What I'm saying is that Tesla didn't deliver vehicles in the order in which they were reserved, but instead by those who wanted the most expensive version of the vehicles first. Maybe the deposit got your very expensive top trim version of the car a day sooner than others after having waited 2 years with the deposit having been paid.

Those that wanted the $35k version had a 2 week wait or less once it was made available, deposit or not. Order one now and you can get it in less than 2 weeks, made to order.
