    I got the email, too!

    This is the part where they get my hopes up for a 2012 delivery after I've just about managed to accept that it's going to be the end of January 2013!

    Oh well, it still put a massive smile on my face --> :biggrin:

    I haven't responded to an email so fast, as I did on this one. Told them I'd pickup at the factory if it's easier, just name the date, time and location. Ha! I guess I should start the penfed loan process just in case.

    Ditto. I offered to bring them a duffle bag of cash if it would make delivery happen sooner.

    Yes, me too. Seems like CA customers only. Anyone outside CA get this?

    I got the email. I replied immediately.
    I was expecting clicking the button to take me to MyTesla. I wasn't expecting it to just create an email to delivery with the subject of "yes". My email is forwarded, so I included my P6852 and my Reservation number. hopefully they can figure that out. I'll be interested to hear when people get the follow up emails asking about financing (or was I supposed to say that I'm paying cash in the body of the "yes" email?)

    I'd be happy to sacrifice a day or two in delivery to get a 2013 rather than a 2012, since I think 2013s will have higher resale value. but I'd much prefer a Dec 31 delivery to a Feb 15 delivery.

    I still don't see how I could be in the running to get my P6852 in December when kroneal is still waiting for his sig.

    I just got the email a moment ago and replied immediately. I'm P957, and I'm in Texas.

    I will be a little peeved if they feed the California pipeline due to the convenience of delivery in order to pad their quarterly stats. It wouldn't be that big deal if it was P1,200, but P6800+ would be very annoying. Just being honest, and no offense to the later # Californians who got the email. I'm looking forward to the car AND the 2012 tax credit.

    I got the email, too. I'm #6703, and I live in Indiana! This might be more about 85kW cars than anything else. But yeah, I'm a bit excited to say the least.

    85kWh is the deciding factor. I got nothing (P1440 in bay area)

    I'm thinking it's the 85kWh thing, as I'm in Oregon and I've seen both Performance and Non. I've seen several blues but several that are other colors.

    Like I said before on another thread, while there is likely some constellation of commonalities in those who are getting cars "early" it's very unlikely that we'll ever be able to deduce what they are. Frankly, I'm just stoked that there's a chance.

    Agreed Kip. Tesla has made it clear that 60s come after Jan 1, therefore no 60-future-owner should expect that email.

    Got it, oHIo. #3,223 and said yes.

    Maybe my signature is right, and the world (as I know it) will be ending on 12/21.
