Looks like you have your delivery date Bonnie!
Musk: first deliveries Sep 29 @ Fremont
Just a minute ago in a tweet:
I might drive down there just for the gala presentation.
I'd recommend planning to camp out there for a few days because you may not be alone with that idea...
does production mean sig series or founders?
I'm guessing a combination of both. For example, Bjorn won't receive a Founders until all his references take deliver, so they might delay those 3 winners' in particular.
Bonnie is still waiting to hear if getting warmed rear seats means a delay!
Pretty sure this is a delivery event for Founders, not Sigs.
I doubt there is anyone who wants me to be wrong on this more than I.
After waiting all this time, the very idea that delivery might be in 27 days sort of takes your breath away, doesn't it?
Doesn't the referral program end the next day? That would give fence sitters a day to decide if they want to go for the S and get the referral credit or hold out for the X.
The referral program runs through October 31.
Whether it's Founders or Signatures, the fact that Musk publicly announced that "production" cars will be handed on 29th makes me feel that the car will be fully revealed on that day. I mean, all of the magic in it. From then on we no longer need to guess if the second row seats fold down or not, or how exactly they will fold down. What do you guys say?
Model X out on Sept. 29

Teslaâ€™s Musk Says First Model X SUVs to Be Delivered Sept. 29 - Bloomberg Business
Tesla Motors Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said the first Model X sport utility vehicles will be delivered Sept. 29.
The SUVs will be handed over at the electric-car maker’s Fremont, California, factory, Musk said Wednesday in a Twitter post. The initial vehicles will be Founders Series models, a fully loaded, extremely limited version, Tesla said.
well, I guess Bonnie will be waiting a bit longer
Thanks. I guess that means more time to decide then!
Kudos to Bloomberg Business. This has been the best article I've seen so far on Tesla. Very accurate and non-biased.
And I will gladly wait longer as well for delivery if necessary. However, if invited to personally see the Founders (and hopefully Bonnie) receive their key fobs at Fremont, I will gladly attend and enjoy the celebration. For me, a factory tour seeing Model X in production would be icing on the cake.
I'd fly in to be there, but I suspect that's not in the cards having given up my sig reservation. Unless someone wants to be really nice and take me as their guest
