Elon Musk delays Model S Plaid delivery event one week to June 10 to allow for more tweaks

Refresh plaid

Last week CEO Elon Musk announced the automaker was going to hold a special Model S Plaid delivery event at the Fremont factory on June 3.

Unfortunately that timeline, like many others recently, was a little optimistic. In a tweet last night, Musk said the car still needs some more work and the event has been pushed back one week to June 10.

Whetting our appetites even more to finally see the car in action, Musk said the car “feels like a spaceship.”

Tesla was originally hoping to begin deliveries of the new Model S as early as March after shutting down the production lines for a retooling in December. What was originally supposed to be a three week shutdown turned into well over two months.

The Model S Plaid will be the fastest production car ever (until the Plaid+ comes along) when it finally hits the roads next month. It will have a 0-60mph time of under 2 seconds, and can finish the quarter mile in a record 9.23 seconds.
