    No. The reason this happened is they had to do a step up from 70 --> 75 packs. Now, how to do this without Osborning one self? You use up all your 70 packs and start putting 75 packs in the cars ordered as "70" cars. Then as soon as all the cars with the last actual 70 packs have been delivered or at least 100% payed for you announce the 75 as the new pack.

    So with Model 3 we wouldn't see this from the start (pointless) but I'm sure we'll see the same during production when they do iterations and step ups.
