It's Time to Build Your Model S

Apologies if there's already a thread for this, but I just got my notification

It's time to have some fun designing and finalizing your Model S. We have made the entire process available online from anywhere with an internet connection.


The days of having to stop into an auto dealer to buy a car are over. We have made the entire process available from anywhere with an internet connection. You can design your car, request paperwork and even sign your paperwork from the comfort of your home. If you have not designed your Model S yet, you can start right here. If you already designed your car and are ready to request paperwork, just click here to continue the process.


We want this process to be fun and easy so if you have any questions we're here to help. If you prefer to walk through the process with an experienced Product Specialist, just give us a call at 888.771.2505, email us, or stop by one of our stores.

This is a very exciting next step and we look forward to sharing it with you. In just a few short months, you'll be one of the very first drivers on the planet to experience the fun and exhilaration of Model S. Let's get your car on the road!

Now off to make some choices... P779

On My Garage it shows I have RN061821 Model S #320. I called last week and asked when I could expect a call and delivery. The rep told me to expect the e-mail sometime in Sept with a delivery date sometime in October.

Oh, I was thinking you'd let him break it in a bit before you got back, then teach you how to make best use of it.


You'd probably end up getting him to order one of his own, too. Think of the children! Etc.

LOL, but I REALLY want to be the first to drive it. I have never spent anywhere near this much for anything in my life (other then the roof over my families head). In fact, this car is only half of what i paid for my first home in the late 90's. I'm gonna be first, everyone else is secondary... ;)


It's almost twice what I paid for my current house that I bought in the early '70s. Of course, that's not counting all the interest paid on it.


Didn't get the email yet BUT my garage now has the Finalize option.

P1269 - got my notice early last week. All epaperwork done in a day and "vanity plate" already picked out with CA DMV! PLGNFLY (I think the Roadster gang got all the really good ones.)

I got the email at 10:22am PST saying it's time to build!!

got Email today

Congrats ebm. That makes about 2,000 reservations moved to "building" in the last two weeks. Keep us posted about expected delivery times as well.

P2770 - Got my email as well! They are starting to move through the list a full production speed now. About 600 or more numbers got their "time to build" emails this week, it would appear.

#P3122: email received today.

@jscottsanders , P3122? Wow, it is very impressive that you received the email so soon (I know it is never too soon for you). Awesome!

Got my build order today and my #2289.

As I posted in another thread... P3404 and no email today. Maybe next week's grouping.

Posted in another thread- P2884 got my e-mail today, paperwork on the way.

I am p3056 and I received my "It's time to build your Model S" email today (8/14/12). Very exciting!

P3270 got my e-mail today.

The line is moving forward :o)

As posted in the other thread - P 3283 - configured and reserved tonight, just waiting on the papwerwork now!

You're the highest, so far!
Can't just add that to the Sigs etc. to project, of course, as the 40/60 reservation orders are not yet coming out -- I think! If anyone not a 85kWh option gets the email, please post here urgently!!


I got my email today and my design is for the 60kWh version. P2198.

P2452 order, guess it doesn't matter now that 3000+ are contacted! Dec-Jan delivery

So, 3 months from now (mid-Nov.) either all the 85kWh models will have been completed & mostly delivered, or will be tailing off so much that lots of spare capacity is available. Excellent news!

Don't have my confirmed delivery date, but mine is a 60 kWh pack, so we'll see what they come back with.

P2821 contacted today (looks like they did a big chunk today from the above posts).

In the middle of a kitchen remodel and will likely "defer", though it sounds like that just means "let Tesla keep my money until I make up my mind".

Crazy to think that after waiting more than 2 years, my decision is going to have to be to wait some more. Oh well, it'll be here soon enough.

I think you can just sit on it, and at the end of the first month, your delivery date "walks" one day per day. So you don't have to formally defer 6 mo.

My Garage doesn't show an estimated delivery time, however the purchase order contract states 11/2012. By the way, I like that on the contract Tesla put the local showroom address - to get our State rebate (IL), you have to prove that the car was sold to you by an IL dealer, so this does the trick. Assuming there are IL AFV rebate $$ available in the State coffers in Nov. (not a guaranteed thing), I'll apply for the state rebate right away. It's $4k and typically takes about 3-6 months to come through.

On another (off topic) note, in another post it was mentioned the vanity plate that will be ordered. I'm sticking with the specialty EV plates here in IL. For $17.50/year, you can get EV plates that will say 'EL XXX' (or something like that). Normal plates are $99/year and vanity plates are more. Just thought I would take advantage of another EV incentive!

what do you guesstimate will replace that XXX in your case?

#2635 just received my email today. For Dec-Jan delivery.
