Time To Build Europe

S12 (EU) got his Time To Build email today and configured right away
Expected Delivery: 06./07.2013
Wondering when to expect my TTB-email
P1435 (EU)

In Amsterdam talk March 6, Elon said first European deliveries would be in July.

My father and mother just finalized there car. It Sig. 25 (around that number). We live in Sweden.

I'm so freaking hyped to get the car! I will basically live in it ;) When I've been on events promoting Tesla Roadster and letting people test drive they are stunned and loves it. But the price and design limits the use to people how can have a "fun car to drive". But the introduction of Model S will make a change. People in Sweden will love the car and many people are interested!

Hi Martijn,

Where did you hear that S12 already made his configuration?
I did not receive an invitation yet.

Can you enlighten me on this.



S40x (3 or 6) in norway has finalized at least, latest number i have seen confirmed.

S419 here.

I finalized 7. March - received the paperwork in the afternoon - signed and it was co-signed by friday morning. Status on "My Tesla" changed to:

The Tesla Factory is building your Model S Signature Performance.

Finalized within minutes after opening my tesla page seeing that the status had changed and now possible to build. Just had a quick and cold shower. Received the Time to build email a few hours later.

Estimated delivery July/August - maybe do a "factory pickup" in Tilburg and drive to Denmark on temporary plates

Tesla has had some issues with mail, it would seem. I'm going to check mytesla often when my number range is up. :)

2 S12 is strange, maybe one is R12 or SpecialS12 ?


Last week invitations where at least up to EU-sig419.
With 100 invitations a week...this week all sigs should have been invited.
So, where are the new reports ?
And how a bout the roadster owners who reserved model S, how far up that list are we?

And even more interestingly: see a regular res. (P1 or P-low) to report in the nearby future
Perhaps Volker.Berlin ?

I have EU sig-425 and I only got the finalize button today.

I think Tesla is busy inflating the Q1 results (they seems to crank out all 85 and P85 they can in the US). In that effect, they are also making their best to plug all the holes in the EU signature list with people on the waiting list. But for that they need first to wait for the current sig res holder to confirm or cancel. So that might mean only a few confirmation each week, until closure of quarter. Each Sig res confirmed means couple 10s of thousands Euro of revenue immediately recognizable.

That keeps my hope for the config button flood gate to open in April.

that's superficial, and confused. It makes no difference to results who is or isn't on the sig list. And Sigs confirmed means nothing to revenue. Only deliveries count as sales and revenue.

Finalize button appeared yesterday for EU sig 423. My wife has an issue with the colour of the car. I am trying to convince her that any of the four standard colours are fine (just PERFECT), but she insists that we should get a blue one. The sales rep tells me that the car will be at least a month delayed if we choose a colour that is not part of the standard selection for a signature. This is BAD. Should I try flowers? Anyone?

@arnebjarne: similar problem here. I would like the Performance, but she hates the interior of the P... In your case you could think: what is a month over the lifetime of your car, but still.... Want the car ASAP :-)

Thanks for that info arnebjarne.
That sort of confirms delivery of EU-non-sigs will start in september.
And just got email from Tesla: Dutch-delivery guarantied in 2013, even if you'll make the reservation this month. Spread the word, last chance for a (business) tax-free model S in Holland !!


Looking forward to non-sig info! (aka bump)
Elon says at appr. 6th min.:
- 500 cars/ week now
- half (but then said 40%) of production will go to Europe
That is a serious "catching up" percentage.
And he repeated: EU-production will start in june en first deliveries in july
Assuming after sig-deliveries (july-aug) they will pump appr. 1.000 cars in to europe each month.
If that starts in september, it will not take that long for us anymore (my october forecast is getting more realistic by the day).

I really don't want to get my hopes up for an October delivery but I can't help myself. I think November is fine for me........unless the other 2143 Europeans in front of me would like to be sweet and cancel their orders. There is a "smiley face" from me in it for each one that does!

as said in the 500 p/week thread...

Some minor things that seem to be misquoted.

They are 'Delivering' 500 per week right now, does not have to mean they are producing 500 per week... (they might, but it seems the delivery numbers were lower than the production numbers over the last months, in any event we can not assume it is the same thing)

Second Elon stated on the European, Putting them on a ship in June (to arrive in July), so could be they are produced some time before than.

Elon also stated that all reservations by that date would be delivered by October, so only 2 mo. to "fill up" for the year.

The status on the "My Tesla" page has changed from "The tesla factory is building your Model S" to "Your order has been submitted to the Tesla factory"

Anyone else seeing this?

(And is it good or a delay)

Reply from Tesla:

Hi Ken,
Thank you for your email. This means that your Model S will be one of the first to be produced when the production starts in June.
I am really excited for you, you have already completed what so many other customers are still waiting for.

From now on, it is only about reading about Tesla and the Model S online and telling your friends the great news that you will be receiving your Model S as one of the first in Europe :)

Have a wonderful weekend and I will stay excited for you as well :)

@ kseitzberg

What is your reservation number? Signature obviously.


Nice uplifting storyline from Tesla UK, but I think they just added this as status.
The Building your models S sounded to much like they were actually already building the thing and this was not really the case.

This new added status would better reflect the step before that. But that is just my interpretation might be way off ;)

My tesla page has also changed today from "building your Tesla" to
"your order has been submitted to the Tesla Factory"

Probably your car will be on one of the first boats leaving in June or so for delivery in July or August. At a guess.

Tesla Belgium is a fact... Hope to see the first TTBs soon....
