Why doesn't Tesla release real numbers of preorders??
There is no way that the number stopped at 373000....
That would mean nobody is remotely interested in purchasing one besides us.."373000"
Most likely orders dropped off precipitously because even very interested people think they will have to wait forever. Orders will pick up if the car is as good as we think it will be and production begins to catch up with the pre-orders.
They might be waiting for the Q2 financial report tomorrow, or they might have dropped. I would expect a lot more pre orders after the unveil part 2, but who knows.
"That would mean nobody is remotely interested in purchasing one besides us"
The reservation count probably hasn't changed much since the 373,000 number was released. Anyone that was interested enough has already placed their reservation. Everyone else is waiting on the 2nd reveal now or for production to start so they have a better idea of when they'll get their car.
What is to be gained by them, giving updates on deposits?
Does any other company announce order numbers for a given model?
