Prediction of Initial Sig X Deliveries

Going out on a limb and predicting that the first Sig X delivery dates will be announced between this Thursday 11/19 and next Tuesday 11/25. Coincident with the start of the LA Auto Show and prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. We have much to be thankful for!

What do you mean "will be announced"? As customers actually getting their cars? Not happening.

Our P85D entered production on 11/21/14 and then it was shipped by rail. It only made it to our Service Center on 12/29 with a few days left in the year.

With only 40 days left in 2015, upcoming holidays and no confirmed mass production start date, I am going to say that if Tesla manages to deliver 100 Signatures by 1/1/16, they will outdo themselves.
They ran out of time in 2015, unfortunately.
 
With Signature deliveries of one's and two's and three's outside of California, it may not be economical for Tesla to use rail to some geographies. However, it seems that having all the Production X reservation holders configure and being able to batch and ship carloads via rail to various state terminals would achieve economies of scale. Rail can't directly deliver to a Design or Service center, there has to be a Auto Rail Terminal -- Lorton Va (northern VA), West Chicago (Chicago area), Dacula, Ga (Atlanta) a few that I am familiar. From these, they use Truck Carriers -- that is how traditional dealers get their inventory. Using this method, high numbers to a single location (at least a train car load from the factory) has to be the model, since they don't transfer cars to and from rail cars. As Tesla ramps Fremont to nearly 2000 vehicles a week, rail batching most likely will be the transport for S and X. Batching both models via rail to a distant terminal.

I talked to my delivery specialist today and was told I should have my X built in December and be able to pick it up at the Factory in mid to late December. I think I'm vin 8xx if I remember correct what they had told me
