Nice find. Waiting for the first VIN number spy /reveal pictures now. We don't need the last digits but it will be interesting to see if there are any performance models / dual motor versions coming of the line soon (not expected I know)

Pictures of production Model 3s
Surprised nobody has mentioned the inclusion of a VIN code for a single motor performance version. Was that ever confirmed anywhere? Or is that sort of just a carryover from the Model S when such a configuration was available?
I think the assumption was that motors 1,2,3,4 were all for Model S & X.
Then comments that new motors A & B are not performance variants.
So, speculation that we won't see a performance Model 3 until next year.
( This was the 2017 VIN decoder document. )
I suppose they could build a performance Model 3 using a Model S/X motor, but I kind of doubt that.
Is there a way to obtain vehicle info using a VIN decoder? any examples for model s , x
user fills out VIN and the system provides vehicle info. Any suggestions if there is a Database?
Does this do what you want? :
The unique serial number can contain up to 6 digits, which means up to the value "999999"... So based on the VIN, theoretically, TSLA could produce up to 999999 of Model 3 cars (same configuration like one-motor standard, and all produced in Fremont) in that year alone. Adding dual-motor, then it'd be 2 million of Model 3 cars in that year alone (who knows, year 2020?). The VIN is well-designed to consider maximum production output.
Generally speaking, the sequence number keeps incrementing regardless of the options indicators that proceed it. So there wouldn't likely be a RWD and AWD both with the same sequence number for instance. If they ever get to making a million model 3 per year then they might need to be more creative, but I doubt they will run into that limit.
I see. Thanks for the clarification. In that case, they could use more letters for the site production digit, like letter F and G representing the Fremont plant if they are able to ramp up to more than a million model 3 per year.
