A first look at the car I’ve ordered

The car isn’t even built yet—this is now estimated for July 2, with delivery about a week later—but I have a picture.

Fig. 1. The picture is missing at least the crossbars on the roof rack that I ordered as an option. There might be other details that will be different but the color (“lunar rock” and no, I didn’t know that is a color) and general form should be right.

I have a vehicle identification number (VIN) and have forwarded it to my insurance agent. But the delay sucks.
