    Just submitted my cancellation request..

    Too many delays, moving on, still believe in Tesla and even more in Elon (Falcon Heavy launch was one of the most amazing things I ever seen).

    Good luck to all you guys and hope to come back another time as an owner!

    understandable decision, I wish you the best and hopefully your next car will still be an EV, Tesla or not!

    Didn't you declare you were cancelling last year? Was this a new reservation?

    So you cancelled last year, saying you were going to the AG or something. And then you made another reservation? Why, if you were so upset?

    Hey! It’s not my credibility that has hit zero, it’s Elon Madoff....

    Likely 48 hours away from being asked to configure. Doh!

    My early morning day 1 Seattle reservation for SR was just pushed back from early 2018 to late 2018.

    I’m beyond angry, and if sleeping on it doesn’t convince me to stay I will cancel tomorrow morning and buy an ICE SUV instead (wife’s preference).

    These delays are unacceptable for the mass market.

    Curious, if you picked LR, what does that do for your timing? It seems SR for everybody is being pushed to late 2018.

    It’s plain dishonest. No wonder Elon cannot keep staff. Plus the timing, Hey everyone look at the shiny rocket in the sky....while I delay your delivery 3 quarters or more.

    Mmmm, yet you seem to be deliberately ignoring my question. If you cancelled your reservation last year, saying you were going to the AG ... did you make another reservation? And why? You were so upset the last time.

    As somebody else who is waiting for the SR, and has same timing as you, I share in your frustration. I have the distinct feeling that those of us who want SR cars are in for more heartache. My LR timing went from Dec-Feb to March-May. Patience isn't an issue, but I have to admit, my excitement with this company and car is feeling bruised.

    Strangely it keeps switching my preference from SR to Dual Motor every time I visit the estimation page. Not sure what that is about.

    This is not fair. What if it was to blow up?

    I'm sorry to hear .. I can only share that after waiting multiple years for my Model X, I was feeling somewhat the same. But once it was in my driveway, that excitement was back. And it's never left.

    If you keep your reservation, I hope the same for you. :)

    I’m not cancelling but I’m beyond frustrated. I listened to the conference call and I again hear Elon throw out time frames which are entirely unrealistic. For example be talked about coast to coast self driving in 3-6 months with simultaneous release to customers. Yeah, right. I appreciate his optimism and drive but he needs a lesson in the basic business principle under promise, over deliver. My window is now May-July but if you look at the ramp I have a gut feeling I won’t see it until the end of the year.
