    I've got a 70D coming in May and have been counting down the weeks. Wondering who else is in the same boat...

    Tell me about it! I ordered my last car in July 2013...and it did not arrive until August 2014. Naturally, when I placed the order for the 70D, I was very excited at the thought of "only" waiting several weeks. But, as it turns out, the pain is equally real--the waiting time is always the same because it's always "too long." :)

    Not me--intentionally put off delivery until June to allow existing lease to expire.

    My "My Tesla" account changed from Production Queue to In Production yesterday but I did not receive email from Tesla to that effect until today.

    So logging on every few hours like me may get you good news a few hours sooner than just watching your inbox. :)

    @JPP - I'm totally with you. We're testdriving the 70D today. If it's fast enough (listen to me - ha!) then I'll avoid getting behind the wheel of the 85D.

    @ Patrick W - you live in Utah and opted for the 85? I'm guessing the range was too small to get the 70D and the additional $5k to get the 85D was too much in your opinion?

    We're also paying off the 2011 Volt today, but my son doesn't turn 16 until December! I've got to be patient and wait. I'm thinking a Thanksgiving delivery would be nice to beat the Christmas (and Q4) rush . . .

    Mentioned this in a different thread, but, my car was listed for a June delivery when I purchased it. Now, it is listed as a late May delivery. I know this can move and shift, but, I do like its initial move and shift!

    Ordered and confirmed a 70D on April 14th. Ordered it at a location in Georgia right after the government got rid of the 150 limit on "direct sales". Got my VIN on the 15th (847XX) but according to the guy I'm working with at the showroom it's not slated to enter production until May 11th, and my estimated delivery date is June 12th. Kinda wish I was still in the Late May boat but I'm guessing since my 70D isn't loaded, it didn't get priority to go into production on May 4th.

    It's pretty much a stock 70D. I only added Autopilot, the Pano Roof, and Titanium Metallic paint.

    Excited to join the cult, though! Trading up from a 2004 Mustang Convertible so it's definitely a change.

    Me too. I'm was scheduled for late may but had to push it back to give me more time to try to sell my current car privately.
