Also, here it used to say Available Q4 as well. Don't have the before shots.

not sure if it matters that your "shortcode" shows - not sure if that is an privacy issue Joe?

I believe I have saved shots of previous configurations showing Q3 & Q4 and currently 'Later Availability' but not sure what difference it will make for us. I originally asked this question in June but no one has an answer. Having the delivery promise date change almost with every passing quarter is frustrating but the reality of being an early customer of new technology.

Ooops. Good point. I'm not able to edit at this point. Maybe take that one down for me?

Thanks.

If any of you reach out to your sales advisors, let me know what they say. I did reach out to Lucid PR, but I doubt they will comment.

Can you just check your reservation confirmations again and see if there is a change?

No change since yesterday. Meaning, it still does NOT have any mention of Q4 availability.

Now, the only two options in the configurator when loaded with my reservation that show any availbility descriptor are the vanilla sound system and metal roof - both "later availability". No longer anything about any specific quarter.

Yea, but main page does show Q4.

Yes, and it seems from the articles that came out this week that at least as of that media event, they were still telling reporters "by end of year" for both Pure and Touring. I wonder if they just want to take away the expectations from any individual reservation holder of when they might get their car?

Did you call your sales rep to ask about the date removal?

To be honest, I have no idea who my sales rep would be? I've never been assigned any specific person, except the person who reached out to schedule a test drive. But I wasn't certain whether she is my actual SA.

Just email them and someone will respond and that most likely will be your SA/DA.

I looked up my reservation yesterday for the Pure. It listed 4th quater availability for AWD, later for rear only. I am waiting to see estimated range figures for each before making a final decision.

Posted this in another thread. Looked up my Pure reservation, same page as joec posted. Under all wheel drive it listed available 4th quarter. Rear drive only “later availability”. I will want to see range data for each before deciding.

Interesting. So the Pure still says "Available Q4" but the Touring doesn't say anything?

I did reach out via the Contact link to say I was just curious if they could enlighten us on the reasoning behind this change. No response yet, but I'll report back if I hear anything.

Okay. So I heard back from my SA already. Pretty impressive response time for a non-emergency inquiry from a Touring reserver.

She says there has been no change to the Touring schedule. Availability is still slated for Q4. No info on the change to the web site, though. I'm guessing only the web team knows why that change was made? Or at least, the SAs have not been informed of any reason that would have changed.
