production guys that he can keep orders coming in faster than they can produce.)

    Curious for those who have just reserved in the higher numbers like 15,000+ if they are not able to configure before the end of the year will they still have the same 2012 prices confirmed?
