The prices on the inventory cars reflect the price increases - with or without FSD. If your SA can get them to “grandfather” you, great. It’s been done, but Tesla is pricing them at current prices.

My MSRP remained the same. I just had the SA assign the VIN to me. All that matters is the order RN# date - they will grandfather that MSRP if you have an older order date.

Anyone else think it’s not a coincidence that Tesla updates EDDs to mid July/August the same day they then dump a bunch of inventory cars on the market that have a price increase of $1,000? Come on. NFW it’s a coincidence. They’re sly.
I was thinking the same thing. I would not put it past them

I wonder how long the extended dates will stay?

If you wait for your SA, that makes sense. At 9:00pm EDT, my SA isn’t working and when they did the last inventory dump Tuesday, 124 cars went to 30 in 12 hours…waiting means you may lose the car.

I see a bunch of demo models were just released. However the price on them seems to be higher than the price on the Model Y that I ordered. And these seem to have about 3000 miles on them. Why is this?
Yep, I noticed that too.

I have a pretty good SA and had reached out to him regarding finding a match sooner. He couldn’t find an exact match, quite different than the one we ordered actually, but at least he tried.

We ordered all basic white, black interiors, 19”, with tow hitch.

SA came back with red, 20” wheels, and no tow hitch. However, it was available AT THE SC and brand new. It also had a paint scratch and most likely rejected recently. Interesting part was the SA said I only had 5 minutes to decide before the car gets auto-matched to someone else. We passed on the car.

Later, SA reached out with a demo car but it was even more expensive than the previous new red one, AND the demo car had 3k miles. At that mileage I don’t think you can register or title it as new anymore and wouldn’t qualify for any tax rebates (if they were available).

Yeah, that I understand and it's really sucks the way Tesla does this, but the SA I spoke with said anyone can assign you the VIN.

The store that I ordered from closes at 9PM PST. My SA wasn't working, so the new SA assigned the VIN to me.

My SA said that if you find the exact configuration in inventory, they will honor the price you have locked in but if the configuration is different, you will be charged the new price.

Yeah I got the impression when talking to my SA today that as long as the config is identical to you current order, they can keep the grandfathered price. But if there’s anything different, including removing FSD, then you have to pay the new price.

Are you saying you didn’t actually “buy” the car with the $100 order fee but called your SA and had them assign that VIN to your original order? If so, you were lucky it wasn’t bought before you reached your SA. What about transport charges?

They do not waive transport charges. You pay that 100% if there are any.

Demo cars will (normally) still be considered new, as you will be the first person the cars been sold to and registered under. That would make you eligible for tax credits. Unfortunately some dealers stupidly register their demo units and it jacks everything up for all involved.

Tomorrow will mark one entire week since I received my VIN assignment. Sadly, absolutely no news about final payment or delivery scheduling as of yet.

It’s so frustrating.

I talked to someone at my SC who said the VINs are assigned as soon as the cars are built and that it can take time for the cars to actually be shipped to your local SC.

I see.

Also looked it up and, in California, a car is still considered new as long as it has under 7,500 miles on the odometer (and hasn't been registered obviously).
