Founders Series Roadster reservation made yesterday
I reserved a founders series the night of the reveal. I am hoping that since this is a low volume car, they can get the first edition right. The first versions of the Model S and X needed work. It's interesting they call it Founder's series rather than Signature...
So the Founders series is still available? I deposited on a regular one last year. I would love an update on how the design and production are progressing.
Yes, seems like it. Costs $250K to reserve though...
I too would love an update on it. Maybe someone will ask at the upcoming quarterly conference call in early February.
I'm 86 yr young. I never buy green Bananas.
11/20/17 for base model.
Cancelled reservation last week - because of my bad experiences with Tesla Corporate Admin. around my early Perf. Model 3 buy.
Gotta take lessons from one's mistakes...
(Might jump in again - if they fix their problems! - a big IF...)
Oh, mostly my Model 3 problems - nothing for true Roadster enthusiasts to worry about...
I just don't feel good about early adoption anymore. Might buy later...
Wow - Tesla is quick! - To remove my referral code and my Roadster reservation from my online Tesla.com account! (I just noticed it. No telling how long it's been that way.) Luckily I downloaded my proof of payment, and contract terms, and such before they stealthily deleted everything!
No refund yet, just a bit of online "ill will" from Tesla. Now the account only shows my lone Model 3.
See, they can act fast - when it comes to pissing customers off!
They ought to act fast in returning customers' payments. Only remove a long-held reservation (still earning interest at Wells Fargo) once the check is cashed and money transferred. - And why the hell remove a referral code valid to the end of the month? (Insult to injury?)
Tesla, Tesla, Tesla... You are not improving....
Are you always this self centered?
I can only present one person's experience - my "self-centered" one" - to the forum.
You can present one experience - your "self-centered" one - as well.
But wait, your presentation is also centered on me personally.
No matter, judge me all you want (I won't judge you, just yet) - but I will still call 'em as I see 'em.
When my money comes back I'll let the forum know - with or without all my self-centeredness...
PS: There was even some... altruistic?...advice in there: Don't delete online accounts till the money has transacted and the contract is closed. Just good basic business practice. How would you feel if you logged in and suddenly, without any notice, everything was deleted?
November 2017. Base version also. I sent my deposit the week the car was announced but it took them time to acknowledge (11/29/17) my wire transfers of $5k (Nov 19th 2017) and 45k (Nov 20th, 2017).
I reserved mine in the first minute of the reservation portal during the announcement and sent my $50K via one-day wire transfer the next morning. However, I am in agreement with your thinking and just decided to cancel my reservation and properly invest the $50K in the meantime. While I believe bankruptcy not very likely, there is a possibility of this and I would hate to see my $50K dissappear. I'm still committed to the Roadster 2020 purchase. I'll just wait until it is actually released. Perhaps I'm only delayed a few months in receiving the car.
I'll order as soon as the configurator is available. It's ok if I have to wait....more time to make money with my deposit.
What date was that (reservation portal opened)?
I ordered my regular 36 hrs after the nov17 reveal...So it was Nov 19 2017...should be a low number.
I ordered my Founders Feb 2019. I assume the founders will come up for fulfilment first based on history.
You ordered 2? Will you adopt me? I'm potty trained!
At the Semi-Truck reveal! You can actually see me & my wife in the "Tesla Commercial" as the last 2 people taking Roadster rides!
I'm "Yaaaa!" & my wife (the only woman in the car) is "Holy Shi...!"
Wait, @ggr how did you know about the Roadster BEFORE the Semi-Reveal? There were only 300 people who knew (I was NOT one of them) and it was very top secret! In fact, when the semi-reveal was over, I turned to my buddy and said, "did that 'blow your mind' like Elon said it would?" ... then Franz came screeching out in the Roadster!
