Talking to a customer yesterday. He is getting his M3 next week. Leasing it and and said filling out the paper work Tesla demanded he understood that he could not buy out the lease at the end (3 years?). Said had to check a box that stated this specifically before could proceed.
It sounded weird to me but thought "hey, at least there will be a lot of used M3 for sale in three or five years"
He said they said no: "Elon & Co will need tons of robo-taxis in the not to distant future and this is the way they will know they will have a bunch of cars ready for autonomous driving taxis."
Makes some sense I guess.
