    Received this from Delivery Specialist today ....
    "As for the production timing we have just received an update from our Fremont Factory that your Model S vehicle production will be adjusted by a few weeks. We have learned that due to our recent option adjustment across both vehicle lines, we will need to change our planned production schedule, in an effort to both simplify and optimize our vehicle production. As a result, your delivery window will be adjusted to late November-December. I hope this helps. " Looked on MyTesla - it now actually says December /January 2017 Delivery now

    Thanks

    Maybe they are retooling the production line for new upgrades? ;)

    The information displayed on My Tesla page is typically less accurate than information communicated by DS. It looks like his/her email included late November-December delivery window, which is consistent with the original delivery window. I would say that this is accurate information, not the later delivery window on My Tesla page. I would send email to DS asking for clarification.

    Confirmed 9/19 on the same vehicle (P100D) in a similar location (Northern California) originally had October - Early November and then they adjusted to November - Early December (with DS giving me Nov 27 as an estimated delivery) about a week and a half ago. You confirmed about 2 weeks after me so the timing would add up. I think they are just going from oldest to newest and bumping back everyone a month for whatever is going on (high demand, new hardware, international backlog, etc)

    That's definitely interesting. I know there were changes made to the X options - making air suspension standard and eliminating the X60 - but what option adjustments have been made to the S? They deleted a couple paint colors but that would not push orders out.

    All signs point to AP 2.0. Heavy international orders are probably also contributing.
