Separate names with a comma.
Discussion in 'Model S: Ordering, Production, Delivery' started by joefee, Jul 27, 2012.
E-mail from Tesla Product Specialist:
When called and got a similar answer, however, when i mentioned that I was within 30 days I got transferred and got another estimate. I would not suggest calling though if you aren't within 30 days of your estimated delivery.
Can we separate this thread into two. I believe from reading the above quote that this thread was intended to record Actual not Estimated deliveries. It would be nice to have a separate thread for Estimated deliveries. For actual deliveries via Tesla's blog we can now solidly say that the number of cars is "...29 that are either already in the hands of their new owners or on their way via Tesla Personal Delivery."

You are correct this thread was intended to be more data-based ... but alas, it is already 5 pages long ... any news from TMC on a numerical banner with latest delivery data ???
Too many other threads already exist for delivery discussions/estimates:
Last Confirmed Delivery Date
Current Production Run Rate | Forums | Tesla Motors
Sign into My Tesla | Tesla Motors
Projected Delivery Dates | Forums | Tesla Motors
@joefee - The multiplicity of threads is a symptom of (hopefully near-term) impatience.
If mods decide to restructure the threads on reservations, confirmations, configurations/finalizations, ETAs, and actual deliveries, I'd recommend that doing so wait until we have at least 2 SSL owners with pictures of them with their keys to minimize risk of potentially starting yet another set of "almost delivered" threads.
I sent a facebook message to Jason McCabe Calacanis requesting that he post here when his Model S "VIN #00000000001" is delivered. Not surprisingly I haven't received a response, but if he doesn't post here its likely he will post on his facebook page so we'll have a data point. I'm guessing that it is already awaiting Elon's inspection.
Mod note - Once deliveries begin in earnest, we'll sort posts into proper threads. But if I do it now, I'll just have to do it again in another week. This is a persistent group.
TEG saw Founders #28 in Santa Clara:
Random Model S sightings
Didn't someone say there are 30 Founders cars? Then Special Sig #1 must come very soon...
I think there are 41 Founders cars...
Best guess is 41 Founders Series.
From the official Tesla forum:
Ok, thanks! At least the first are posting about experiences now...
From the official Tesla forum:
So that makes the count at least 42 by the week of August 18th (41 founders + 1Sig).
So that's the week of *August 12 - * August 18th? Or do you figure weeks differently?
Manufacturing weeks, at least in the tire industry, are generally counted by actual production run periods. For example if there is a holiday on Wednesday, Monday and Tuesday might be week 24 while Thursday and Friday would be week 25, so there are more than 52 weeks per year. How many varies depending upon how the holidays work out.
For Founders Series owners Rod and Barbara the official Tesla communications stated:
"1. Are you available to take delivery from 7/29/12 through 8/4/12?"
August 4th being a Saturday, I would infer that delivery would be the week of August 12 - August 18th, with August 18th also being a Saturday.

Can nobody use a current photo? Sheesh.
