    It was either that or continue to debate the value lost to the exclusivity of my Sig when an owner living in Toronto visits Buffalo, NY. I figured that preying on anxiety was the best path to take.

    Just to be completely clear...there's absolutely nothing about an NDA that implies a conspiracy. There may simply be some minor details that Tesla would prefer not have made public just yet..it's not that big of a deal either way. There probably have not been any NDAs, but if there were it could explain some of the radio silence on the delivered vehicles.

    Maybe the explaination for the radio silence is, those people have real lives and don't sit around all day obsessing about Model S on TMC. Sorry, but it had to be said.

    For the record, I totally got the joke and thought it was a great post! But others sort of took off and ran with the "well, maybe people did sign NDAs or something because why haven't we heard anything from anyone who already got a car delivered!?!?!?!?" I was responding to those subsequent posts, not yours.:smile:

    Why would you sign an NDA? Did they offer you some incentive or was it a requirement to receive your car? Sounds odd?? Can u post a pic?

    No, I'm quite sure Tesla threatened them with death.

    I've brought up several computer manufacturing lines and NDA's are standard practice when new IP is developed for big stuff like major reworks. But this feels more like an embargo as I'm sure there is a relief or trigger date in the near future.

    For ten years free service plus a replacement battery when the updated ones come out, I'll sign all the NDAs they want :)

    Haven't we all had enough fun with the NDA conspiracy theory posts? Could we get this back to being real information about what deliveries are being scheduled and when?

    Agreed, I'm frankly surprised that the Mods haven't moved references to them along with our remarks about them out of this thread.

    I've met Rod and Barbara at Roadster Events.

    Perhaps they are Tesla robots planted years ago with an early Sig Roadster just for this conspiracy now.

    Thanks for the support, Larry. I felt a little odd being a spoil-sport, but I know some folks would prefer to just be able to check these threads quickly for new news.

    They would have been moved earlier but the Mods all signed NDA's so I'm not allowed to explain why......:wink:

    I wasn't. I *do* have an NDA with Tesla. All I'll say is that it has nothing to do with my being a customer or shareholder!

    Great. This is now on topic?:smile:

    That's really interesting. Hope you can share with us at some point what it was about.
