    Has anyone else had an email similar to this, guess it will still be 2018 before I get behind the wheel/spaceship control??


    We thank you for your recent interest in the Tesla Model 3 and we are very pleased to inform that you have been selected as one of the first customers in the United Kingdom to receive your vehicle.
    We will be in touch shortly to discuss production slots, specifications and open day dates for our production facility, located in Fremont, CA.
    This is a very exciting time for Tesla and we thank you for your support.
    Yours Sincerely,
    Tesla Customer Services.

    That's it I'm afraid other than addressing me by my name and below was the tesla logo. This came through on April 6th which will be 5 days after I initially received the deposit order confirmation email.

    I'd be careful about clicking any links in the Email. Make sure you mouse-over the link first and make sure it doesn't point to some funky URL shortener.

    The MailFrom can be spoofed. Are there any links in the Email? If so, what domain do they start with?

    Got to agree with you. The model 3 is a long way off yet, doubt anyone will be seeing an email like this for at least a year, for us in the UK probably at least 2 years

    According to the confirmation email and PDF that was attached, I believe delivery starts on the west coast and then moves east. After that, it hits the European and Asian markets. After that it hits the markets where people are driving on the wrong side of the car on the wrong side of the road. Based on this, I would be suspicious of that email you received considering you are in a wrong side of the road country.

    It's certainly strange and possibly to be taken with a pinch of salt. Ordered in store on 31st March in the UK and not had anything like this.

    I hope you fellow Brits have your reservations listed on Model3Tracker.info

    The grammar and structure of that message, assuming you copied it word for word, is atrocious and would never have made it past any legitimate company's marketing/communications team.

    This makes it seem that production of the Model 3 is imminent (let alone the right-hand drive version), which obviously isn't the case.

    Then again, it seems Tesla may have conquered time travel, so maybe production is coming sooner than any of us realize?

    Pretty much a 100% guarantee that this is not legit. Would definitely not follow any embedded links, and recommend you don't use email with automatic HTML rendering.

    Tanflado (OP) just joined today and put this up so there's multiple layers of spamming available here if you know what I mean.
