my belief is that the sales potential for the model x will trump the model s. why? because the model s is establishing a reputation for Tesla of quality vehicles. the model X is going to target the SUV/minivan market where there are plenty of cars already priced at $50K. and alot of those suv or mini-van drivers are moms (or dads) who bought it because they need to haul around a bunch of kids. those soccer moms drive around all day taking their kids places, but they dont drive more than 70 miles a day, so it is the perfect vehicle. plus, those gull wing doors - holy cow - that will just ignite envy when some parent drives up and and opens their gull wings in front of the rest of the parents! model x can sell 50k a year in its second year. i hope tesla is able to announce that they are moving the launch date forward. that would send the stock soaring!
great investors need to see the future BEFORE it happens. congrats to the shareholders who already saw this quarter results coming.
I'm afraid the gull wing doors may have been scrapped already from what I have read. Maybe they can make them work properly maybe not. Doesn't matter, when the bugs are worked out and it is finally released, it will be a real crowd pleaser
