A friend and I were discussing the “S” and of course we both would like a Performance 85 with all the bells and whistles - $95K+ (after rebate). I ordered a heavily optioned 60kWh and he a lightly optioned 85kWh. The discussion degenerated into not “wants and needs” but which configuration of “S” offers the greatest value? We both agreed that a 40kWh would fulfill 60% + of our daily driving needs and we both have access to ICE vehicles.
I proposed the base 40kWh “S” ($49.5K) with leather ($1.5K) being the only option. What do you think?
I may order one of these, and sell my 60kWh model when I get it in Dec. 2012 - January 2013. Think about it, the profit I make on the 60 would reduce my cost by $15K (+ or -). My only loss is time, go to the back of the line.
