    One month until somebody gets one...then the even more painful next 3 months knowing that people are getting them while I continue to wait!

    I honestly don't mind the wait from the first deliveries until I get mine. We're talking a matter of 4 months. I can't wait to hear people's take on the car with actual hands-on experience. And I also can't wait to read the first several reviews of the car.

    So who will get the first car? Will it be Jurvi or Elon? Will they be delivering Signature cars or will it be a rumored Founders' series?

    I'm guessing Founders on that day, then more over the next week. Exciting times (and time to update the countdown)

    The blog post notes that they will be posting info and video on the manufacturing process every tuesday from now until the first S deliveries. That should prove to be pretty interesting material.

    I'm guessing Jurvi (don't know who that is though) since I know Elon has said before he wasn't #1. Effectively though, other than lowest VIN, the first few are all getting it at once since the press release says:

    It will be me when I rip open that Matchbox packaging right in Toys-r-Us...LOL. On a serious note I'm curious as well.

    It wouldn't be much of an event if Elon turns around and hands the keys to himself. It's a much more "event" feel if Elon hands the first Model S key to someone else (Jurvetson) and that person drives away. Though I wouldn't doubt that Elon gets his in the first couple days. Or then again he might already have a Beta model that he's "testing."

    Although I assume it will be Founders, would be cool if Founders already got theirs and this will be an event for the first REAL customers (likely SSL people).

    I don't know. I'm on the other side. It wouldn't exactly be very ceremonious if they simply let the founders get theirs on that event. I feel as if they wouldn't have used the word "customer" if they simply meant founders. Perhaps they've contacted the first dozen or so SSL reservation holders and will have a few of them at the event to receive their Model S. We already know some actual customers will get their Model S in June, so why hold an event if you're not going to include actual customers? Care to place a wager? ;)

    I am hearing (or maybe wishing :) that all Sig reservation holders will get the invite with the Top 10 (in CA and not Tesla employees or family members) receiving their vehicles on the spot.
