I really wish Tesla would give us an estimated delivery date, even if it's a six-month window, for our Model 3 based on our reservation number and location. Since I have a Model 3 reserved it doesn't make much sense to purchase a vehicle to own it over a relatively short timeframe, thus a lease is the better option. Of course the issue with that is that it's impossible to deduce whether a 24-month or 36-month lease would lead me into my Model 3 delivery.
Beginning a 24-month lease then not having a Tesla ordered at the end would leave a customer with very limited options if the reservation is to be retained. Tesla does offer the ability to have the car delivered up to six months out from the order date so that a customer can make arrangements, but I am a bit worried that a 36-month lease would be too long and being on the East Coast I really am torn as to when to expect my Model 3. My heart certainly won't be in whatever car I lease as I await my Model 3 but it's a bit of a necessity.
