I'm about a year and a half away (March 2017) until the lease on my Acura RDX runs out and I'm already car shopping :)
I've been pretty interested in / focused on the Porsche Macan S / Turbo but yesterday I ran some #'s and the Turbo compared to the Model X are within just a few thousands of each other (price wise) - plus, the whole not having to buy gas and our electricity is pretty cheap thing.
That said - I don't want to pay a monthly loan / lease on 2 cars for myself (and the wife would be pissed about that) so I have a few questions if anyone has any insight into the matter.
1 - If I reserve now(ish) and my Model X becomes available before my lease runs out - do I need to buy when mine becomes available or is there a way to say give me a few more months until my lease runs out and I'll pick it up?
2 - if that's not the case - once they start shipping to customers and theres an idea of how long they take to produce - try to gauge how far I'm in line compared to production and reserve then?
3 - With the turbo on the Macan and the P90D on the Model X I'm obviously interested in some power / performance - do owners of the P85D find they use the power on a regular basis or is it just a i can afford it / want something fast so why not? Any problems controlling the P85D in states with (heavy) snow (Western NY) ?
