    Forgive me if this already exists...but I haven’t seen one. Since Tesla manufactures in color batches, I thought this would be helpful to us blue hopefuls.

    4/1/16 Reservation
    6/28/18 Configuration Blue, AWD (Non-P), Aero
    7/27/18 Updated to white interior, online account not updated
    Fremont delivery, cash, edit button gone for weeks, all info confirmed
    Sept.-Nove estimated delivery

    As of Aug. 8, no VIN or Delivery Advisor contact

    Just has my blue rwd rejected for paint quality so maybe something is going wrong when they paint blue.

    That's discouraging...hopefully it's a one-off mistake.

    I'm so far back that this probably doesn't help much, but here goes:

    5/17/17 Reservation
    6/27/18 Configuration Blue, AWD (Non-P), Aero, PUP Black, EAP
    CO delivery, cash, edit button gone for weeks, all info confirmed
    Sept - Nov estimated delivery

    Just got mine last week, and I saw another one in GA yesterday. They/we do exist. Hopefully you'll get your soon, although it looks like they're pumping AWD & P.

    Adding a data point:
    3/31/16 - in-line reservation
    7/13/18 - configured P3D+, DBM/White
    7/30/18 - first ISA contact
    8/01/18 - VIN assigned, delivery date scheduled
    8/07/17 - delivered!

    I know I didn't have to wait as long (not sure why), but the Blue/White combo is stunning, and worth the wait.

    I'm trying to not switch to the white interior...I'm a little concerned about your upcoming pictures in the "blue with white interior" thread...

    3/31/2016 online reservation deposit the minute that it opened.
    Located in Cleveland
    6/27/18 Order completed as soon as AWD was opened
    LR, AWD, Blue, Black Interior ,19" Sport Wheels, EAP

    No news from Tesla. Called 8/6/18 to check to make sure I have everything completed and they told me I had a VIN. Nothing displayed on my account page. No encoded VIN before they closed the loop on the hack.

    VIN: 63XXX

    Account still shows Sept-Nov delivery.

    I couldn't get the pictures this morning because the car was outside (gasp!), and covered in condensation... I'll take a break from the office at some point and grab a couple of photos.

    You could just place me on ignore for a day or two, so you don't see the pictures... Or just go for it.

    I'll admit, I may have to stop taking coffee with me in the morning, as it stresses me out a tad to imagine the unfortunate possibilities of an emergency braking or an extreme acceleration incident...

    Ah! Did I promise pictures outside of the Blue/white interior thread?

    Suite! Your performance config pushed you to the head of the line. Can you share some pics?

    This feeds the thesis that they don't really care about updating our order pages. You have a VIN and will likely take delivery soon while your page is unchanged.

    @rich89 What blue VIN did you reject? My friend rejected blue VINs 41xxx and 44xxx over paint defects. He is now scheduled to take delivery of VIN 58xxx and we're really hoping that this higher VIN will be free of paint blisters.
