    Per Elon's latest letter:

    Model S: More than 900 reservations so far

    Given the cost advantages, it might not come as a surprise that we've received about 900 reservations for the Model S. The surge of reservations online and at showrooms in California proves without a doubt that there's pent-up demand for a car that doesn't compromise on performance, utility or efficiency.

    The Model S does 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds and will have an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. A 17-inch touchscreen with in-car 3G connectivity means you can listen to Pandora Radio or consult Google Maps, or check the car's state of charge remotely on your iPhone. The Model S can be recharged from any 120V, 208V or 240V outlet or quick-charged from an external direct current supply in only 45 minutes.

    Tesla also is taking reservations for the Model S Signature Edition with a $40,000 reservation fee, which is refundable. Tesla will produce only 2,000 Signature Edition cars, which will be the first built and have unique interior and exterior features. Signature Edition cars will be evenly split between US and European customers.

    Was this a new email newsletter? I have signed up for the newsletter about 5 times and I still never get these emails.

    This might be a pretty obvious suggestion, but have you checked your spamfilter / spam directory? It might be caught up there somehow?

    I get his emails (they don't go to spam) and I didn't get this one nor the one about him being on Letterman.

    Some of us get ALL the love! Don't know why everyone isn't getting it, mine came last night. It included an offer to go to the NY event, a blurb about letterman, and the info about the number of reservations.

    Might it be something like their server restricting number of emails they send out to certain mailservers for fear of being spamlisted themselves ? Crappy coding in their sendmail routine?
    Try asking tesla directly about it.

    I also signed up recently but have yet to receive a single email. I just checked my spam folders (I have two layers of spam protection) and last night's email (send time?) wasn't in either.

    Got Elon's eMail and I will be in NYC to see Model S either Thursday or Friday.

    900+ reserved so far... Model S reservation numbers will soon surpass Roadster.

    with the number of Roadsters getting delivered and those in a financial crunch canceling orders I bet the numbers are very close to the same right now.

    And you have to believe that this 2 day event in NYC will easily push the reservations number over the 1000 mark.

    Roadster sold 100 in the first month

    Model S has sold 900 in the first month.

    With the publicity from Letterman's show, I would bet the reservations count will double in the next two to three weeks. I'm sooo looking forward to watching it! This will be the first time a car is driven on their set, and I'm sure this one will make a very big impression!

    Would be nice to have a Roadster on set by way of introduction.

    The Term "Electric Car" still has the golf cart slow dorkmobile image.

    First show the audience the Roadster to show what Electric can do, then bring out the Model S.

    It will bring the house down.

    I was told today that Tesla is right at or near 1,000 orders for the Model S.

    I am curious too. What's the highest reservation number people have seen so far?

    Also, found a post with Model S number P-1156 in owner's forum for model S posted in late August so looks like good progress. I assume the european orders are on top of that.

    I heard they are around 1,500 total for everything combined. Signature, R series, P series, European, etc.

    I just received my sequence number P-1341. They've probably reserved over 2000 Model S already. Took ~ 26 hours to get a sequence #.

    Q2 2012 - so far away...:eek:
