    A little less than half of all of the deliveries of the Tesla Model S's so far went to customers in California. With half of 2013 still ahead of us, about 5,000 (or maybe even 6,000) Tesla Model S's have been delivered already to customers in California (including the deliveries in 2012).

    But we have to keep in mind that in the second half of 2013 the Tesla Model S's for Europe and Asia have to be manufactured and shipped and delivered as well. So, the deliveries to customers in the US will be less than they were in the first half of 2013. But all will be different if Tesla Motors decide to increase the production capacity (to a weekly production of 800?).

    On the Tesla Motors forum, in the thread "Norwegian Deliveries", j.gjerde just posted that he received an email from Tesla Motors on July 4th, 2013:

    Mail from Tesla July 4th;
    "There is no delay in Model S deliveries, all we did is that we will start a bit later instead of July in August, but this wont affect your Model S delivery.
    As we are going to ramp up production and delivery very rapidly. So you can still expect your Model S in September – October."

    If this is true than this is very significant BREAKING NEWS, I would say. Right?

    Than they might have decided to be manufacturing the Tesla Model S simultaneously for both the US and Europe. And more importantly, this might be happening in 2 separate production lines as well.
    That would be great news, in many ways, I think.
