I ordered mine in June - got it December 21. Its hard to compare the early builds vs newer builds because of part shortages and 1st build "snafus" - the wait is just part of the experience of buying this car. While I don't think you will be subjected to a 5-7month wait like the earlier orders I think it will be more in the 4-6 month window. Assigned a vin number is one thing....you need a status code to really know what is going on (see below)...
