    Does any one know the lasts production numbers ? Are they up to 30/week yet ? I know that was planned for sometime soon to now but not sure when. Are there plans to go higher? 40-45 would be 2000 cars a year which I seem to recal was a goal at one point. How is production in relation to the milestones that we have listed before like Tucker etc. I know Tucker was passed a long time ago but what was next ?!?!?!

    I took these pictures today at the MP store. Why are there so many Roadsters waiting to be picked up ? If mine was ready, I would want to drive it home asap.

    Is that a two tone blue/white Roadster in that photo? Is there a better photo of it?

    I'm pretty sure the white is just the protective tape that's on the cars when they arrive from the UK.

    Also, if you can, it's better to host your images someplace like Flickr. That way we use less of this forum's bandwidth. (We often get close to the limit at the end of the month.)

    Not all customers are lucky enough to live within 244 miles of the MP store! :smile:

    I wonder if all of these cars are truly "ready to be picked up" or they are still working on them? They ride low enough that it looks like the battery packs have been installed at least.

    **************
    My Roadster # 165 -Alpine White is now enroute to Florida with another going to Northern Florida. My car was in prep stages for 3 +weeks..it seems ,as these are basically hand assembled cars, there simply is not a fixed turnaround time on these cars.(panel realignment,squeaks ,rattles etc are worked out in California)..I am told my car took quite a bit of tweaking while others may have had a quicker turnaround time..
    I know ,for fact ,that # 187 was shipped well before mine..so it appears this may be the true situation. Tesla has no good reason to delay converting it's inventory to cash ...it is just a bottleneck.

    Doug, strange that that photo appears to show my car (#108), which I took delivery of last December! Nice photo, though! :biggrin:

    Does the F9 in the upper part of the windshield signify "Founder Series #9".
    Maybe that 108 is just a "job #" rather than a serial #?

    (I don't think Doug has a time machine, but maybe he has been holding out on us!)

    Yes, Teg, I think you're right. The 'F9' is in the same place that '181' is on the next car. That would make sense.

    No, Ben's is regular production #108 (just missed the sig100 I guess), not the 181 you see in the photo. And I think that is a black SOFTtop anyways.

    The "181" Roadster is mine (arriving Sunday morning here in Seattle!), and it doesn't currently have a hard top due to the one that came with it being scratched. I'll be getting a new yellow one shipped to me soon, so I guess that means you're not jealous of me. :smile:

    I just received my #85 in Texas one week ago, so they can get quite a bit out of sequence. There was nothing unusual about the car, a radiant red sig 100. I just endured alot of delays for paint rework, water seal problem, etc. The car is absolutely awesome and worth the > 30 month wait.

    That will bring production up to about 1000 per year. I thought they were already at 20 and were going higher this month ?!?!?!?!? What have they been at ?
