    Here's a video
    by the Model 3 owner's club that indicates that rear-wheel drive Model 3s will be the initial cars built, to be followed months later by the dual-motor Model 3s. The implication is that those of us in Hawaii who order a rear-wheel drive Model 3 (particularly if you are already a Tesla owner and managed to get in line in front of Nanimac on first day of orders) could get pretty early deliveries of our Model 3.

    At this time, I'm pondering taking the Model S back to the mainland to become my Iceman and Papafox summer and winter adventure car and using a Model 3 for my Hawaii driving.

    Papafox, I think you should wait and get a dual-motor one :p

    You see... this is how I cannot win.
    If I go for rear-wheel drive, Nanimac challenges me to a race in her Model 3, P70DL
    If I go for dual-motor, she drives by, waving and smiling, in HER Model 3 while I'm still waiting for delivery

    These decisions are tough, particularly when I have a Portuguese Water Dog depending upon me to defend the family honor.

    Does anyone have a delivery estimate for Hawaii yet, or any speculation of when they'll start seeing estimates?

    Not even sure if employees here who ordered first production cars have delivery dates yet. Would think they would get theirs by the end of the year, but who knows.

    A couple of weeks ago I asked a local Tesla employee who has a Model 3 reservation if he has heard anything about configuration. Answer was no.

    heard from a co-worker that his friend in CA just took delivery of a model 3 (and does not work for tesla). I asked for a photo (or it's not real) to verify the story. I guess we will find out.

    I heard the first Model 3 in Hawaii will be delivered “soon” ...assuming it’s an employee car. Let’s take turns hanging out at the SC to check all the deliveries that come in ;)
