I'm sure the idea has been proposed (maybe even in one of these forum discussions), but I wonder if Tesla is planning to develop a smaller, more economical model in the future. The Model S is amazing and I REALLY WANT ONE but I can't afford it. If Tesla could develop a vehicle in the $30-40K range, I feel like they would sell like hotcakes. I'm envisioning a car that is about the size of a Prius, but that's rear (or all)-wheel drive and not embarrassing to be seen in
I think I have seen virtually every youtube video on Tesla. Their Fremont CA plant consists largely of unused space which hopefully indicates that they plan to bring a mass-production model to the market place. A smaller, relatively inexpensive car that retains the performance and range of the model S would absolutely be my next car
