    Just saw the following post on reddit, hopefully the author can provide further details. Major bummer.

    "I had a delivery date of February 14-28. Got a call on February 15 from Tesla giving me the bad news: the carrier transporting my car to Boston had an accident and rolled on its side, totaling all cars onboard. So now I have another month+ to wait for my rebuild.
    Anyone else on here have a car lost in that batch?"

    My Tesla got destroyed in transit from the factory : teslamotors

    That really blows! Especially with a sold out factory. It just increases their back orders.

    More sales for tesla, since the carrier (or insurance) will have to pay for those
