    We all configured based on the estimated 3-6 weeks delivery window. Some folks did receive their VINs within the estimated window. We received or most of us received the email that we would be delayed our deliveries to either June or July. Some people got the June email and have not received their car and others received the July email and received their cars in June.

    Most people agreed on the speculation that the reason we are being delayed is because of Tesla avoiding hitting the 200k car delivered in Q2 so that the $7500 tax credit could possibly go until the end of 2018.

    Fine. Nothing we can do about that as it is all in the past. No more excuses it is the beginning of Q3. I am at 9 weeks and others probably at 11 weeks.

    My Details:
    3/31/16 Reservation
    2/22 invite
    4/30 config
    5/20 July delay Email
    No contact / No VIN
    Non-Owner
    Red/Sport/EAP
    Selected Fremont for Delivery
    All boxes have been checked

    I have called Tesla only twice in the over two years of waiting and they were super nice but had no information to give.

    I configured May 19th. Got Delivery in Marina Del Rey CA June 30th.
    My screen displayed a charge port door error at the delivery center. They corrected it on site in 15 minutes.
    Auto Pilot was working after 20 miles.

    Happy so far!

    That's good to hear. I have never lost faith that the car is awesome. Even if there is an issue Tesla will stand behind their warranty so I have heard. What was your config out of curiosity?

    Still waiting here as well since my April configuration, 1st day reservation. Ncontact, no VIN. I’m really fine waiting in line for what should be a great car. However watching lots of people cut in front of me, not so much.

    LR, Red, 19 wheels

    Yes Tesla achieved some how the impossible!! More time to get to closer customers then further ones!

    Lets speculate! Do they put ISA on assembly line? Do they tried to spread cars to many states to appear succeeding? Do they got such a back up with local delivery they send those VINs away? Do they send all cars away and forget to hold some? Do they got too many cars for repair that there is no more local body store capacity?

    :D

    I'm seeing a lot of people on here that have been waiting a while have Red as their color. Is there anyone who has waited a huge amount of time that DOESN'T have Red as their choice?

    I configured on June 28th, chose Red. No VIN.

    When Edit Design disappeared did it reappear? I know mine went away but then came back. I think it was the day Tesla was changing some pricing to AWD and performance.

    So we know Tesla is cranking out the red color no issues there. They clearly are not following first in line first served mentality. Looks like they are building and shipping then matching color / wheel combo to configurators.

    Darn work thing...

    More likely I think they got a back log and red already in SoCal. From dates this car likely got made before they stop red and white.

    Mine disappeared and reappeared on 6/26, which was the day that I was able to change to Obsidian Black, AWD, Performance, etc. The next day, 6/27, the link disappeared and has not reappeared.
