    Made a Order of white M3 on Monday 9/5, got call from Tesla today said it’s read for delivery. They even offer me 1 year free supercharging if I can make decision today and schedule the delivery at the weekend.
    I was kind shocked and confuse. Am I supposed to wait 2-4 months till delivery? Is it normal? Or they just want get rid off some M3 with issues?

    Pretty sure they're matching orders to cars that are already built. If there is a match, Tesla has no incentive to let that car continue sitting on a lot. Pretty sure they're eager to hit numbers before the quarter finishes too. I really doubt it has anything to do with vehicle quality.

    That is pretty amazing especially with the 1 Year of supercharging. Not a bad deal.

    If you’re RWD, not surprised they had inventory to match you too. If they offered you some free Supercharging, that’s not something I’ve seen before (make sure you have that in writing!)

    Them offering free supercharger for a year is huge. They’ve never done that.

    Yeah, I'm a little skeptical about the free supercharging but they are really trying to pull all the levers this quarter.

    Just for reference, Q3 probably ended over the weekend. I’m assuming the follow the standard business quarters. Don’t see any need to push anything at the beginning of Q4.

    I ordered my Model 3 RWD on 8/26; Tesla called on 8/27 stating they had one ready; I was expecting the 2-4 months when I ordered. Picking up my car tomorrow. No supercharging or other incentives were offered.

    Tesla follows a standard fiscal year, so their current quarter ends 9/30 and year end is 12/31.

    They also don’t release sales data monthly, so not sure why they’re incenting people to to deliver by 8/31. They will release sales data by month when they release quarter end results, so maybe they just want August to look good independent of September which will likely be their best ever.

    I'm trying to understand why they'd offer you a year of free super charging when you already made the order? Were you hesitating because you didn't expect the vehicle so quickly?

    Something smells wrong about the "year of free supercharging" from a new TMC member with just one post.

    Not to scare you, but maybe it's one they reconditioned after someone rejected it?

    What's the last few number of the VIN

    I agree, something doesn’t add up here.

    Not surprised (if your order is RWD). They ended up with too many RWD because way more people wanted AWD than anticipated. Get everything in writing on paper, get your own copies of all the paperwork (do not trust them to keep the records, they're terribly disorganized), and don't pay them until you've inspected the car, but other than that, go for it.
