Prices in US were higher than people expected and upset all the US reservation holders.
Prices in Canada were higher than people expected and upset all the Canadian reservation holders.
Prices in UK were higher than people expected and upset all the UK reservation holders.
Hang in there Australia, your turn to gnash your teeth is coming.
60kw reservation holders feel they are getting screwed in the delivery sequence.
40kw reservation holders feel they are really getting screwed in the delivery sequence.
85kw reservation holders are seeing higher numbers getting cars before they even have a VIN.
Even when the car is delivered, the promised Delivery Experience doesn't exist.
And if you pick up at the factory, what is the delivery fee for anyway.
And we're all going to fall off the fiscal cliff and the tax credit will vanish.
All this anguish for a zillion dollar car that doesn't have all the amenities that all the other cars on the road already have standard.
And don't even get me started on the cup holders.........
I think somewhere in that list, every reservation holder who doesn't have their car yet has gotten upset.
HOWEVER, everyone who has gotten their car is in absolute love, and the reservations keep pouring in. And most promising of all to me, has always been the disproportionate number of Roadster owners who jumped back in line to get another Tesla.
Can anyone think of a product that has pissed off so many people while still being considered a MUST HAVE by so many people? (Can't cite Microsoft, that's too easy.) Tesla had to, and did build an an AMAZING car to overcome all the angst that comes with being an early adopter. Can't wait to find out.
