Highly-optioned P90D confirmed yesterday may be built sooner based on being "loaded"?

    First time I heard September. Let me see, TM is willing to let maxed out configurations wait until the end of the year simply for a particular configuration of tires. Sounds like bad management to me. But then again, maybe by September all the kinks will be worked out.

    To your point, if the wheels are really going to be delayed until September, if I were Tesla I wouldn't even list it as an option.

    They don't as they can fill the pipeline with other configurations. Their backlog is huge.
    If September is correct then that is crazy long. Should have shorter lead time with the suppliers. Anyone have any idea how they get the wheels?

    The Black Onix wheel is indeed delayed. Some said September from Tesla, some did not mention a date. Whatever the reason is, the black wheel is delayed. According to Tesla the black wheel is highly popular option, that is the reason they could not keep the inventory. I believe Tesla did not have enough black wheel in the first place, popular demand is a way for them to keep people patient and convincing answer to make people calm.

    This should have been an easy one to predict: that the onyx wheel would be popular. Just like knowing what items on the restaurant menu are popular...

    My P90D, blue, blank leather, carbon, 20 inch, 72A, everything except Ludi and tow arrived at my SC center today and my awesome DS sent me a pic. Poor baby has snow on her, but I am sure she is strong enough. They still have to go over the car and then will let me know how long prep will take.

    Black wheel is definitely popular but no way as popular as the included 20 inch wheel. Even the 22 silver is more popular than black because the signature is not giving the option of the black wheel. I have foreseen the black wheel will be popular but have not predicted the low stock level and the delay that might be caused by the wheel. There is no indication of the wheel delay at time of my December configuration last year.

    Truck. Got a call today from my DS pushing off delivery until next week for "minor tweaks and adjustments". Oh well - a few more sleepless nights.

    Isnt it strange that after all this time at the factory, your car still needs adjustments? How can it be that the factory missed some stuff that the SC found?

    It's not that the factory missed it. The factory decided the issues could be rectified by the SC, freeing them to go work on issues on other cars that are more.. Serious.

    That makes sense, just frustrating to have it so close and yet wait for 7-10 days of "tweaking". Just hope I have it for my March 4th trip to Richmond.
