Are you upset that Tesla isn't creating the small-battery configurations in the first batch?
Are you upset that the west coast of Canada doesn't get dibs like the west coast of USA?
Are you upset that foreign countries just have some vague "second half of 2018" expected date?

Just remember, if Tesla had stuck with the original plan, you probably wouldn't be getting a car until 2020!

You are still getting the car two years earlier than you thought you would when you stood in line on March 31!
I know it's hard to wait, but keep that in mind! :)
Tesla revs up production plan for Model 3 cars
Tesla Motors says it will ramp up production of its best-selling Model 3 electric car much more quickly than planned, with a target of producing 500,000 automobiles starting in 2018 rather than 2020.

Tesla 2016Q1 Financial Update
Additionally, given the demand for Model 3, we have decided to advance our 500,000 total unit build plan (combined for Model S, Model X, and Model 3) to 2018, two years earlier than previously planned.

Yeah -- the freaking out is misguided at best. No one could have anticipated a backlog of 500,000 cars. The stress and strain Tesla has placed on itself to satisfy everyone is commendable.
