    I have been patiently waiting for my vin, keeping my fingers crossed hoping that it might be the magic 50K car. I was assigned my vin today 49799. So close! Oh well, at least Tesla and everyone associated can celebrate the fact that the 50K car will be here soon.

    I too had been wondering if I might get 50,000. I'm told I might get my VIN in the next week, but I'm guessing I'll be just a little bit over 50k.

    Haha! Same with me when I was waiting for my VIN last year, I had my fingers crossed for 25000 but I got 25610 :)

    Pretty cool that we are now exactly 8 months later and there are 25000 more cars. Averaging 3125 cars per month and 721 cars per week since mid November (just for fun, I know its ramping up every weeks).

    Just mentioned in the other thread, it looks like I'll be in the 50,000 VIN neighborhood too......

    But, no tears lost if I'm not as long as I get my VIN!!

    Looks like 50,000 has come and gone. 50247 was just posted in the order and delivery tracking thread.

    I think people only see their VIN after their DS has updated their info, so perhaps 50k just has a lazy DS. :)

    Interesting. I just assumed (and you know what happens when you assume) that the Tesla computers would generate and update the VIN without the intervention of the DS.

    That was just from another post I read, so take it for what it's worth. But, given the variation on when people see them (some don't even see them until their car is almost in production) I'm inclined to think manual intervention is involved, otherwise it would be more consistent.

    Just noticed I got my vin today .. as everyone else was hoping for 50,000 but I missed by 93 with 49907. Just glad I finally got it.

    With the quarterly results coming out this coming thursday, I expect another big batch of vin#s to be assigned Monday or Tuesday. Those will be for cars that might still make it for US delivery by end of Q3. vin numbers are given out right about 45-50 days prior to US delivery. It is really hard to determine how much Chinese orders are impacting US delivery windows. Slightly, but not a whole lot. Places like Australia, Hong kong and japan keep getting pushed back, based on some posts around here. Those markets are still very young and need more service centers built and people trained, let alone superchargers installed. A lot of people in Hong Kong and Australia have Vin numbers but no idea on delivery windows.
