Is the 4 week delivery time real time or Elon time?

    Super excited. Ordered Model 3 on Saturday and can't wait to surprise my wife with it. Just wondering if this is really going to happen in 4 weeks. I'd be grateful for any help you can give me with the timing of your model 3 delivery experience. I tried using the spreadsheet but got lazy and thought I'd post instead.

    Cheers!

    John

    A lot of people have received their cars in 3 weeks or even less.

    Received my car 6 days after configuring....probably could have been less had they been open on a Monday--but I live near the factory, so that may be unique

    I received my car almost exactly 4 weeks after configuring, but that seems to be on the long side. Of course things could always change.

    I got the call after 13 days, took delivery after 18. Could have potentially gotten it sooner but the Fremont delivery center was full-up with appointments until last night.

    Let me know when you get the call. If I hear first, I'll just stay quiet. :)

    I took the first Tennessee delivery today (or so they told me).

    I ordered on 1/4 - Vin on 1/12 (I think) - Delivered on 1/24

    If it's any consolation, I've heard the time from VIN to delivery is VERY short. Quite different from the model S/X experience.

    I'm in Maryland, ordered on 1/4, got a call a few days ago saying delivery 2/12 or 2/13. Was called back today and have a scheduled pickup time on 2/3 (could have picked 2/1 if I wanted to) and a VIN. So just about exactly 4 weeks to East coast!
