    For SR, LR and Performance it says "Standard Battery available in 5-8 months" for 3 of those options. But it also says "Delivery in ~2-4 months"

    Im trying to take adventage of the federal tax credit but I'm confused... do I have to weight 5-8 months or will I be able to get it in 2-4 months?

    SR probably not coming until 2019. And 2019 is when tax credit starts getting cut (on January 1st). So you likely have to choose either LR with full tax credit sooner or SR with partial tax credit later.

    SR will be available in 5-8 months and CANNOT be ordered now. If you order RWD LR, AWD, or P you should get you car in 2-4 months from order

    Tesla isn't gonna deliver a single short range car with the full tax credit. It's either-or at this point.

    SR with $3750 tax break is still a good deal.

    Yeah it’s not bad at all. I decided to pull the trigger on a LR RWD because I don’t know how long it would have taken me to get an SR version (not a previous owner, didn’t reserve until February 2018, etc). Who knows. I probably ended up spending $7000 more than I needed to but who knows.

    That’s ok. At least you’re secure the $7500 and enjoy the car sooner.

    Plus if you sell later on. I’m sure you can recover at least $1k or $2k from the bigger battery.
