TBH... this is my first rodeo, is EOQ always this crazy?

I’m looking to be sitting in a MY by around September. It seems like if I order in July I’ll likely wait until late August or September for a vin/delivery, and if I order around mid-September I’ll get matched pretty quickly.

Is end of quarter always this crazy and I’m just witnessing it for the first time? Or is this part of the MY still being fairly new?

Cheers,
-Jeff

But why not push cars out the door for delivery all quarter? Why have the deliveries so lopsided? It’s not like it takes 90 days to build a car and they build for 90 days and then push to get them out of the door.

Maybe they are just learning how to deal with scale and growth as they add on to their manufacturing capacity with new models?

I've recommended this before:

Order now, and keep delaying until you're ready. You won't be able to time it, and prices could shoot up. If you delay delivery they could honor prices locked in today. If they lower prices, you can have it adjusted down.

Thanks, and that is exactly where I'm at. I've been sitting on an order since 2/14, and locked in the $48,990 price when they had that price drop. I just have not yet "completed" my order's registration, insurance or other details. I don't want to apply for the financing, and have that approval expire and then need to re-apply.

But now I've been watching these forms, and getting a better feel for the build cycle/flow of the MY and Tesla as a whole. I also see everyone getting their MY, which is awesome, but has me drooling on the sidelines.
