People in the Sydney shop told me late half 2019.
Just glad I bought my S when I did, imagine waiting 3 years?
I don’t have to imagine, I can remember. 2 years, 11 months and 15 days after paying a reservation fee, I finally took possession of my model S on the 18th of December 2014 in St. Leonards.

2.5 years here, see signature, but it was the last month waiting for the car to cross the pacific that was the hardest part.
I actually think that the last week was the hardest! Remember that the shipping company decided to lock the dock workers out at zero notice, delaying my car from being pre-delivered despite having been here for a month or so. My insurance was already arranged and so is now out of sync by a week or so from the delivery date.

Mine moved from 2019 to late 2018 for first production and AWD - I think Tesla is trying to extend the EV tax rebate for US customers beyond the qtr when they hit the 200k US EV limit by sending cars overseas.

Is that for Aus delivery? I had heard Canada had been pushed forward.

Last year I had my fingers crossed that they would push forward international deliveries during the ramp so they could hit the 200K US trigger when they had reached full production. Wish someone had asked when they thought they would hit 200K in the earnings call but I thought they will hit it next quarter unless they virtually stop all US deliveries for the next 4 months? I can’t see this affecting Aus much now though as once they hit the cap surely 90+% of production will go to the US till they deliver all reservations.
