I hear you, and I am in the same boat as you. Have courage my friend. But I am also bracing for more insanity from Tesla because this is not over until I drive the car out of the SC lot.Mid June 2021 order here. I too, was getting very excited and anxious when i was told my car was being built in August. Cut to the chase Here. After at least 14 status changes, date ranges from 20 to 31 days, and many comments by various Tesla SA’s and the like, and several times having the current date be within the EDD window they gave me, I am now in the Jan/Feb window with absolutely no car in sight. Yes, I ordered when it was ONLY 79k and it appears that me being one of the first adopters after seeing all the questionable reviews about the product, am being penalized on so many levels. I can have pretty much any other car I see based on my agreed to outlay to Tesla totalling just north of 87k including taxes — with NO incentives at all — but I choose to still want this car. I believe in Tesla and I’ve driven them (never owned one) and I absolutely love the tech. I will say however that my life has been one screen refresh after refresh along with false hope coming from texts, phone calls, and the like. I have so much wasted time waiting and being baited by a company with no real loyalty or honesty to their patrons. Why oh why do i continue? Because I’ve seen the competition. They all suck, that or they are receiving “car of the year” awards for product that DOESN’T EXIST yet! What kind of lunacy we have on all fronts. People slamming Tesla for what it isn’t and other car manufacturers getting rave reviews for not having anything out on the street yet. The crazy year of 2021 continues and will be over with in another day. What will make 2022 any different? Nothing my friends, nothing. Once again, approaching 7 months since ordering and nothing that I have learned from anyone at Tesla since day 1 was of any help. Nothing.
If it is any consolation, 2022 is pronounced as 2020 too!
