My understanding is that Tesla assigns the model year to the year of manufacture. In the olden days a car coming out in September would be designated the model for the following year. My question is, if given the option of having my X made and delivered in November or December am I not better off putting off the purchase until 2016. I would hate to lose a whole year's worth of depreciation after having the car for only a month or so. Depending on how fast they are produced this might not be a question I have to worry about. Mine might not be made until next year anyway. If I ever decided to sell my X, I know you can tell people it came out late in the year of 2015 but NADA and Kelly Blue Book don't distinguish that way. Just thought I would ask if anyone else had thoughts on this issue.
