i have opened a dedicated bank account for my purchase of a gen 3, i have decided to set aside 50k over four years, each week i try and beat my "minimum payment" (the minimum amount required to save 50k over four years) currently banking some where around 1/2 a percent of purchase price per week! anyone eles fall in love with the model s only to come to the relisation they really cant afford it? i really cant wait for a sneek peek of the gen 3, so i can make a chart with a picture of it, and run a line underneath it with 0, - 100%, so i can visually see the progress of my savings every week. so, when does everyone here estimate we can put down our deposits for a gen 3? im guessing right around the launch of the model x in late 2014, with delivery 2017. i believe there will be three options base, base +, and performance.
p.s have been reading in other threads that some people believe that the gen 3 will be made of steel instead of aluminium, can anyone confirm or deny this? i havent read it anywhere eles but on this forum (speculation/rumour?) anyone got a link?
