In response to your comments......you're wrong & you're wrong. Plus, who said the deposit was $5k. Actually, there will be some creativity and options associated with the deposit you choose to make.
P. S. Every model S owner knows at least 3 friends or family that LOVES their S, but only want to spend 35-40k for transportation. So, we have ready access to immediate new business, that will be reference business (best kind). Now here's the real kicker, TSLA will be paying a $500 finders fee to model S and X owners for each and every reference prospect that orders. Can you say 50,000 person sales force created overnight, that carries no burden, but the finders fee. :-)
A) it's not an economy car, it's a BMW 3 series replacement/ Lexus replacement, and that crowd will PAY to be at the front of the line. :-)
You mean like they didn't on the model S, and the model X. Poor shorty, life is about to get worse for you. Not to mention, the S is going UP in value, that's an additional PLUS/incentive.
And I'm sure he would say, "may you live in interesting times"! Given your nationality, you should get that. LOL :-)
