    What does this mean? That my car will be ready for pickup between these dates? Suppose to to have delivery between feb-march but sooner is fine with me! Yayyy! Someone correct me if im wrong. If I'm right I would think they would have no problem of hitting their 5k goal by the end of the year. Sounds like theyre really ramping up.

    Tesla Grin!

    I signed my paperwork 5 days ago and got the email last night that my car would be delivered to Kansas City between 12/15/12 and 12/31/12. That's a 9-25 day window between signing the contract and getting the car...I'm shocked! Doesn't give me much time to get my ducks in a row (electrician, financing, etc.). I thought I'd have until late February or early March. I called to confirm. They are flying through their orders now...freaking out (not complaining)!

    It could be there are a number of orders for items that won't be in production until next year (multi-coat red, no air suspension, 40 or 60 KWhr batteries).

    I got my signed paperwork back today, with a delivery window of Feb-Mar, but wouldn't mind getting it sooner...

    I suspect that once they are in full production with all 3 batteries, that most of the orders will be for the 40 and 60 - and not the 85s.

    I wonder if even TM has a good grip on how it's going to shake out in the long term. Exposure of the market to actual cars and 'trending' in word-of-mouth may determine how that goes.
