I'm posting here because most owners leave the "order, deliver" section and won't see the question. You are probably aware that new buyers are facing the same confusion and anxiety that you experienced last year. We all are/have all dealt with Tesla's lack of communication, and believe me it's discussed often. We have all been promised our cars by year's end, and it's the same basic promise whether you ordered in September or November. SA's aren't much help, and they don't know what the situation is outside of "you should get your cars by year end". So how was it last year? Did you all get "satisfaction". My local SA said all orders were filled, save for a few that were due to logistical reasons. These few were compensated by Tesla for loss of the $7500 (net $3750) tax credit. Did any of you fall into the group that got compensation. More to the point: This year Tesla started shipping overseas. In order to maximize those deliveries, they switch production to foreign orders at the start of every quarter. The same this quarter, and there is anecdotal evidence (car carriers leaving plant with foreign license plate provisions) that foreign production is still happening. All this while tens of thousands domestic orders are back logged. So it seems this year will be an absolute madhouse at the end of December, especially in California. We have the most orders and may not start getting deliveries into mid/late December. Given there are only ten delivery centers in the state, that seems logistically impossible. So how was the "mad rush at delivery centers" last year? Did it seem like they could process hundreds of deliveries per day per DC? Any guesses if they will meet their promised delivery times this year?
