    My MS60 (Vin 7777*) moved into production yesterday 3/9! I've heard anywhere from 1-3 weeks to complete production and be ready for pickup. What have you guys experienced?

    Average production time is 5 days (average is actually a little longer than that right now but I'm ignoring the recent longer trend for 85D and P85D cars since you've said you have a S60 on order). Time from production completion to delivery varies. Depends on how far it has to go and sometimes just if you're the last one to go on a truck or you have to wait. I think it's safe to assume you'll have your car by the end of the month since this is the last month of the quarter.

    Yeah i totally expect it this month for the same reason. I was originally scheduled for mid April and a March 30th production date but this past weekend they called and told me they were moving me up almost a month.

    I live 180 miles from the Fremont factory so im hoping in a week or two it a be here.

    My S85 spent six days in production. It started on Thursday and the morning of the following Wednesday it was done. (I heard the factory is closed on Sunday so that's five days actually being worked on.) It arrived at my local service center (Rockville, MD) the following Monday and was ready for me to pick it up Tuesday, so 12 days from entering production to pickup. (I couldn't get it immediately because of paperwork nonsense, but the car itself was ready and I could have picked it up then if I had been a bit more on the ball.)

    Just a data point for you, no idea how it would relate to yours.

    A data point that might not be relevant (since it's an 85D) or might be (since mine also went into production on 9-Mar) but my car is already apparently out of production. 2 days seems way too quick, but I sure won't complain; maybe yours will see a similar accelerated build?

    I'm still in: Your Model S has entered the production queue at our Factory in Fremont, California.




    I'm assuming that means it's waiting to START production. Will I get notice as to when they start building it?

    I'm Going nuts waiting!

    Mine's been in production all week and still is.

    Looking at the Google tracking spreadsheet, there was one MS recently that completed production and arrived on the East Coast in about 3 days I think.

    I got mine yesterday at the Fremont factory. Got to tour the factory. Amazing factory! They are working 24/7 right now. So if your are in production or close to it you won't be waiting long. :D

    And a week and a half later, still showing in production. My estimated delivery date for keys in my hand is 3/25, so. . . Plenty of time to cross the country still!
