    For Australian P85Ds that have just finished production, the estimated delivery date is September. I'm guessing all our cars will be on the same ship, and it'll stop and unload at HK first before coming to Australia.

    DS told me June, then late July then early August. It's like your friend telling you "hey, bud, I am coming over in 5 mins, but after 10 mins he say he is still coming over....."

    Slighltly off topic, but here's a P85D in Palo Alto...
    I'm in Palo Alto for a week. I thought we had quite a few Teslas in Central, but this place wins - no surprise really. This P85D was parked outside my hotel.
    It seems to be a Tesla company car - delivery plates or similar, but seems to be in daily use: dirty, with rubber mats on the floor and a roof rack for a canoe or similar. Big brake discs. Odd looking mount for rear view mirror, which I presume is the radar or ultrasound for Autopilot. IMG_9703.jpg IMG_9704.jpg IMG_9705.jpg IMG_9706.jpg IMG_9707.jpg IMG_9708.jpg IMG_9709.jpg

    Actually, Jason, that's someone's newly acquired personal vehicle.

    In California, the white piece of paper on the window and the paper plates (Zero Emission) is what a new Tesla would have until the license plates are delivered, anywhere from 4-8 weeks later.

    The presence of roof racks is further evidence of this.

    Hi Dennis
    Thanks for the clarification - I've spotted a few more since - it's very strange to a Britisher that people can drive around *without* a licence plate...
    In Raymond Chandler's novels Philip Marlowe could learn the name of the owner of a vehicle by reading the licence paper on the screen - now a vehicle seen from in front is anonymous. ACLU vs 1984.

    It's a very "California" thing. Many states issue a large "temporary" plate that goes where the permanent one would go until the actual metal ones are mailed to them. I've known of owners who purposely "forget" to install their plates on their car until forced to do so. One of the things about Model S is that an untrained eye can't tell the difference between a non Sig 2012/2013 Model S with a new 2015 Model S. Especially if the owner "debadges" a new one or is one of the early deliveries that didn't have a badge indicating the Model of S that the person drives.

    As a result, some folks keep the paper ones on and make it easier to violate traffic rules.

    Did you order conventional or air suspension on your P85Ds? I ordered on 15 November 2015. Initial estimate was June. Now showing in transit. Not sure if August or September for delivery.
