There's a lot of speculation that, in addition to the "color and wheel size" limited configurability, the early cars won't be available with the "base" battery pack size. Estimates of 70-75 kWh packs are common for the larger initial pack. If that's Elon's plan, wouldn't it be a stroke of genius to price that pack at $2,495 and announce a projected EPA number of "at least 275 miles"? The number $37,495 just has a certain familiar ring to it, doesn't it?
