    I wonder if we can change our orders to AWD. I have a VIN assigned but no deliver date yet? I can imagine that a lot of the Ontairo orders may try and switch

    Good luck to the Canadians. There's a chance, but probably better if you don't already have a VIN. I don't suppose they ever said anything about a heated steering wheel?

    Per Elon on twitter, orders for dual motor and performance versions will start next week with production starting in July.

    Next year for air suspension? /cries/

    I need to get a test drive before I order, I need to see if the car will get into my driveway without scraping. My Prius scrapes if I'm not careful pulling into or out of the driveway.

    Tesla will enable orders end of next week for dual motor AWD & performance. Starting production of those in July. Air suspension prob next year.
    11:40 AM - 11 May 2018

    Hope that if someone has not been assigned a VIN yet and can wait for a month more, they would be able to go in and EDIT their order. Suddenly, I DONT want a VIN.

    Air suspension next year apparently... Sad for no hints on pricing.

    I'm glad to see that air suspension is not a required bundle for AWD.

    Yes! A little annoyed that there is still no white interior. Can't wait to hear details on the performance version. I wonder how they're going to prioritize reservations? The wait is almost over!

    Can't wait to see specs/pricing on the AWD and Performance models. My wallet is terrified.

    My guess is no. Just because they open orders for dual motors, it will not be open to everyone. Invites for the new configuration will probably match the invites for First Production - employees first, previous owners second, and so on.

    Need to be invited to configure first since I am on a deadline before manufacturing opens itself up to more options and further delays my car....

    Hmm, good thing I've been holding off on configuring. Although since I just got my invite on 4/18, I assume even if I do place order right away, I will be behind everyone else who has been holding off too....
