Tesla Model 3 Delay

On Wednesday I received an email form Tesla.

Thank you again for your continued support as a Model 3 reservation holder. In the past few months, we’ve made significant progress in production and have started delivering Model 3 to customers in over twenty states.

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. You can log into your Tesla Account to view your current delivery estimate at any time.

Thank you for your patience. We can’t wait for you to get your Model 3.

I can’t wait either! The estimate in my account is Aug – Oct 2018, which is 2 or 3 months later than it was. Quite the wait considering I placed my reservation on October 29, 2016.

It doesn’t look like I can extend the lease on my Ford Fusion, which is up near the end of May. I guess I need to get a second vehicle in the next few months that can serve as a primary set of wheels when I turn in the Fusion.
