    My Tesla account got an update this morning. After 18 months of waiting, my model 3 is now ready to be designed.

    Completed the entire ordering process. I am now given a September 18th - November 18th estimated delivery.

    Red LR Premium - 19in wheel- EAP + FS. Total $60k excluding tax and fees.

    Can't wait.

    I think that is actually September 2018 to November 2018. I don't think the "18" are days of the month, I think they are the year.

    Ah you are probably right. I just hope it's closer to September than November...

    Congratulations! Interesting that the LR is now pushed that far back. Looks like they're going to make a TON of AWD/Performance models in place of the LR for a while before starting back up again.

    What is wrong with the math of waiting here?

    Only ? 18 ? months of waiting?

    A wait of 18 months implies a reservation in late 2016 or January 2017.
    Does Bomquito mean a wait of 28 months?

    How can anyone who did not reserve a car on March 31, 2016,or April 1, 2016 (which means a wait of 24+ months not 18 months) ) be invited to order a car now?

    The minimum wait time to this point, June 2018, (assuming an invitation was not previously received between July 2017 and May 2018) is about 27 months

    How can anyone (other than employee) who was not reserved on March 31 or April 1 2016, (and for an 18 month wait has not already received an invitation in mid 2017) even a Tesla owner, be receiving an invite and order at this point? Seems like the minimum wait to this point is on the order of 27 months

    Indeed I reserved the vehicle Jan 2017. If new reservation estimate delivery is 4-6 months I think I deserve the September - November delivery estimate. Did you place a reservation and if so have you gotten the ability to configure?
