    When I ordered my P85 earlier in the year I was assigned a VIN and knew my rough delivery date within 48 hours. Almost a week later since the P85D order, no VIN, no delivery date other then "December".

    Any "D" order owners been assigned VIN or delivery dates yet?

    Did you "confirm" the order?

    We are in the first wave of S85's for February, and no VIN, but I do not really expect one until late January, given the production delay.

    I think it is just a case of Tesla being, once again, overwhelmed. From what I have heard from various sources, demand for the "D", especially P85D, is huge. One guy in the ordering pipeline I talked to said on the weekend that it had been a "very intense" 48 hours!

    Yes, confirmed the order 10/10, same day we placed the order.

    I did hear from our sales person that Tesla received over 1000 orders for the P85D that day, so you may be correct. "Overwhelmed" might be the word.

    it makes you wonder why Wall St is so down on Tesla/Musk for the announcement last week.

    fact is the Model X is delayed. so instead of just resting on its laurels, Musk decided to only produce the best performing car in the world, resulting in significant buzz and demand.

    I only imagined as much, which is why I've been backing up the truck and loading up on TSLA shares and options during this selloff. Wall street and automotive pundits have so misguaged this launch it's not even funny. But that's a discussion for another thread.

    Use this as a gauge if you like. I was scheduled for 12/14 delivery date and received VIN on original order on 10/13 (roughly 60 days out). In the meantime, I changed my order, so I'm now slated for Late January delivery. I expect VIN will be assigned some time after Thanksgiving or so.

    If it is 60 days out, that suggests that people should start getting VIN's very soon, as 60 days from now is already December 15.

    Alternative: They are not actually going to deliver in December.

    Hoping it's the first choice.

    Pretty sure if you look at the "what to expect" part of the Tesla web site, it will tell you VINs get assigned about 5 weeks prior to construction. We are roughly 6 weeks from December 1st, so (at least) 1 week until the first VINs assigned.

    That assumes they actually start production of customer cars on Dec 1.

    Thanks. When is your delivery date? Looks like Tesla is still on track (perhaps slightly ahead) of meeting the 2014 production goal.

    Think I need to make T-shirt - - "GOT VIN?" :)

    Got mine 63451 - does that really mean they will have 64,000 cars on the road by end of this year??
