Does everyone who ordered RWD before August have a VIN now

    My observation is Tesla has been moving RWD version of the model 3 extremely quick with the increased production. It seems that only folks ordering AWD verions before August are waiting for responses.

    I ordered in July and got VIN quickly and still waited for delivery due to delivery delays. Delivery is the new bottleneck. I hope Elon could ramp up delivery efficiency as well as he did with production.

    That's really speedy delivery. I wish I am as lucky as you are. This really fits my speculation that Tesla is fulfilling RWD demand very well with its increased production.

    Sorry to hear that. You must feel bad after you see ck867 got his so quickly. Do you mind sharing what kind of specs you ordered? Maybe it has something to do with that.

    When I swapped to RWD on my order, I received a VIN within 4 days.

    This is really odd. I can't tell your order has anything too special to make it slow down this much.

    You guys do realize that most of these vehicles were produced in June. They were sitting around waiting for the July 1 date to pass for the tax incentives to expire in Dec 2018

    No I think most of the June inventory were completely gone. I took the delivery early August and my car was manufactured in July.

    My order was last week, and my VIN is 59xxx. I'm picking up just 1 week after ordering. Does the 59xxx mean mine
    was sitting around??

    1-2 months of sitting around isn't a terrible thing. The 5+ month ones are the crazy ones.

    That's a late enough order, and you're in Atlanta, that I wouldn't worry yet. It's good if everyone who ordered June or early July has gotten a VIN.
