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

P6918 got my email today at 12:05 Eastern Time.

The official projections (ramp-down of the ramp-up, etc.) are SEC-conservative. I think there may be a fair chance they will be exceeded. It's starting to look that way.

6484 got email today and I ordered! Feb/mar delivery estimate

P6719 Got my email this morning at 10:07am MNT! Feb/Mar delivery estimate!!!!! WOOOO HOOO!!!! Celebrated by taking a test drive!

Just received my time to finalize notice. P7304.

Just got mine too. But I'm deferring it.


"It's time to build" they tell me! Just a few moments ago. P#7294

Just got my notice it's time to build....
Holy Cow!
I am so psyched!
Help- get the armor or not to get the armor?! Any one have it on a white or pearl S? Does it ruin the look of the white cars?
I am still guessing March for delivery.

@mitrabbit - armor on white has been discussed elsewhere on this forum (can't find it right now), but general consensus is a no-no. I'm not getting it on my Pearl White, and there's even a recommendation from TM somewhere on the forum to avoid it. You can always get it done afterwards by a 3rd party if you decide you really want it.

Wow, already sending emails at least as high as P7721! At this rate I may get mine next month - #10,888

What did I forget?

mitrabbit: décor accents?

"It's Time to Build Your Model S" #7351 came today. I cant remember the last time I was this excited by an email, if ever.

Got my "time to build" e-mail 9:29 am (Pacific time) on Oct 4. Will do the paperwork at the local store tomorrow. Very surprised and excited about this e-mail. #7660

Thanks Longhorn92

Did forget decor accents which is piano black

Got wife's approval on configuration and now need to understand if I need to order twin chargers now or can they be added later as needed.
Open to ideas. I will be either driving 30-50 miles a day, or taking 100 to 3000 mile trips on occasion. Then I am thinking SC stations. And my home has solar to offset my night charging with solar credit back to the grid during the day.

Hope these thoughts/ questions are not to far OT.

Finalize tomorrow at the Menlo Park show room.

Rabbit: only reasons for dual chargers is if you plan on using the high power charger and for resale value.

Since what you've said indicates you won't be using the high charger (which is NOT the supercharger network), I'm leaning towards a no on dual charging.

@Vawlkus: only reasons for dual chargers is if you plan on using the high power charger and for resale value.

Not precisely true. You can also benefit from the occasional j1772 charger out there that is > 40 amps if you have dual chargers. There aren't many (yet), but they do exist. And I'm thinking there will be more hotels with chargers as time goes by, which will possibly have high enough amperage to justify the dual chargers. And on multi-day road trips, even with superchargers available at intermediate points I'm assuming I'd be charging overnight at hotels.

Sorry, that should have said "higher power chargers". I couldn't remember which chargers would require the duals and which wouldn't. :P

Glad the rate is ramping up -- at this rate, I should get my notice (P9358) within a month :).

Regarding the dual chargers, I plan to get them even if I don't expect to use more than 40A normally -- I want the option, particularly when travelling, and the cost isn't much compared to everything else.

bump. Seems like an awful lot of people have received this notice in the last week or so. anyone later than #7721?

#6332 - got my email Oct 2. Delivery estimated for Jan / Feb.



Got my email Oct. 1 and went to the showroom today to place the order. Blue, tan interior, pano roof, 60 kwh. Delivery estimate Jan./Feb. Blue looked much different in real life. Almost black.
