    I think I am following --

    Tesla gave you a purchase window on the Founders edition that let you sell the X.1 and buy the X.2 that was a bit updated and more to your liking

    Excellent. Always nice to see the bedrock supporters of Tesla gain a perk. I mean that sincerely.

    Hello from Hong Kong. In Hong Kong we will have 5 founder series (as far as I know). My VIN is #122, Hong Kong founder range is either #121-125 or #120-124, as I know the owner of #121, #123 and #124. I am surprised to see #130, as I think we would be the last founders before bonnie.

    We all have AP 2.0, but we don't have the 100kWh battery pack. Tesla Hong Kong doesn't allow us to upgrade to 100kWh, even when it was available and we were willing to pay the extra money.

    So #130 is not the only Founders with AP2.0 or a build year of 2017 - but does hold the distinction (I think) of the only one with a 100kWh battery.

    As of yet, no one has spotted 5 Founders, VINs 125-129.

    Sounds like a one-of-a-kind. You may have to name it "Rainbow Unicorn" or something.;)

    'The Unicorn' has merit. :)

    If you changed the honker that comes standard in all Teslas, you certainly would have a Uniquehorn.

    I opted for the 5-seat / fold-flat configuration because dogs. I also chose 20" wheels (vs 22").

    Remember that the referral Founders come fully loaded, for a discounted base price. So choosing all the upgrade options didn't change the purchase price. (Nor did it lower the purchase price by picking the two cheaper options that I selected.)

    Very interesting this post :) I have a Founder delivered August 19. 2016 with VIN F00076. Nice to see that 130 will "probably" be the last one. Only 4 Founder in Norway and only 130 total! Yes :)

    Congratulations on ordering a nice car!

    I got my 12/6-ordered fold-flat P100D yesterday (not, of course, a Founders). Have you a delivery scheduled yet?

    No! Only a 'late Feb/March' like so many here.

    Very exciting. I'm jealous.

    I believe I read somewhere the 5 seat configuration does not have the 3rd row vents. You might want to check with someone with a 5 seater if your pups are going to be back there a lot.

    I did check about ventilation. Thank you for making sure I knew. It appears that with the fold flat option, air circulates fine without the extra set of vents. At least that's what the test data showed, I'm told.
