Today is March 2nd. Hopefully TM started producing Red Color Tesla S. Please whoever gets any information on a first production, please post.

so far, no TtBs for Sig-reservation holders in Belgium.
However, now that Tesla Belgium is a fact, I guess the mails will be send soon.

Considering that the first RED color S TM will start producing April 8, I assume that by the end of April or first days of May all RED color orders will be fulfilled. Unless the spreadsheet that we have is a small percentage of all orders. I personally ask everybody who ordered RED color, please put your information in the spreadsheet that you can find in this thread a little earlier. It will be easier to track a delivery window. Thanks for understanding and cooperation.

Only a small percentage of buyers, especially new buyers, are registered here on the forum, so you will never get full information.

Red color time has indeed arrived. Called CA today over a different issue, and asked the Big Question. Was told that my RED was in the production queue - estimated end-of-line day early May.

# 17282, 85, red/grey, air.

My local Tesla showroom confirmed that their database shows my Red end of line completion date of 4/22. Still have no button or call, but they told me to expect one a couple weeks prior to completion, which seems tighter than what we've been seeing for the last six months.

I have been waiting just shy of four years, now, holding # 884. To add insult to injury, the other local store, Bellevue, has a black on black 60 just sitting there, waiting for a buyer. It arrived for final delivery but the sale fell through. I sure hope I like Red...

I feel your pain, Peter J. I think you must have the lowest red reservation number and the wait must be killing you. Thanks for the update though. I'm #4605 and hope to get mine not too long after yours. My wait is about 2 years since the first $5K deposit!

When I switched to red in end Nov'12, they verbally said around a March/April delivery (My contract still says Nov/Dec'12 - they forgot to update it).

I wonder if Elon's 'big announcement' on Thursday will have anything to do with the red...

Just spoke with my account guy who tells me that a sample red car has been produced and is sitting in their parking lot - quick we need a spy to take photos!!! He says that the color came out fantastic and Tesla is very happy with it.

As for when my car (finalized on Dec 4th in Maryland), he said to expect delivery in the first two weeks of May. Perfect!

I drove by the factory today, but did not see any RED.

I am picking up my car on Friday and will be doing a factory tour. I'll check for any sign of red cars.

So nobody apparently got a chance to take a snapshot of a brand new red in the parking lot. I'm so disappointed. I expected a full group of Tesla paparazzi.

If I get a 'Deliver' button on Monday April 1, do I believe it?

Just spoke to the delivery department. My number is # 14,277. The car is planned to be ready the week of April 22. Sounds promising. The delivery button will be within 2 weeks.

One lucky individual over on TMC reported getting a VIN already for his red.

Could you send a link. I can't find him

I think he is not telling the truth. Or you misunderstood him.

LMB # 17282

Where do you find that number?

I have only an RN number in the 300,000's.

On the Tesla website, under enthusiasts, photos & videos is a set of cars in 10 colors, all shot in same light on lawn.
If real, a good comparison of sig red and new red.

Finalized Jan 18
Was told to expect delivery button within 2 weeks...
Probable delivery end of April...
here's hoping

I received my VIN# by email this afternoon #7773. Expect delivery in the second or third week of April. RED is really here!

@JaneW There's the "reservation confirmation number" (mine is in 300,000s like yours) and "reservation sequence number," which I gather used to be easier to find. I have mine on a printout of the confirmation webpage at the end of the the finalization process, and I can't really find it anywhere else.

Maybe some other folks know where to look for it otherwise.

Tesla is no longer issuing and displaying the reservation sequence number for buyers in the US. I think they still are for overseas. I think they either must have been getting too many whines from people, saw that this number was providing too much information to the public, or just saw it as unnecessary now that orders are getting filled so quickly. The "excitement" factor of the sequence number is now all gone.

Congratulations Dean!!!
You are the first .....
Many wait behind you.
I hope to join you soon

Thanks Celtrog.
I think there are several others with VIN #s, and it sounds like the third week of April will be RED active. Hope yours comes soon.

Can't pull out the individual shots, but here's the photo page:

Yes, can't wait to see some pics from these fresh deliveries!

I just got my "Get Started: Delivery Information Requested... It's time to schedule your delivery." email from Tesla. Finally!

I'm #4605 and my other details are in the red tracking spreadsheet if you're interested.


That is awesome!!!!! Happy for you and I hope to see that email soon too.

I also received my "Delivery" button today. Looks like the next several weeks will be very RED!

I got the email today, as well. I think my number was 2198 (they took it off the website). I've been living this fantasy so long, it's a little weird (and strangely scary) to realize it's about to become reality. I plan on taking delivery at home; I don't have time to go pick it up and I'm not comfortable making its virgin trip start so far from home. There are already several MS driving around here, but I think mine will be the first 2013 red. Time to schedule!
