I currently have a reservation for a Model X, but I am not sure I will actually take delivery. One thing that worries me is the value of the car after the Gen 3 cars go into production. I can't justify spending so much money for a car/toy that will potentially lose $10k per year in value or more.
But will the falcon wing doors help? I keep thinking about the DeLorean with its gull wing doors. Even after 30 years, everyone still knows exactly what they are, even people who have never seen one in person. I just checked and used DeLoreans are selling for more than their original MSRP. Because the Model X will be so unique, will its value be able to withstand a Gen 3 SUV? Will I be throwing away thousands of dollars just because "I want one"?
