Just as an idea for Tesla, but as a soon to be owner of a 2010 roadster - and having heard from other owners - waiting for you car to be built and shipped would be easier if you knew the progress of your car. When you purchase from Dell - you can log in and see what stage your computer is at in development and when/where it is shipped. (very informative for the consumer). With Tesla basing its structure on Silicon Valley standards - I would think this would be right up their alley...... Car production number..... Date car being built at Lotus Plant Date car being painted and colors Date interior fitted and colors Date car completed at Lotus Plant Date car shipped to Menlo Park, CA Date car completed in Menlo Park, CA Date car ready for shipping to consumer. Shipping reference number for consumer. Date consumer receives car. Other thoughts?
