    According to Elon's tweet estimate:

    July=30
    August=100
    September=1,500
    Total=1,630

    So, I guess, the production is behind.

    It would be instructive to know what the bottlenecks are and what steps are required to address them. I suspect we might only know after volume production has been achieved.

    Whoa. It's a staggeringly higher number of Model 3 deliveries than the previous quarter, both in absolute terms and also relative to S+X.

    I take this as good news. Keeps the total US deliveries down and is only about 3 weeks behind the revised schedule. This is still 257 more then I expected when I put in my deposit.

    Elon vs Estimated Actual
    July=30 (Actual 30)
    August=100 (Estimated 60)
    September=1,500 (Estimated 170)
    Total=1,630 (Total 260)

    I get it. I'm just SO very ready for my model 3, this is a little cringe worthy. Breathe..... Deep breath...

    Glad I’m in the first three month window, but they should revise all of those windows. Obviously, chances for October were always slim and none, but slim just left the building on a trip to nowhere.

    I'm still supposed to be unwrapping my 3 by Christmas. I'm afraid it'll just be an IOU... (Can't tell from the wrapping since the key would be the same size as the IOU)

    I'm really trying to pace myself. I tend to get feverish when waiting too long on cool new stuff, to the point to where I don't even feel anything once I've received what I was waiting on. Also I find that thinking too much about the Model 3 is going to lead me into wanting a Model S just so I can be excited about it again.

    Existing owner?

    I bet they won't even update it any time soon, even though people will certainly start missing their window.

    Some people responded to the report on "Model 3 Owners Club," stating their reservation window was pushed back a month. Time shall tell.
