    I got an email today that my car entered Production. Normally after how many weeks after it goes into Production can I expect delivery?

    Mine entered production on May 5, and I just got an update on MyTesla that my delivery estimate is now May 19 - June 2.

    Congratulations!

    My understanding is that production takes about a week.
    IF there are no QC concerns, it is then shipped.
    The QC issues throw a large variance into the date.
    And a shipment across country has its own variability to deal with.

    I completely understand wanting more specifics. Mine is in the first stage of production now:)

    The waiting is the hardest part (to quote Tom Petty) and I was warned by the MN Owners group that it would be so. And they are right. And I am the worst person for wanting instant gratification so this is particularly challenging for me. :)

    I received that same email on April 28, but my DS said Tesla would not send a truck out with just one car so I'll have to wait until at least one other car is ready for delivery to Vegas.

    Got an update for May 18-25, and just got a call from my delivery specialist that the car is in transit and it could be as early as next Saturday - and wouldn't you know it, I have a full day event already booked that day! So it sounds as though I'm looking at May 28 unless I can find a way to get off work for an afternoon and have someone drive me to the store (which I am definitely going to push for!).

    Tesla will pay for a cab or Uber. They do in Portland anyway.

    I don't see many updates in the spreadsheet for California. Just three right now with Production Started dates. That's can't be right based on some recent posts.

    My DS email today saying my car is well on it's way thru production and he'll be in touch soon to schedule pickup in Fremont :)

    DS said first half of June for me. Ordered 4/12 and confirmed 4/20.

    Original estimate was May 23-28 for delivery. This sucks.

    My delivery manager said the car has already entered production but I haven't gotten the update notice in mytesla page and on the phone they verbally quoted end of June and will try to push it up. Judging by Julesp313's production to delivery schedule, it only took about 16 days from order to delivery...

    I'm trying to coordinate an electrician to come out to install the HPWC but have no idea when to do so as delivery timing is quite vague
