    Just wanted to point people to the following thread where discussion takes place regarding the number of reservations for Model X. A supposed Tesla Employee (tagged as employee on Reddit's r/Teslamotors subreddit) says that they'll be near 12,000 reservations within a month or two, but speculates it'll be much higher when they actually have cars out in the wild for people to touch and see in person.

    Don´t want to spoil the party, but the title of the page you linked points to http://blacksheepplanet.com/12000-tesla-model-x-reservations-deposits/ which says
    Looks like the number is not official unfortunately.

    In the tally thread, reservation numbers add up to 12230 as I write. This omits dropouts which is an unknown number. In addition, several people got a signature and general production reservation, but plan to order only one of these.

    Do we need links to reports that link to/are based on TMC resources?

    Not really. - I think farzyness didn´t realize his link was based on TMC info and I just wanted to point that out.

    Tesla rep recently told me that it was his understanding that the reservation numbers were dynamic--- that as people dropped out the numbers would shift and move up (unlike VIN assignment).

    I think he's mistaken, however, as my number has not changed since I got it.

    Can anyone verify this? I suspect "dropouts" become ghost reservations and the numbers do not shift for everyone, so we really don't have any way of knowing how quickly ours will come up.

    Sequence numbers and reservation numbers (RNxxxx) don't change.
