Is anyone out there who has purchased the car prior to the announcement interested in having the ability to sell the car back at 3 years. I am. I am the "early adopter" who took the bigger risk on this company 2 years ago, I helped them get there 2012 sales up by having my car delivered in December. While it has been frustrating to see cars being delivered with rear facing seats that I ordered months ago, I understand there is many kinks to work out when a brand new vehicle is released. They hadn't figured out how the installation for the rear seats should proceed. I can accept that they are doing their best to deliver the seats.
However after contacting Tesla regarding the new financing and learning that basically I am not eligible, I am really frustrated. How can they proceed with annoucement without considering the 4000 or so prior owners. Why not consider a grandfather clause to allow us to participate. We are the biggest advocates for the company, we are their salesman in the community. I have probably given 50 test drives, encourage at least 3 reservations.Had one friend's car already delivered. I feel as though the company has forgotten about me, the pne who dropped 115k on a car with no track record. Maybe that makes me the sucker, but I would hope they would show loyalty to us. Elon should honor his commitment to us "believers" in him, his company, and his car.
