To put the Tesla negativity in perspective, there is another poster that refers to parents as breeders, and children as spawn, as if humanity is a blight that should be removed from the Earth. He's basically implied that my daughter has negative value (less than worthless). Doesn't matter to me though, that's just like, his opinion man. Plus, he doesn't get a say in what I buy or how many children I have, so no problem for me.

What I'm saying is that I've learned a lot from people with differing opinions, even from those that assert or imply clearly ludicrous things. JSH comments have been among the more enlightening ones.

He knows a lot about traditional car factories. He has all the right to communicate how he likes, and I exercise my right to ignore all of it.

Go in peace. May you one day buy a Tesla and it is everything you hoped it will be.

That is my experience as well. Nothing is learned in an echo chamber and having respectful conversations with people you disagree with makes a person reflect on why the believe what they believe. Sometimes I change my mind and sometimes I donít. If nothing else the conversation is interesting.

I suspect it would go like this:
Customer: Hello, I would like to order a Standard Model 3 for $35,000

Tesla: I'm sorry sir but the delivery time for the $35,000 Model 3 is 18 months. Would you like to order the Standard 3 Plus for only $39,500? We can deliver it is 2 weeks.

Customer: No thanks, I would like to order the $35,000 Model 3.

Tesla: OK, we will add you to the reservation list. That will be $2,500 and we will notify you when it is time to configure your car.

Then somehow you will never make it to the top of the list but Tesla will call every week or so to see if you would like to order the Standard Plus with a 2 week delivery.


Side Note: After visiting the Model 3 sales page to see if there is a number to call I've noticed you can order today for delivery in 2 weeks. What happened to all those reservations?
I'll bet you $40,000 I can order and receive the $35,000 Model 3 in less than 18 months.
