Or the fact that the CT will have basically its own factory, or that that factory isn't even completed yet. I'm mostly concerned with savings timelines, and I'm expecting about 2+ years for me at this point since I ordered so late.I should also be explicit about some possible side effects.
Given the above possibilities (and probably some more) it would be pointless to compare 2 order numbers and make any serious conclusions about the order in which they might be filled. Especially if the numbers are somewhat close.
- There may be some holes in the numbering sequence that do not correspond to any order of any vehicle.
- Like the example above, there may be orders placed that get numbered out of order. So its possible to place a later order but still get a lower sequence number.
- If there are holes in the sequencing, it is rare but sometimes a system will go back and fill those holes at a later time.
- As has been mentioned multiple times in the past, the current sequencing number system appears to be shared with other Tesla model lines. So to at least some extent, the numbering system cannot be relied on to get anything resembling an accurate count of CyberTruck orders.
- Also, it may be that the numbering system used for online orders is/isn't shared with orders made at Tesla show rooms, sales phone calls, fleet orders, or other possible ordering mechanisms.
- It is possible that a single order might have been made for more than a single vehicle. The ordering website seems to limit each CyberTruck order to a single vehicle. But especially for fleet sales there may be a way to order multiple of the same vehicle on a single order.
And this doesn't even take into consideration any of the ways that Tesla might prioritize the actual production and shipping of orders.
But in typical childishness.... Is mine bigger than yours?
