    E-mail from Tesla Product Specialist:

    Thanks for your note. Based on your date of reservation and reservation sequence number, you can expect to take delivery of your Model S during October/November. As we get closer (and have a better ideo of the ramp-up time frame) we'll be able to provide much more exact estimates.

    When called and got a similar answer, however, when i mentioned that I was within 30 days I got transferred and got another estimate. I would not suggest calling though if you aren't within 30 days of your estimated delivery.

Please keep commentary to a minimum. Another option would be for TMC to post a banner on the Model S page with last delivery (why not throw in the finalize data too!)
    Can we separate this thread into two. I believe from reading the above quote that this thread was intended to record Actual not Estimated deliveries. It would be nice to have a separate thread for Estimated deliveries. For actual deliveries via Tesla's blog we can now solidly say that the number of cars is "...29 that are either already in the hands of their new owners or on their way via Tesla Personal Delivery."

    You are correct this thread was intended to be more data-based ... but alas, it is already 5 pages long ... any news from TMC on a numerical banner with latest delivery data ???


    Too many other threads already exist for delivery discussions/estimates:

    Latest date

    Last Confirmed Delivery Date

    @joefee - The multiplicity of threads is a symptom of (hopefully near-term) impatience.

    If mods decide to restructure the threads on reservations, confirmations, configurations/finalizations, ETAs, and actual deliveries, I'd recommend that doing so wait until we have at least 2 SSL owners with pictures of them with their keys to minimize risk of potentially starting yet another set of "almost delivered" threads.

    Hi Brian,

    I sent a facebook message to Jason McCabe Calacanis requesting that he post here when his Model S "VIN #00000000001" is delivered. Not surprisingly I haven't received a response, but if he doesn't post here its likely he will post on his facebook page so we'll have a data point. I'm guessing that it is already awaiting Elon's inspection.

    Larry

    Mod note - Once deliveries begin in earnest, we'll sort posts into proper threads. But if I do it now, I'll just have to do it again in another week. This is a persistent group.

    TEG saw Founders #28 in Santa Clara:

    Random Model S sightings

    Didn't someone say there are 30 Founders cars? Then Special Sig #1 must come very soon...
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...
