    Nothing special about my configuration; red performance, tan interior, CF decor, pano, 21" gray wheels, paint armor. I don't think my config has anything to do with this delay. I was referred to Elon's recent blog as a reason.
    I'm S-1092 with 10/14-28 delivery and no date yet ….waiting….

    He's got the highest Sig sequence number and the highest VIN so far (668). And given that Elon's blog post 5 days ago said they had produced somewhere in the range of 500+ bodies, that means they're at least around 150 bodies per week. And given that 2 of those 5 days were a weekend, I would say we're seeing even more production! Awesome.

    The downside is that as we move out of the signature orders and into general production, we're going to see more "holes" in the numbers. The passionate people posting on TMC and the official forums are generally people that put in their reservations early. So, we'll see a reduction in the number of reported deliveries, even though the actual numbers are going up. That should be interesting for us forum-dwellers, as that will put us in more of a "black boxed" position of having less and less information to go on. But keep the faith and everyone will be getting their cars sooner than later.

    Any VIN yet? Given that the range of dates is coming up yet, I wouldn't sit around waiting. I'd get on the phone and be giving them daily phone calls until you get some more info. Some people have had luck getting the VIN out of the financing office.

    Actually, I don't think you can make that "weekend" (or holiday) assumption/correction. I think they're working 7 days a week, plus maybe some 2nd shift. Someone posted that line workers were told they could have as many overtime hours as they wanted!

    When you received your initial delivery date estimates was that communicated to you via an email, or was it communicated to you verbally after making a call to Tesla?

    Thanks.

    Sweet...maybe a line worker can get enough for a Model S
    my OT is limited to 20/ mo ....and I do that in a week, then take time+1/2 off for when I get my S and need to drive for a couple/few months

    So after prodding my delivery specialist about the status of my car they went out in the factory and sent me some pictures. It currently is in "end of line inspection" and then goes to "burn in testing" and then "final service inspection", according to him. Since I'm doing factory delivery I should be able to pick it up soon once it finishes those final steps. I haven't gotten them to give me a firm date yet but my official delivery window is Oct 4-18th. I'm hoping I can fly up and take delivery this weekend.Name:  S2.jpg

    Nice, DrComputer! Wonder which end of the factory this lineup is at. Anyone have any drones around here?!

    Your car is going to get a bit of a soak over the next 3-4 (wet) days in the Bay Area...
    VIN P 3552 - 60 kWh with Supercharging, Green, Black Roof, Black Leather, Piano Black trim, Tech Package, Active Air Suspension, 19" Wheels, Firmware v5.11, 28,000+ blissful miles since January 2013!

    Remarkable. The Vin Serial # and reservation # are identical!

    They weren't identical. I just updated my signature with the new VIN. My original reservation number was #215.

    I think they only did I because I haven't been the most patient person. I have hounded for the past two weeks for a firm date. I did write a nice "thank you" e-mail response for their effort.... now if they would only give me a date.
