    I did get this update earlier this week:

    "As we work hard to meet demand, we wanted to let you know that your estimated delivery timing has been adjusted to a slightly later window. "

    I cancelled my day 1 reservation last month. Delays did play a factor, as well as the fact that the newest addition to our family is a Labrador Retriever. I'm still thinking my next car will be a Tesla though!

    I can sort of sympathize with the wait, wait, wait. It isn't a Tesla, but back in August of 2014, I put a grand down on a 3 wheeled Elio. www.eliomotors.com/ Still waiting. Waiting. Waiting. It was supposed to go into production in '15, then '16, then it's been pretty much radio silence.

    I’m (still) not concerned about the timing, other than I want to buy while the $7,500 federal tax credit is still available.

    The one item I didn’t like on the 3 was the door handles, though I’m sure I’ll adapt. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, google it.

    I am stating the obvious and may have already been mentioned on this thread. Collecting deposits for many months ahead of delivery provides Tesla with much needed cash flow. Very smart move by Tesla.

    There were multiple articles written about this in 2016. Yes, it’s obvious.

    I saw a white model 3 today next to a modell S. Model 3 looks quite a bit smaller but it still looks good! DH has a reservation. Supposed to be this April but got the same delay notification. Anyone knows when the federal tax credit expires? Hopefully he will get the car before it expires.

    There’s just under a foot difference between the models, more rear seat headroom in the 3, half the trunk space, etc.

    Fed credit is good up to 250,000 cars shipped by Tesla. There are some estimates out there re how many they’ve already shipped, but nothing accurate. After 250,000 it goes to $3,750, etc.
