    I believe it refers to the seats with the alcantara accents and the grey piping.

    Good one! If you remember George Carlin you may be giving away your age :)

    It's worse than that... it was very early Carlin, from the late 60s and early 70s.
    Wait, I think I just dated myself toooooo

    Yes, that is the highest VIN number listed so far, but it does tell us something about the production rate. Interesting that the delivery windows have stayed pretty much the same over the last week or so.

    Well I responded to the 'Your Model S Delivery!' e-mail on Sept. 1st with all the information. It looks like it wasn't passed along for final paperwork so I got ahold of the new person taking care of Texas and sent it again. They also never asked for the money so sent that today. My car probably could have been on a truck last week if I had know all of this. Oh well, it'll get here eventually.

    It looks like Tesla will very likely have produced over 500 cars this quarter. Delivered....probably not quite. Regardless, I don't think they're too far off from their goal rates.

    Got the call, SL105 delivery in Atlanta. The window appears to be 10/12 thru 10/26. My config is Performance Signature Red, Body Color roof, white leather, CF trim, 19" wheels, body armour and HPWC no rear facing seat. The Specialist located in Dania Beach did not have the VIN number nor does he know whether the car will go directly to Atlanta for prepping presumeably by the Service Manager here in Atlanta or whether it will first have to go to Florida. A weight has been lifted and I feel so much better getting a status report on my car and now having a contact to call if I have any questions.

    An interesting "almost update" after calling Tesla this afternoon (trying to determine if my Model S will show up before/after the solar PV / EV plug installation.) The rep is expecting that all sig reservation holders will be notified within the next 10 days as to what their expected delivery window would be. Time to open the flood gates!

    As a fellow Atlantan, this also lifts a huge weight off my shoulders as well. Thanks for the update!

    CEO: Tsunami of Hurt Coming for Those Shorting Tesla

    - - - Updated - - -

    That tracks closely with my estimates based off of the Fox interview.

    Based on VIN 242 scheduled for early October delivery in Pennsylvania its pretty clear they have a bottle neck in processing the cars through to delivery, but the actual production ramp up looks to be going well.

    And looking at the original calculations showing ~240 by the end of this week, the fact that we have VIN 242 already shows that Elon probably is going to manage making his goal of 80 cars this week. We heard at the beginning of September that the production rate was ~10 cars per week, so I think its fair to conclude that Tesla has been doubling every week this month. I see no reason for that not to continue, so the trend towards a production rate of 500+ cars/week looks like it will be achieved in the first week of October.

    As the batches get bigger, the weird out of order effects we've been seeing will largely disappear as we move into general production. So if we get into October and see the factory achieve its planned output level it will become fairly easy to predict the delivery schedule through the rest of the reservation list.

    Tesla stock closed up 3.32% at $30.46/share...I have a feeling that it won't be dipping significantly below $30/share any time soon (if at all). Bring on the Tsunami of Hurt for those shorts!!!
