    Has anyone received a call from their local Tesla store letting them know that their delivery timeline for the Model 3 is nearing? The Tesla employee wanted to know if I had time to look over my build options online and to call him if I had any questions.

    What do you all make of this?

    Quick facts:
    1. Non-Tesla Owner
    2. Delivery estimate of Nov 2017 - Jan 2018

    How could the Tesla employee say this if the configurator isn't even open to non Tesla employees?? Sounds like some misinformation was given to them. Happens all the time. Call them back and ask them what the deal is and mention the configurator fact to them. Let us know what transpires as I'm curious how someone in Florida would get the call

    I got the "email".

    I suspect it's the starting point of an upsell.

    "Did you realize with attractive financing the Model S is not a lot more and you can have it within 2 weeks and get the full tax credit..."

    I assume they are referring to the 3 build options in the delivery estimator and that it s an attempt to up sell, but would be interesting to see what they have to say.

    Did you ever click "save" on the estimator?

    I wonder if they're actually using our saved choices; we had speculated and hoped but I think we were all somewhat skeptical. If you hadn't clicked "save," that might explain the phrasing and could actually be a good sign that employees are deferring and the estimates for the restofates may move up.

    Then again, since you're here, my guess is you saved and the upsell has reached you as others presume.

    They do keep your preferences in the source code. But I don't know if they are really using it on the estimator.

    I got a call last night to come down to test drive an S or an X so I could experience driving a Tesla. The rep from the local Tesla store (I think it was Topanga) said experiencing the S and X would assist me in getting an understanding of options so I know what to choose for my Model 3 when the time comes.

    Sounds like an S or X upsell.

    Trying to sell an X or S may be a way they try to make the waiting list shorter. So far it seems they got less pushy and they always took no for an answer.
    Tesla could be a lot less cool about it.

    I called the gentleman from my local Tesla store back and he mentioned they are starting to call early reservation holders to let them know that their delivery window is near and that the configurator will probably open up for them soon.
    He also wanted to know if I had any questions about the features/options of the Model 3.
    He did not have any other details about my specific reservation. He did not try to upsell me the Model S or Model X (maybe because I mentioned that I had already test driven it). Overall, not a very revealing phone call.

    Teslarati member Meraquepaso from Florida has been told his car arrives late September. He is not a current owner, yet reserved on. March 29 (he did not specify yet I trust he meant 2016... ;)).

    Intriguing, no?!

    Actually anything that sees cars being delivered earlier than expected is good by me even if I'm a little jelly ;)

    Are we sure he doesn't work for Tesla or another Elon company?

    No, not interesting. fake. reservations were not taken until the 31st- during the day in store for line-standers and that night during the reveal for online orders. If it says he reserved on March 29th 2016 that is not possible unless he is an employee and they were allowed to reserve ahead of the public. If he reserved march 29th of 2017 then he is totally FOS b/c he should be close to 2019 delivery. Since employees were not allowed to reserve before the 31st that we are aware of AND the post did not mention he was an employee anyway, I would be inclined to agree with those who have called this "fake news."

    Reservations for Employees was earlier in March 2016. I can't recall the exact date, but remember something like the 12th or 15th (-ish)

    good to know, that makes sense since they are first in line to get the car. i guess if we are assuming he is an employee then we can believe it
