Cory Johnson (Bloomberg) Nonsense Tesla Urged Customers to Order to Make Q1 Targets: Video - Bloomberg About 1:00 in:"He orders it in December... receives it in March... here's why it's really important. Tesla ended 2012 with 15'000 orders in hand. 15'000 people waiting to get cars. We know that they sold 4750 cars in the quarters. So that should mean that there should ... still be 10250 people waiting for cars. And here, we got a guy, who ordered in December, got it in March. Did he jump to the front of the line? Or did they get, with 4750 cars delivered, do they in fact have a lot of deferments? Do they have a lot of cancellations? I talked to Tesla saying 'what's up, the numbers just don't add up, unless, you've had 10'000 cancellations' they said 'well, they're not all cancellations, there are also people that were told well maybe you can have the car now, but maybe deferred it'... but it really suggests there was a surge in cancellations and deferments. Customers were offered cars, but said 'we don't want it', or 'we don't want it now'. But the numbers clearly say that customers did not want as many cars now as they ordered at the end of Decembers.". Now, as everyone on the thread who are still waiting for a car after a year (or more) knows, yeah, that guy jumped the line, likely because he ordered a higher-end Model. Why didn't Tesla PR set Johnson straight on this? Frustrating.
