    Is there an estimated timeline from production to delivery? Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Thanks. Is this from your personal experience or from what you've read here in the forums?

    Closer to 4 weeks from production start to delivery. All eastcoast cars are going to Alabama first.

    Combination of both. Mine is taking 15 days. Cars do go through hubs first, as Andrew points out, but it seems like the frequency of deliveries to hubs has gone up with increased production-rate and orders, so I suspect they do better than 4wks these days. In other words, the built cars don't sit as long at the factory waiting for a transportation slot as they used to.

    Either way ..it'll all be water under the bridge before you know it.

    Production only takes 1-2 weeks. But it took 3 weeks for my X90D to be shipped from Fremont to PA.

    Looks like Q3 is going to be a big one.

    My DS sent me an email letting me know my car was in Chicago and that it should arrive in Montreal by Monday. (if there are no issues at customs) Realistically i should be driving my car home by the end of next week!

    my tesla page isn't updated either compared to my friend who ordered model S at the same time then i did.

    I just hope our cars are well built. That's my main fear.

    Friend just stopped by my office with her 90D white Model X today. Delivered yesterday (9/20) Build quality looked superb up close. Everything worked flawlessly. We really can't wait for ours!
