S is infinitely nicer looking, same performance, etc

regardless of how much money you make, you gotta kinda feel like a bozo when you're driving around a 100k+ model 3..

To get the same performance level/range on the S you gotta pay $160k+... that's more than just a bit more lol

I'm assuming the Model 3 performance versions will perform close to an M3, which is ~100k with a bunch of options.

the S is getting long in the tooth (6 years old is basically dinosaur in BEVs but I admit it still looks plenty modern)

anyone who's willing to wait another 18 months for the infrastructure to catch up some more should cross-shop the P-car Taycan

its specs just announced today: 600hp, 500k range...to even think of the pedigree that will trickles down from the 919 Hybrid...dear lawd

Any thoughts on buying a used slightly older Model S? doesn't seem like that bad of an idea...

if you don't mind the pre-facelifted model S, low resolution screen, 3g connection, you should always check out the used one from Tesla. It seems the battery can last quite a bit of time.

was thinking of the slightly later models with LTE at least generally those you can have with supercharger, better screen etc

As long as Tesla doesn’t go belly up you’d think the long term support for their cars should be good.

Most of the people I know with the S have them on lease, and pretty much all of them are the type to baby their vehicle, garage kept with the 220V chargers in place etc. if you can buy used lease returns I’d think the cars available are probably in pretty decent condition

Neighbour has a Model 3, said that 'it is a magnet for problems'. One owner's sentiment ... might only be his experience ... might be indicative of Model 3's ... ?? For what it's worth.

Need to change leadership. Co is too valuable for the EV movement to go chapter 11. Run it like a regular co. Valuation should be about 1/3 of what it is now.

Musk is a nutcase so who knows, I guess it depends on how independent the company is from him.

So instead of trucking a load of cars wrapped in plastic (which I assume could be recycled) to the dealer, they want to send individual trucks to each customer? How exactly is that more environmentally friendly?

Tesla truck
and who knows maybe it's a short detour to the lot
you can also argue the buyer has to somehow get to the lot in the first place

In fifty years when I'm old AF, will early model Tesla's be considered vintage and worth a fortune?

I think PDI is to cover the shipping of the car.

I figure all Vancouver's Tesla are shipped by truck given how many truck loaded with wrapped Teslas I've seen on I5.

It literally stands for pre-delivery inspection... that’s why it’s a freight + PDI charge.
