Anyone else in the same boat as me? I'm a huge Tesla fan but those flurry of Musk tweets are making me seriously reconsider my reservation. No AWD or performance variants of the car for a year? They are building the low demand RWD version first. Not only that, but it sounds like no HUD and the only display will be the touchscreen with the speed in the corner.
What does this mean? Anyone who wants a more premium model 3 is likely to have to a) wait at least another year b) lose any chance at the full rebate c)have to extend their current car possibly longer than they were expecting d) or settling for a lesser car than they had hoped.
The timing of this and the discontinuation of the Model S 60 is definitely a ploy to push people out of the 3 and into the S.
