As a Model 3, Tesla Solar and 4 Powerwall owner, I expect to leapfrog all of you! Just kidding. I’m on the Dual Motor list and there’s probably 200-300K people ahead of me for the CT.

A side note…bought the Tesla Model 3 online last June on a Sunday afternoon and notified later that night it’ll be available the next weekend for pickup. Everything went like clockwork.

Based on visibility of the vehicle, Texas and California will probably be first. The Midwest may fill in later since they need to show this thing as a work truck, but I anticipate that after the first two zones.
Tesla isn't able to sell the Cybertruck or any vehicle in Texas, so Texas buyers have to make arrangements after the vehicles are shipped out of Texas. Not sure what that means as far as timelines- will they skip the Texas reservations to get trucks delivered faster to states where they have permission to deliver directly?

Towards the end of a quarter there is inevitably a push to deliver more vehicles and I would bet against Texas reservation holders getting theirs early in the queue. But I haven't guessed right yet and bought both of my Teslas from the website, used, so...

I love how you are asking how can I jump ahead of you guys? Mighty impressive. I learn something new everyday on this forum ;)
I wonder if my place in line remains the same if I change my reservation and opt for the tri-moter instead of the dual.

unfortunately I won’t be able to give you a reliable answer. What makes sense to me is that you are a record in a database and trim is only one field to be edited and I don’t see any logical reason for Tesla to spend extra effort to push you to the back of the line and delay selling one unit of a more profitable trim. However, if you want to be sure, the first place I recommended contacting is Tesla itself. The second place is digging through this site to see if anyone has made that change and see if their reservation number has changed. If You are not completely sure, I would wait to see if they pump out CT2s faster or CT3s then as Crissa suggested upgrade later when you have more info about both.
