    Ordered a P85+ last week and called them to finalize right away. Today, the status changed form "Tesla is building your Model S Performance" to "Reserved". What just happened? :)

    Ours changed as well today but we are scheduled for delivery on 6/8 so thought that it may indicate that is was actually finished and now in QA. Now it seems that may not be the case...

    Same here but also an invoice appeared to the amount of the reservation fee.

    Mine went from "The factory is building your Model S" to "Reserved" too. Sounds backwards?

    I do have a VIN# now. I placed my order on May 22, 2013. Here's hoping there is not a delay! I'm planning on a late June delivery.

    Ditto here, same deal. I don't have a delivery date that I can see, but I did get the links last week to get trade-in values, etc... Hope it means that things are moving along more quickly than originally thought <g>

    Just happened with mine too. Maybe their database exceeded it's range.

    I wouldn't pay much attention to that. It's never had any correlation to the actual status of my vehicle (Roadster or Model S).

    It happened to me too, looks like it is a common thing. I've got my VIN, completed paperwork and payment with a delivery in just over two weeks so I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure they will fix it.

    Prolly Elon was just messin with SpaceX's new warp drive and it ended up putting Tesla into an inertial frame of reference that was out of synch with the rest of us. Nothing to worry about.

    only sensible explanation I can think of is that the production line is running in reverse.

    What VIN did you receive? Are they in 13,5xx or 14,xxxs yet?

    I would not put much stock into the "My Tesla" description. I'd talk to someone in Ownership. Go on what they say. My situation my not apply, but when I ordered (Signature 524), my "My Tesla" was never accurate.

    Got it too. Released to the factory on 5/27. Had "building" status all this week. Flipped to reserve today. Probably a software error.

    My just got updated again. This time it went from "Reserved" to "Confirmed". I also got an email saying my estimated completion date is June 19th.
