Tesla Already Confirming Early Model 3 Orders

Eager Model 3 fans hit the streets early Thursday morning — or earlier for the brave — to snag a place in line to reserve a Tesla Model 3 without every having seen it before. The $1,000 deposit doesn’t guarantee anything, but serves as a placeholder in regional queues for the Model 3.

When stores opened at 10am local time, customers were eagerly rushed into the stores with applause, cheers, hoots and hollers from excited employees playing along to Elon Musk’s pied piper tune. Thankfully, their faith was well-placed as the reveal Thursday evening showed the car is a work of art, a beautiful blend of modern styling themes blended ever so gently into the Tesla design DNA that has become its signature.

For those that were lucky enough to lock in a reservation or two, the evening reveal was likely an extremely exciting time – I know it was for us, with four reservations. Seeing the handful of variations of the Model 3 that were on display was the icing on the cake for what was a long morning in the sun huddled together with likeminded Tesla fans.

The next step in the process has already triggered for many, as reservation confirmations have already started going out to customers that reserved first thing Thursday morning. While it’s not clear what is being checked before moving the order to confirmed status, one would think Tesla is checking for duplicate orders (whether accidental or intentional), successful payment and for a valid name and address.

Have you already put your reservation in for a new Model 3? If so, did you get 1 or 2? Did anyone attempt to get more? If so, we want to know how it worked out. Let us know in the comments!
