Tesla delivery process is horrible
I have never seen a more poorly organized, painfully slow delivery process than the one Tesla now has in place.

It takes a week to get the car from the factory to a rail depot in San Francisco. Then it takes more than three weeks to ship the car by 19th-century rail transportation to Birmingham, Alabama. Then it takes Tesla a week to find a driver willing to ship the car from Birmingham, Alabama to Orlando Florida. And then it takes a minimum of three days to drive the car from Birmingham, Alabama to Orlando Florida - a distance of about 580 miles.

So far, those last two steps haven't been completed and it may even take longer.

If the car ever gets to Orlando store/service center, it must sit at the store for at least a day for inspection. Inspection is a good idea but Tesla sells so few cars, why does that require an entire day?

Tesla may make a great product. But the company's logistics are just awful.
