    Delivery update: My car should be leaving the factory late this week (earlier than previously expected). Delivery direct to my house to save going via Miami. ETA now late next week. :biggrin:

    That's really great news because my Model S (sig 422) is on that truck as well and I hadn't gotten any indication that it left Fremont. Good stuff.

    Just a reminder that we also have an active Florida Tesla Motors Club private Group thread for sharing club related information on deliveries.

    I'm going to get the front license plate. i'm fine with how the bracket looks from the pictures I've seen online. It's a toss up though, I really like the clean look of the front end with no plate. Also our state plates being white will stick out on the black nose. I've been looking at some of the custom plates that are a different color and I may end up getting a custom plate to match the black nosecone better.

    Dr Craig Venter reports he got his Model S:
    He already has a Roadster.

    His company Synthetic Genomics is using Biotech to synthesize Hydrocarbon fuels from algae

    Designing Life: What's Next for J. Craig Venter? - CBS News

    The technology (algae -> hydrocarbon fuels) is not the problem, it's the SCALE-ability. This is an interesting parallel to Tesla's current problem with the Model S. Arguably the highest-tech car, but getting it to mass-production levels seems to be a hurdle.


    Incidentally, the top-gun Nobelist Medicine (Dr Hamilton Smith) he hired for JCVI (1st organism designed by computer) is an alumni from my high school.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_Laboratory_High_School_%28Urbana,_Illinois%29

    M Eberhard was my office-mate in grad school (UIUC), you could see my high school from our lab window. M Eberhard & Andrew Chien (son of lab's supervisor Dr Robert Chien) were both at the lab in Summer '81, the latter became Intel Director of Research & VP Corporate Technology (2005-2010).

    Is it just me or does it seem like these threads have come to a near screeching halt since the "delay" news?
    May well be that the news just took all the air from our balloons. I'm P1117 and now not sure if I will even see my car this year.
    This could mean I lose a $3500 tax rebate from state of PA. Also seems that "news" from Tesla has also come to a screeching halt.
    I'm not even hearing much at all on here about any new deliveries this week. I'd love to know how many get produced this week.

    I believe Tesla is in another news blackout period due to announcing another public offering. I don't think they can say much at the moment.

    Just received a call this morning from a friend as she was driving her new Model S into work for the first time (delivered last night). So, SSL #185 was delivered on 9/26.
