    It seems Tesla have started to publish the factory gate date for cars on their listings. This tool lets you put in your vin and tells you the dates of nearby car vins to see when they were built/left the factory. If you have the vin but no idea when you might get it, this should at least help tell you roughly when it left the factory - more useful for Europe, Asia etc I guess

    Tesla Info: check vin for factory dates.

    Useful if you're looking at buying a used car and want to know when it was built too rather than just the year it was registered.I'd heard they'd started add the factory date so I presume this will just get more and more accurate as more cars get listed.

    I missed this thread. Really cool. I got my VIN in source on 3/5 and from this tool it looks like that is probably the day the car left the factory.
