Configured earlier today, got a VIN assigned within an hour -- anyone else seeing this?

Ya got lucky! Possible that you ordered at just the right time. Certain configs seem to get matched with vins sooner. Your vin could be changed though so keep an eye on it.

Subject says it all. I was ready to wait another month for a VIN ... unless I am misunderstanding something about VIN assignment?
You got lucky with the right configuration at the right time. I got my VIN in 30 minutes with mine and the car was in Florida within a week!

Black, 19" wheels

Hopefully it isn't one that someone else rejected delivery on ...
Black 19" = The Elon Configuration. Well—you, me, and Elon.

Black 19" just happens to be the least-chosen config. You can also think of it as the most rare if you'd like. When I got my invite 3/22 and ordered it, I got an "insta-VIN" on the next page and I got my car about a week later, 3/31. Don't think that it's no good because no one else wanted it; mine was FLAWLESS and I love it.

Wow I had no idea this was the least chosen config. How did you know that? Clearly we have excellent taste ;-)

My theory is they built a lot of cars in March, but didn't want to sell them to cross the 200k mark until 2Q. So they have cars ready, just waited to get them to people. Now that it's April, if they have a match ready, they'll assign and send out.
