    I know I am being a bit impatient, but I am traveling outside of US next week for a month. I bought an inventory model in VA and am having it delivered to GA. The Sales and Delivery Advisors both said I should get it around 10 days from the purchase date (April 19th). I already traded in my car early, and my delivery advisor just emailed me today saying it's still in VA waiting for transportation. The delivery advisor said he would try to expedite the process after hearing my travel plans, so there's that.

    Is this normal? Does inventory model usually take more than the estimated 14 days to deliver?

    As many of you were when you first ordered, I'm really excited and cannot wait to start driving.

    I bought a Model S, showroom car, took 12 days to ship from Nashville, Tenn. To Kansas City, Mo. then 2 days at the SC, like you the wait was killing me, but so much worth the wait. I guess Tesla just doesn't let anyone ship there cars, congrats!! have fun, your going to love it.

    @75Shappyt Yup, my Delivery Advisor said the car itself actually has been ready to go since last Wednesday. It's just a matter of trying to schedule the transport truck itself. And that's what is testing my patience lol.

    Our first Tesla, a Model S, was purchased via Tesla store in MA. We took a flight to West Palm Beach (from Manchester,NH) and had a wonderful drive home.

    Model X (inventory - showroom) eight months later was on the floor in MA. Delivered to our NH home (avoiding MA sales tax).

    If your schedule allows time, explore tax consequences. You may find it quicker (and a lot more fun) to go get your X.

    @HeloCaptain The drive is about 11 hours including supercharging in between, but with work and flight ticket prices, I would prefer the delivery. Otherwise, yes, I would have loved to go pick it up and have a nice quiet road trip.

    Ordered inventory MX early Nov last year. Initially it said 10 to 14 days. Ended up over 30 days and got it middle of December.

    Lol. I got you all beat. Paid in full for inventory MX 12/24/2016 and it was delivered 3/2/17. Tesla ended up buying car back for multiple defects on 2/28/2018. Good luck.

    Ours was mysteriously "awaiting transport scheduling" for over a week extra until I said "Transports are easy to schedule, if you cannot do it, allow me to schedule it, or give me my money back" ... then they finally admitted that the car had some damage and they were trying to get it fixed before sending the car over.

    I ended up asking for photos of the damage, declaring it "can be fixed later" and then they shipped the car VERY QUICKLY to us. We took it back in a month later once parts arrived and then the repairs were done in about six weeks. They gave us a loaner X in the meantime, which was just OK (no app access, top speed of 85mph on our roads with 80mph limits - not great) but much appreciated. We were really happy to finally get our car back and pristine.

    We were coming out of another lease so having their 14 days suddenly become 30-45-60 days wasn't going to work for us...
