    Yes. As long as the lease is 3 years or more, the lessee gets the state rebate.

    My understanding was they would be cranking out LR/AWDs to fill most/all orders.

    But as we know, no way to ever know with certainty.

    I heard something similar, however the associate made it painfully clear that it was an estimate and not a guarantee. Have my fingers crossed tho!

    Agreed. I never would have guessed that Tesla would be sending lots of cars overseas in what will be the second week of November.

    Even though they sending massive amounts overseas still, some state side is still getting theirs. It's trickling slowly state side, but come DEC, it will be Fast & Furious! They gonna hit that NOS button for delivery lol.

    I went though that "fast and furious" during the beginning of the quarter. I couldn't make the 2 day window for delivery so I lost the car.

    I ordered 10/13 and I haven't been contacted besides the initial "thank you" email. Wondering if I should be concerned about that or not.

    This was like back in April or March, but my coworker and his brother both went to Tesla Buena Park and placed their orders on site. Coworker's brother placed order first. MR black/black 18" and then my coworker placed his order. Some issue happened (put the $2500 down but no account was created) for my coworker so he had to return the next day (Tesla was closing soon that day) to replace his order and put down ANOTHER $2500. So at this point, my coworker ordered a day AFTER his brother; exact same trim and options. Yet, my coworker was able to take delivery one week before his brother did. Just wanted to throw that info out there. And they also eventually refunded him his first $2500 that went no where.

    I have been getting this type of runaround since I ordered mine from the Palo Alto, CA showroom on September 19. Yes September. At that time they were pushing hard to deliver cars by the September 30, end of Q3 and so were prioritizing local orders because they could be delivered fastest. I was given 2 years free super charging to buy it. But what happened next is where the wheels fell off. The sales guy told me it would take 2 weeks to get a VIN. I left on a backpacking trip that weekend for a few days thinking I would be OK. Literally the first Monday that I was out, they assigned a VIN to me. I was unable to reply and so lost it within one or two days. When I did finally reply just 2 days later, they told me I would have a car in 2 weeks and that the 2 years of free charging would be honored. Last I checked the earliest I can get a car is after December 15th, and frankly I don't believe them. I also expect to get screwed out of the free charging deal. It's all very frustrating. I was also told that they are shipping to Europe. I do drive by the Tesla plant regularly and usually see truckloads of Model 3's being shipped out.

    I just ordered LR basic Model S on November 5th. Is everyone aware that we will lose the $2500 California rebate if we don't take delivery by December 3rd? The rebate people at the Air Resources Board changed their policy on November 1st. As far as i know it ONLY affects Model S (since there are no other electric vehicles currently available that cost over $60k). I am HOPING that Tesla will take pity on California residents and prioritize Model S delivery (at least) but I have been unable to contact anyone who can influence this type of decision. (Sales rep apparently is unable to provide any corporate contact info what-so-ever).
    Meanwhile, everyone should complain to their California representatives about the inadequate notice provided for the new rebate policy (One month is not adequate warning since they should know delivery is likely to take longer than that). You can find your State representative here: findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov.
