Our friend placed an order online last Friday at 8.30 pm, showed up at the Model 3 delivery event on Saturday, and got his Model 3 Performance by 1.18 pm.

Why? The waiting times right now are between 6 and 10 weeks (more realistic than before), the federal credit of $1,875 will go to zero at the end of the year, the FSD package is increasing its price by $1k on November 1st, and Tesla changed their order process to request a $100 deposit instead of a $2,500 one (although it isn’t refundable anymore).

As part of what is now a tradition, a lot of fellow owners used their free time to go to a Tesla delivery center and talk to folks waiting to pick up their Teslas on the last day of the year. As an example of these owners’ dedication, TeslaRaj spent six hours on New Year’s Eve giving orientations to new owners until he lost his voice and had to go home. Good job folks ❤️
Here is @tesla_raj giving introductions on how to use your model 3. His wealth of knowledge will be a huge asset to each new owner. This is all a part of the push for a sustainable future. @elonmusk pic.twitter.com/zsPRKcoB5j— Tesla Owners Silicon Valley (@teslaownersSV) December 31, 2019

One of the main struggles that Tesla experienced during Q3 was delivering their cars to their customers (not building them, that was solved during Q3, but actually transporting them). Elon just announced on Twitter that Tesla has secured enough trucking capacity to ensure all Model 3s purchased before Nov 30 can be delivered by the end of the year. One of the metrics that Tesla is working hard on improving is the number of days from factory to customers, since that would increase their cash on hand substantially.
If you are purchasing a new Tesla in Q4 to get advantage of the full tax incentive we would be flattered if you use our referral code to get 6 months of free Supercharging.
