    Tesla itself probably doesn't know how to decipher them yet, as in where you are in the big queue. They know where you live, when/where you reserved, if you're an owner, if you're a Tesla employee, etc. They will figure out the queue order later. Reservation number could just be random.

    Firstly, for your safety and the safety of your order, do not share your reservation number. As a group, from discussions yesterday, we're generally unsure that the RNs have any elements to them that suggest order. They seem to have been randomly generated and like exist in a queue separately on Tesla's backend.

    My reservation number is RN00000001. Does that say that I will receive my before Elon?

    I don't think they have any real meaning. I reserved two, in the same order, and my numbers have nothing to do with each other, beyond starting with the same 3 digits. I think they are randomly generated and attached to other metadata in their systems that only they know.

    Reservation numbers have always been very random, and have nothing to do with sequence. They are used in communicating with Tesla about your reservation. They are different than reservation sequence numbers, which I don't expect them to have at all for the Model 3 (in the old days they would appear as two separate numbers).

    No, but it does mean that you will be getting the second car, cause my reservation number is RN000000000.

    :p

    Nice. You got me.

    Actually I was the 2nd person in line at the Chicago Grand Avenue reservations. I got there at 4AM.

    Anyone else out there that stood in line at the Chicago Grand Avenue location?

    I got to the Grand Avenue location around 7 AM (was around the 12th or 13th person in line). My RN starts with RN1077.

    For what it's worth, I put in 2 simultaneous reservations yesterday, and got RN1075XXXXX and RN1074XXXXX (differ by over 70,000) - I doubt you can read anything into what appear to be random numbers.

    RN numbers mean nothing. Tesla will not be generating sequence numbers because of the difficulty of managing the geographic roll-out process. Your reservation has a timestamp, and that's what is used in conjunction with your geography for determining when you'll be asked to configure.

    Tesla has never produced vehicles in reservation or even sequence number order.

    When it comes time to configure, they'll segment first by geography, then pick a timestamp that represents a certain number of orders. They'll invite everyone within that window to configure and confirm. 7 days after confirmation, your order becomes locked in and is submitted for production scheduling to the factory.

    I stopped by sometime between 11:50 and 12pm yesterday at the Grand Ave location and my RN starts with RN1080. There were 3 people in line ahead of me, only waited about 5 mins.

    Reservation numbers look like a combination of area + store number + priority + 11-check to me... but I'm no expert.

    I made a reservation yesterday at the store in Nashville, but I haven't received a confirmation email or anything yet. Where do you find the reservation number?

    How does Tesla know if you reserved online or at the store? seems like it was the same portal.
