Would you like your car this year email

P446, just got this email (not sure why you would not want it this year, I already responded yes):


Would you prefer Model S delivery ASAP or in 2013?

Our factory is working day and night to produce Model S. We are now beginning to contact customers who are likely to receive their car during the balance of December. As we do so, we are finding that some customers prefer to wait until 2013 to take delivery. We are fine with that, but want to know it now so we make sure we are focused on producing cars in December that people definitely want to have delivered by the end of the year.

Therefore, we are contacting customers that have a very good possibility of their Model S being available for delivery this year to see if they are ready to take delivery ASAP or if they prefer to wait until 2013. For those owners who are ready to take delivery between now and the end of the year, we will expedite the final steps to produce your car and schedule delivery.

Please let us know your preference right away:



60kw+air #3587

Finally the delivery button showed up under My Tesla so I now have a delivery estimate of Dec. 12th - Dec. 26th. Woot! Already have the 19" winter tires paid for and waiting at the service center.


85kw+air+performance. Got the delivery estimate of 15th-31st as well. Seattle. Woot Woot!

Wow, are one ahead of me! Except I'm across the boarder in Vancouver and have a estimate of Feb/ sad.

I got the email too, and yeah I don't think it has to with revenue profits. We know (since the reduced production esitimate announcement) that they were only ever going to produce 85kwh + air suspension cars this year anyways. Understanding that, I don't understand how this can be about money. It's the same

My guess is that they were finding a number of their customers who preferred to wait for delivery until the next calendar year, and shuffling up the production line over and over is probably inefficient if there are a decent amount of people deferring.

It makes sense to get a list from customers of who wants the car ASAP and who actually prefers to wait, and then create new sequencing based off of that.

So now I'm cautiously optomistic that I will be driving the car around Christmas.

I still think you're misunderstanding the rebate. How much you have actually remitted is irrelevant. It doesn't matter if you've paid off your complete 2012 liability or none of it. It only matters if the total is over $7500 (if less, that's your cap). You'd get a check for any net overpayment.

Wnen you get on the 2012 dlivery list, do they email you and change the Dashbord? Where on the Dashboard? Do they change the status listed there?
Just in case, I got the Pen Fed loan approval at 1.49%.
Now if my garage were ready! I would be much happier... figuring it,P7214, wil be here this year.

I'm kind of curious to know how many people that got this email got a subsequent delivery window on their dashboard. I'm p4863, and now suddenly have a delivery window of Dec 18-31. I have a feeling a lot of people have gotten similar windows, and given the inconsistencies in delivering within windows in the last couple months I don't know if I should get super excited or not...?

I'm a big supporter of the Tesla mission and a stock holder. But this "delivery before 2013" ordeal seems a bit like another protean Tesla maybe/maybe not situation...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and getting my finances in order. But I'm doing it with a healthy dose of skepticism.

I got Dec 15-30, i'm P8538. looks too good to be true.

I'm p 8,888. Got my window from Dec 15-31st. I was originally scheduled for feb/march delivery. Time to call the banker and electrician.

Found the button on the My Tesla page. Clicked it and filled out the info. Got an email-


Estimated Pickup Window
Dec. 15th - Dec. 31st

Pickup Location
Dania Beach
1949 Tigertail Boulevard
Dania Beach, FL 33004

P7214 and no change on my dash!
85kwh nonperf pano pearl air 19" tech
why have I not been called for this year?
even delivery at factory has not helped
they asked, I said yes,....and nothing happened

#2770 Regular 85K active air. I got the email and responded immediately and emphatically, but I've got no "finalize" button. In Denver, but it appears shipments are getting out to places other than the west coast, so I would think Denver would be a nice easy place to drop off my car. Not financing or trading in anything, so I would think that, if Tesla's looking for clean and easy transactions it can close before 12/31, I'd be getting the frigging button.

#6873 - I got the email on Thursday and just checked my dashboard. Delivery is between Dec 15 and Dec 31. Trying to stay calm....

Yes for 2012 of course! But my delivery window is Dec 23- Jan 6. Yikes!

I replied right away also, P2926, grey performance basically loaded, and no change in my dashboard. I am wondering if delayed or cancelled orders are being matched to identical configurations with higher reservation numbers.

Also noticed snow tires now sold out. Darn it!


With folks in the 8k range getting their deliveries, I would have thought that others like me in the 12k would at least get a config email

Brian H,

But isn't the $7500 a tax credit, not a rebate as you state? It was explained to me that if I still owe taxes for 2012, then I get credit for what I owe up to $7500. So if I owe say $2500, i get a credit of $2500, and the balance of the $7500, which is $5000, I never get to get to take advantage of again. What am I missing?

So since my taxes are likely all paid up, and I may even get a return for over payment, I would not be able to use any of the $7500 available credit. Right? Thanks

Got my Delivery button today and also call from Tesla. I showed up as a Dec 15-31 window, but the way it was explained was that I should expect to see the car very early January. If the car is paid for and on the truck by end of year, then it will be a 2012 sale, so I can claim it on taxes this year. Very excited to be getting the car a few months earlier than expected, though I wish the garage I'm putting on was going to be done before the car shows up.

@Velo1 - My understanding is that as long as you owed a TOTAL of at least $7500 in taxes, then you get to take the full credit. So if your total tax bill was $10,000, but you've already paid in $9000, you would get the full $7500 credit (and a refund), would not be limited to just the $1000 owed when you file.

^Thanks for the clarification. There does seem to be confusion on this credit, not just by me, as I've seen some discussion indicating others have the same impression as I expressed above.

^^ I found a good explanation, and I was incorrect originally, bummer, as I could have had my car a month or two earlier.

Here is the site of as clear an explanation as I have seen:

With all these deliveries I would love to just have a time to config email

Brian H and Bobinfla - thanks for the clarification. I revisited my email from Tesla and tried clicking "yes" to which I was taken to my Outlook to respond with the email about financing and trade-in. We shall see if this overrides my previous "No Thanks". Man, do I feel foolish, but perhaps things will work out for 2012 - stay tuned.

E60 50: I think you are under estimating your wait. They have taken a few 7k and 8k 85kw air suspension to maximize 2012 deliveries and revenue. After the first of the year they will go back at start on
reds with any battery
non air Suspension
Then and only then reservations in the 12k - 13k range may or may not get in ahead of the Europeans.
Sorry to be a wet blanket but I think realisticly you are still looking at May/June.

Tornado -

Congrats - #5462 here, also in Seattle!

So now I'm curious - What options did you get?

Mine is 85k Performance Black/Black Interior, Lacewood, Grey 21" Wheels, Pano Roof, CF Spoiler, Air Suspension, Tech Package, Sound Package, Twin Chargers, Paint Armor.

Pretty exciting to see all these delivery dates going out, it's gotten me very excited that the waiting is nearly over. But I'm bummed that I have not received a call or button yet. Sent my first inquiry about timing a day before the mass Dec/2013 email (To which I replied yes when I saw it an hour or so after it was sent) and they said they'd try for December but it may not happen.

Congrats to everyone getting the dates though, what an awesome gift for the season!

Got the email, said "yes", delivery tomorrow! #610

P8282. Got my email and I answered yes right away. Thanks to stevenmeifert for the heads up on the dashboard. I clicked it and was pleasantly surprised to find a delivery button. I clicked it and at the end I got a dec15 to dec31 window. Cool!

I got the email too. P4051, 85 Perf Air. Unfortunately I'm traveling 12/20-1/3 and couldn't say "yes I want to Dec delivery", although I definitely want it asap. Now I'm worried that I won't see it until March, even though my most recent estimate was late January. Seems like I let a buch of higher production numbers jump ahead of me. Pretty frustrated.

Said yes to 2012 and will have home delivery. P2348

We got the e-mail & said "yes"! Now we are running around arranging financing, since we are moved from a Feb. 13 - Mar. 13 delivery to a hopeful Dec. 15 - 31.

We only live about 30 minutes from the Fremont plant & will take delivery there. Looking forward to a factory tour.

#7729, 85 KW, Suspension, Pearl White. We have already named our car: Sir Costalot!
