Finally did it! I've placed my reservation for a Model S. Test driving the Roadster was the final straw...these cars are amazing. Oh, and I got a jacket to go with my reservation...
You should not delete the R list; they are Model S reservation holders.
I think you were confused by the recent mass switchover of Canadians to the S list. They made a special one-time offer when they launched the Signature in Canada, for existing reservation holders to switch over without having to immediately up-front the extra $35k.
Douglas3 - Thanks for clarification.
Message I got was "Your reservation sequence position is ... of the Roadster Friends/Family (R) reservation list. This is a special list for those who are owners of Roadsters, and your car will be delivered a bit earlier than the general production Model S.".
I reserved a standard (ie; non-signature) model S.
Sounds like 3 lists to me.
Yes, in deed. Thanks for the clarification.
If anyone is interested in reading the complete 50 page Morgan Stanley report that sent Tesla shares up today, you can find it here:
So here's a thought to consider. IF the Signatures are first at the 300 mile range then they will work on the 230/160's. Where does that put you if you are a Roadster owner? Especially if you are looking to get a smaller range?
I would imagine that most Roadster owners are heading for the 300 mile range anyway but just the numbering system used and how they plan on doing deliveries is rather complicated and will be interested to see the end result.
How come no activity here in the last week or so? Anyone know if Tesla has gotten up to 4K reservations yet?
@taichicali - I was thinking the same.
Has anyone reserved a Model S with a higher reservation number than listed below:
Here is an updated collection of the numbers posted by people, so take it with a grain of salt.
US S 249 (March 23, 2011) P 3,446 (March 25, 2011) R 218 (January 2011)
Canada S 69 (March 24, 2011) P 143 (March 9, 2011)
Europe/Asia S 55 (January 18, 2011)* P 448 (March 28, 2011)
China P 1 (March 23, 2011)
Australia P 17 (January 21, 2011)
S = Signature Series (Model S) P = General Production (Model S) R = Roadster
* = On March 1, 2011, a Tesla member posted, "Got the following info from Tesla some days ago: In Europe they have reduced the Signature down to 500 and approximately 70 have been reserved." While 55 is a confirmed/posted reservation number from this forum, the 70 has yet to be verified by the actual European reservation holder.
Grand Total Reservations for ya.
3913 US Reservations alone
4646 Grand Total ... So we are nearing 5000 reservations which if the pace for reservations continues, then they will surpass the total amount of cars they plan on producing in the first year (5000 units in 2012).
There is another thread where we have a guesstimated tally of how many reservations will be made before Signature 1 rolls off line.
@michigan probably not all users are aware of the feature to click the "## new" link displayed in the thread list. working your way to the last page of this thread can get lengthy... I suggest to continue your fabulous listing in the New Reservation Holder thread, it's just 20 posts...
One of my favorite things is logging on to this site just to read this thread to see how many new reservation holders there are. It might be a good idea to just start a new thread titled "Reservation numbers."
@VolkerP That's a good idea, but I prefer to start a new thread.
@masterjrm Good idea. I'm starting a new thread titled "Model S Reservation Tally."
FYI received email confirm on Monday April 11th US order #3579 for non Sig model S
I got my reservation number MODEL S #346, I live in Belgium and just wonder if we can have a split of the reservations per country? cheers Vincent
There is a thread "Model S reservation tally" that splits them by region.
Did mine at the Seattle store (gave them the production down payment, then wired the Signature balance to Florida)
Seattle cheque on Saturday, wire on Monday, reservation # came by phone Wednesday.
Canada Signature #77 - ME!
