    My Model S reservation # 13850 is gone from my My Tesla (My Garage) page.

    I wonder if they're getting complaints of people getting cars out of order, so are making that info no longer available?

    I believe they are gone from all pages (at least for US customers).

    I wonder if new orders placed won't be told/given that reservation # anymore?

    Mine is gone too ... so it seems it applies to Canadian customers too. What about European reservations#?

    I can totally understand Tesla removing the sequence # to prevent people from complaining about out of order deliveries.

    If the backlog has been brought down sufficiently, the sequence number could be replaced by the "delivery window". Though this will only make the inaccuracy of the delivery windows more of an issue; previously people would say "Oh, well, you're 5000 reservation numbers ahead of the most recent delivery, don't worry, everyone is delayed"; now everyone will be staring at the delivery date windows and freaking out even *more* when they don't get their cars on time.

    It's gonna make it a LOT harder for MichiganModelS to track the reservation rate, however. We're going to have to wait for earnings calls and press releases now. Or perhaps we might be able to do something with the actual reservation numbers; I suspect they have an issuance sequence which someone can figure out.

    And the suspicious part of me wonders if this is the real reason. Once they work through the backlog, then the correlation between reservation rate and sales figures is much more direct. Perhaps they don't want this information so visible, but not really "public". Hard to say at this point.

    Good job guys. Tesla put the sequence number back on MyTesla page. I'm sure it's because of this thread. :tongue:

    Just saw that. Kind of surprised actually -- it's great to know, but I imagine it causes quite a few headaches over there ("Why didn't I get myyyyyy car before hiiiiiis because my sequence number is hiiiiigher....??!?"

    ;)

    P14,480 is now displayed again on "my tesla" page. Was gone, now is back.
    Interestingly, I also have a red "delivery" button, even thought I completed the delivery questionnaire back on Jan 25.

    My number is gone again, and no Delivery button, I would definitely trade my P number display for delivery button so I know when I can get my car finally.

    I think it's probably good they do away with it. I understand why people want it but unless deliveries can be arranged to almost perfectly match sequence number, it just sets up people for disappointment and causes Tesla to field a lot of additional e-mails and phone calls. Hopefully they can simply give people an expected date range of delivery and be accurate on that front.

    At this point, I don't see why they would even bother with sequence numbers.

    The cars are not delivered in the order of their reservations, and production is at full speed with cars being delivered relatively quickly now.
