    I decided to add another reservation to configure for a family member a base model when it's available. Reservation placed at 10am and by 3pm it was ready to configure. Specked the same as my day one it shows the same delivery window.

    Guess that means everyone (at least North America) is free to order!

    Have LHD not-North-America locations had their ETAs improve?

    RHD Australia still reassuringly says "2019" on my delivery estimator...

    I think this is all about the US tax credit expiration date. 5,000 a week and improving for 6 months with all the higher margin cars.

    So it's based on order date and preorder date is irrelevant?

    I was told by my local dealership that preorder date still has some relevancy in terms of your delivery date vs the other people in your area who have also ordered.

    Yes. Reservation queue only affects when you’re initially invited to configure. After you have an invite, it’s on you to decide whether to place the order or wait for another configuration to be made available. People getting their $2500 down before you are generally going to be in front of you (assuming it’s the same config), but there’s some variability due to the way they batch produce colors. More profitable configs for Tesla will generally get priority.

    To be honest i think its unfair. TESLA should atleast consider a week range ( last week of June) and give priority for Pre-Order dates. I have been traveling for work and i have ordered a few days later I got the invite and my delivery est has been pushed to 90 days later ( oct'18-Dec 18) and downside of it that I miss full tax credit :(
    Well, i can't do much other than waiting for my delivery:)

    Full tax credit will go to Dec 31 2018. So long as you get it in Oct-Dec 18 you aren't missing any tax credit.

    It completely fair now. But now there are multiple config available, each with their own delivery dates, so now it depends on when you order and what you order.
    Exactly the same as when S $ X released.

    It will be less fair if they sell you a cheaper car earlier and go belly-up in the process. As great as the model 3 is, and it IS GREAT, the company is in a dire financial situation at the moment. He/she who contributes most will be served first. You will get the full credit until 12/31.

    It hasn't been confirmed yet - I think we're waiting for the official numbers coming up this week. But most of us think that it's highly likely that they are putting off #200,000 delivery until July, which means full tax rebate through Dec 31.

    I betting that they deliver #200,000 this week....

    So, expect the $7500 tax credit to last until Dec 31.

    $3750 should last until June 30, 2019.

    $1875 should last until Dec 31, 2019

    Sorry if it’s been explained, but if they deliver 200k this month, how do deliveries as late as dec still qualify for the full $7500? Great news for us waiting till sept (est).

    Jan 1st 19 - June 30th 19 - $3750 Tax Credit

    July 1st 19 - Dec 31st 19 - $1875 Tax Credit

    Law is whatever quarter the 200,000th delivery is plus one additional quarter gets $7500. After that, the next two quarters get half the full credit ($3750). Then the next two quarters after that get $1875.
