    By my own experience, and a few others on this forum and Tesla's forum, it appears that anticipated deliveries for the next couple of weeks are getting delayed. Anyone have any insight?

    I ordered 4/3/14, confirmed 4/4/14, received a VIN on 4/18/14, with a scheduled delivery of May 22, 2014. Upon my prodding, my DS informed me this morning that my deliver (to Costa Mesa, CA) could be delayed by a couple of days. He said he would have a better handle next week "when my car went into production."

    Given that it seems to take about 2 days to build an MS, and a day to transport to Southern California, it doesn't look like my original delivery date will happen.

    Anyway, just wanted to pick the communal brain of all recent orderees to see if they were experiencing similar delays.

    Scheduled for May 30th delivery.

    Expecting to go into production this week but, as of yet, still sourcing parts.

    No word from DS about anything extraordinary (yet).

    I did notice the delivery estimates on the design studio were recently pushed back by about a month. My first thought was that it's so they can prioritize oversea orders. I don't know if that's related or if my delivery estimated for June 18th would be affected.

    My signature says it all. I am getting mine tomorrow supposedly. Inordinately long time from end of production (May 1) to delivery.

    Details below. They made up a lot of time quickly. The 7-10 days for transport turned into 3 days. "May be a few days late" became 6 days early.

    Ordered 3/31/14 Confirmed 4/4/14 Anticipated delivery date 5/31/14.

    Early on my DS said that the delivery (to Costa Mesa) would be late in May. Last week he was more specific--5/31. This week he said that some have come in a bit early, and I might get mine by 5/30. Of course, I'm hoping for 5/21 or 5/14. Oh, no. That would have been today. So probably I will get my car close to the originally projected date.

    Expecting delivery May 30th, but my car is currently showing a status of sourcing parts. I'm told my car will ship to Texas next week.

    Here's a quick update.

    So my car went into production early yesterday morning. At that point, I also noticed that I had the option of editing my pick-up date from the originally scheduled May 22, 2014 to an earlier date. So...now I'm scheduled to pick up my beauty on Tuesday, May 20, 2014!

    I can barely contain the excitement. Tint and full body clear bra scheduled!

    Ordered and confirmed 3/31/14. Delivery scheduled for Friday, June 6. Still showing Sourcing Parts which based on other posts seems perfectly normal. DS said that some deliveries were coming earlier however he wouldn't know until the car went into production.Working on my Tesla Delivery Playlist now; have the electrician coming next Friday to install 14-50 NEMA. AutoNation is considering the trade in value for my poor old 11 year old BMW (er, I mean perfect-condition fabulous, no faults, dings, or knocks supercar if you're the local AutoNation guy reading!) and I have my financing all set up, ready to sign once we have a final, final number. The stockings are all pretty much hung with care in the hopes young St. Elon soon would be there...

    Mine went production complete this morning.

    Yesterday I'd had the option of a full week earlier delivery but it's since throttled back to May 26th as the earliest date. Drat. A Monday.

    I just got the call this morning informing me that my delivery date for my S85 is being delayed. Ordered and confirmed 3/31 with May 21st delivery date. Got a call last week to see if I wanted to move up my delivery date, so we settled on 3/19. Now they don't know when I can get the car. The DS told me she would call me on Monday with an update.

    I confirmed April 3 for delivery May 21 (S85). Submitted all my paperwork timely to the DS. Did not hear a word, so I emailed him this past Wednesday (one week before scheduled pick up time at the factory). He telephoned a few hours later and said, that they probably could finish the car by the 21st, but Friday the 23rd would be safer.. So, our car got pushed back two days.

    The dashboard changed to "in production" late Thursday afternoon.
