    I saw the car I wanted in inventory on the Tesla website. Website says "Fremont - Direct Delivery." I know this is a long shot, but if I pay the $100 online, any chance I can pick the car up today in Fremont if I pay for it 100% in person after the $100 deposit? It's a little past 3pm Pacific time right now.

    Maybe call Tesla first to see what they say. You have a very very small chance. Better than lottery but less than flipping a coin.

    It’s only a 100 bucks. Just book it and then head on over.

    I am too late in answering this... but I bought an inventory car on 12/30 at 9pm and took delivery less than 24 hours later. This is after I waited 7 weeks for an SR+ that wasn’t gonna come by EOY, so I took a LR AWD instead. I purchased it on the site instead of asking my SA to change my existing order cuz I was afraid it would get taken.

    @Matt L totally happy ^^ very glad I went for the LR AWD, cuz who knows when they SR+ would come... and I think going LR AWD was a good investment in the long run. After they buffed out what they could in the paint, I’m left with maybe two or three minor things but I don’t think it’s worth repainting panels just for that, might just make things worse. Haha.

    Worse is a possibility with pearl colors. They are hard to match and there are up to 3 layers to get right.

    Saw pics of the really long lines and decided not to go for it, especially not being sure that the car would even be available. I regret it a little since I heard stories of being offered alternates to folks in line.
