I believe the 2017 is actually available in all fifty states but you have to order it in states like Texas. If you order from a Texas dealer you should be able to get the rebate. If you order it will probably take about twelve weeks to get the car.
There are disadvantages to waiting for the rebate and ordering a car. You won't be able to haggle over the price if you order. Even with the rebate you might be able to get a 2017 for less if you find an overstocked dealer out of state.
I went out of state for my 2017 because I didn't see a lot of value in waiting. You should be able to ship a FFE from anywhere in the lower 48 for under $1k. 2017 inventory around the country is building so we should start to see 2017s soon if you really want to buy off the dealer lots in Texas.
