Tesla sets Oct. 15 deadline on new orders to get delivery and full $7,500 tax credit by end of the year
During the third quarter, Tesla confirmed hitting the federal tax credit threshold. This means that buyers can get the full $7,500 Federal tax credit if they take delivery by the end of this year. After that, Tesla buyers will get $3,750 for the first half of 2019 and $1,875 in the second half of 2019 before it is completely gone.
Tesla has set the deadline to get delivery by the end of the year in order to get the full $7500 tax credit on new orders as October 15th, 2018.
Tesla's website has been updated to reflect this as well. This appears to be a hard date and a major dice roll to order afterwards. So if you're planning on ordering a Tesla now's the time. Note this rebate applies to all lines, Model S, Model X, and all Model 3's in production.
Additionally, buyers can get $100 of Supercharging credit when they order here. This was recently expanded to all vehicles as well, even the non performance Model 3.

After that date you will lose out on free supercharging and begin challenging you ability to qualify for the Federal $7,500 credit. The Federal credit will reduce in half for any car delivered after December 31st, 2018. With most new builds taking months to produce and deliver the window is closing in.

Tesla has confirmed that it has hit the 200,000th US delivery threshold. This milestone triggers the phase-out period.
Tesla buyers will lose the full $7,500 credit on new or inventory vehicles by the end of 2018, phasing to $3750 for the first half of 2019 and $1875 in the second half of 2019.
The big push for Model 3 production expedited this phase out milestone. However it appears Tesla intentionally timed the 200,000 vehicle to be sold in July (Q3) as to extend the phase out timeline.
For new and inventory Model S, X, and 3 buyers the federal phase out will look like this, under current rules.
$7,500 On or before December 31, 2018
$3,750 January 1 to June 30, 2019
$1,875 July 1 to December 31, 2019
There’s a new bill in Congress that is attempting to remove the delivery limit for the federal tax credit and replace it with a time limit but it doesn't seems likely to pass at this time.

Elon Musk tweeted that the upcoming Roadster 2.0 is going to have an ‘Augmented Mode’ to help handle all that power.
In typical Elon fashion not much detail was provided. However, it sounds like a system that would take over some of the controls to help manage the available power.
Tesla plans to bring the new Roadster to production in 2020.
