    I placed the order on 7-Dec which was confirmed on 20-Dec. Later on 28-Dec, I made a request to change vehicle to 85. Today I got the mail from Delivery Specialist that car will be ready for pick up on 10-March-2014. I received VIN number as well. Pretty excited about it. I am visiting Fremont factory on 13-Feb and am wondering if I will be able to see my car there :smile:

    Ah, your "journey to own A Tesla". I thought I was going to read about some hostile takeover of the company you were planning. =P

    It only takes about a week maybe less to build the car so it's unlikely. We were at the factory two weeks before we took delivery of our model s and we asked. They said that it was possible but would be to hard to find it. Once we got inside we understood why.

    I got the twin charger unbundled from HPWC and added it on 24 Jan. this was after VIN was assigned. My logic was to use it when I am in a different city and get hold of high amp AC chargers. This will be future proofing the car. Car cost went up in a big way after finalization.
