I wanted the $7,500 discount with 10,000 miles of free supercharge so on 12/23/22 I ordered a Midnight Silver Metallic Model Y Performance with Enhanced Autopilot, black interior, no tow hitch. It's now 4:30pm here in Los Angeles on 12/31/22 and I have not received a VIN or any indication to suggest delivery will happen today. Details: purchase, not leased; financing was approved immediately on 12/23/22; no trade in; "Est. delivery: Dec 2020" has been displaying on the app ever since the order was placed; I did complete all the pre-delivery tasks on the app on 12/23/22; RN118233322; the Mobile Connector order was also placed 12/23/22 and delivery is scheduled on 1/3/23 according to the tracking number. I've spent the entire day 1) researching delivery wait times, 2) watching Twitter feed updates from Tesla and Elon (he's making pizza), and 3) reviewing the 2023 tax credit that apparently won't be given to me based on my income... Sigh. Not a great day. It's just so frustrating to see all the drone footage of hundreds of finished Teslas at the Fremont factory and the YouTube videos of people enjoying themselves in Full Self Driving mode. I am tempted to cancel the order completely, sell my Tesla shares at a significant loss, and start drinking.
