Hope everyone is going well. I had a question I was hoping I could get some insight for from all of you. About a week and a half ago, my wife and I went on a Model S test drive. We drove in a P90D with 21 inch wheels. I loved the car and was surprised at how comfortable and quiet the ride was considering the tire size as I was always told that the larger the wheels, the rougher the ride. I also thought the car would feel bigger than what it was. I mean, I know it is a big car, but sitting in it, it did not feel that large, especially on the inside in the driver's seat.
Anyway, I got a call today from a Tesla Rep asking me my thoughts about the Model S and I told him that my wife and I liked the car very much and spoke about the possibility of purchasing a Model S. I told him that the Model S is out of my price range and I do not want a CPO as I would like to take advantage of the tax credit. He informed me about the Inventory cars that they sell, where I can get a practically new Model S at a reduced price and still benefit from the tax credit. This option sparked my interested and I told him what I was looking for in a Tesla.
I know that I would not be able to get all the options in the Model S that I would in the Model 3 due to the Model S being a more expensive car. I also told the rep that I doubted he would be able to get me a car with the new front end in my price range, but if he could I would definitely think about it.
My question to all of you is this, would you purchase an inventory model S knowing that some options would be missing but you would get the tax credit or would you get the Model 3? I mean, I know the Model S is the "better" car, I guess it would be cool to have it, I guess it would best to see what he is able to find before I make a decision and also to wait till July to see what the Model 3 will offer and the cost of those options.
Thank you all for your time and options!
