    I have just noticed this AM that on the Design Studio, the DELIVERY DATE is now February. Just 5 days ago it changed from LATE DECEMBER to JANUARY.
    I wonder if the Model S production line will soon be switching over the European / Australian / Far East RHD cars or what?

    Wonder if there will be a plant shutdown this year just like they did right after the Holidays last year?

    Or is the delivery message taking into account my East Coast location and the slower pace of transportation in the Winter??

    Thoughts... Rumors... Ideas... Wild Ass Guesses?

    Yesterday it said Late December for me. Today - Feb. I think they will prioritize Model X for a while. Contrary to popular belief, there is no production line switch for EU or HK/AU cars - they are all built interchangeably on the same line with NA cars.

    This is my guess as well: MX.

    Isn't the MX using a different production line?

    Nope. While there are different body lines and such, the final assembly line includes both the S and the X.
