    Hey all... quick question. I noticed today our S85D has moved into "The factory is building your Model S". So, since purchasing on 5/19, confirmed 5/26, production queue 5/27, and now building 5/29, do most cars move this rapidly into production? or am I winning the Tesla lottery with an expedited build? I find it amazing that to special order a car from an ICE manufacturer it has taken me on average 10 weeks. Tesla in less than 6 for delivery? If that is the case, stick another feather in Tesla's cap.

    Seems like your lucky, combination of the model, where you are, perhaps color/paint schedule, etc. Some of us that ordered back in April are still waiting for production to start even.

    You are pretty much flying through the process so far - congrats. Mine has been much closer to average times, but is now in transit. If you have not already done so, put your info into the tracking spreadsheet and see how your car compares to other recent orders.

    Looking at all of the times in the delivery tracker, I am pretty stoked at the progress.

    @Travill - Hoping your car gets a little giddie-up into production soon.
    @Fluke - That is awesome that you are in transit. I can only imagine what the anticipation is like. Guess I will find out soon enough. :biggrin:

    Florida orders lumped in with the priority Georgia ones?

    If shipping by train, I suspect FL and other east coasters will be built now and western (CO, NV) will be built next week. All trying to complete delivery by end of June.
