Well, not "every time" - at least not every post. The last post with the highest vin was #553 - vin 8225. I think that is the highest vin. I didn't look back a lot of pages to check for higher. It will be interesting to see how many more posts until the next highest vin.
Actually, the post immediately before yours is a new record, complete with a picture of the VIN plate.

Ryan McCaffrey of Ride the Lightning caught a picture of a prototype's VIN, #8370.
Mod Edit: See post #8370 above

Disappointing at how small of an increase that is over the prior record, though, given it's been 3 weeks now since we saw 8230... surely a 9000 or 10000 VIN should have been spotted by now? I feel like Tesla must have shut down production for several weeks in February...

I think this confirms my suspicions regarding using the lull in production to retool for AWD option. Apparently, white interior is also being introduced into the production line also.

I suspect VERY shortly, First Production will include option of white or black interior. I also suspect that Dual Motor configurator will open to Employees/Insiders if it hasn’t opened already.
