Tesla is normally, um... "optimistic" with dates. Most interpret "late 2016" in Tesla time to mean December 42nd. And that's when they say Model X 70D orders will *begin* which means deliveries for those who have already confirmed their orders and may have reserved an X three and a half years ago.I put my deposit down today and am hoping for a 70D in September. I travel south for the winter so I need a May-Sept. delivery. Don't know what I'll do if I confirm order and it ends up delivering Oct-Dec. I am hoping the Sales team can help me with the timing. Hopefully by late summer delivery schedules will be accurate.
I think you are all going to be suprised, of course it depends on how the ramp up goes and how many P90 and 90's are ordered.
why the longer wait for coil suspension? Damn, i didnt know coil is a longer wait too... hope not.ModelXTracker has the 90/70 ratio at almost 10:1, so there's going to be a big delay while they work through the backlog of 90s before they do the 70s. It'll be even longer for 70s on coil suspension.

|P85D coil suspensions began production approximately 3 months into general P85D production, after 2014 ended.|

I was told by Tesla rep that they expect a lot more 70D orders than 90D. Also, ModelXTracker might not be a great source since the more active web users are not necessarily your average buyers.
If this were true, that would surprise me, since that wasn't the case with the S. Also, I feel that the X is a better road-trip vehicle than the S, so I would expect people to want the greatest possible range.
You really need to determine your day to day usage, for me with no commute and trips where there are superchargers do not need more than 200 mile range. Been doing fine with my 60 Model S for almost 3 years. Like you could not justify another $13,000.I'm torn again... 70D new or 90D used? I figure they'd be about the same price... something in my brain just won't let me spend (over) 90k on a car...
I figure by 2017 we should see some used or inventory Xs... if a 90D falls to within where I want to pay, it may be a better buy... assuming no aversion to a used car.
In any case, my S is under warranty for 100,000 and until 2019, so I have some time here
