What's the most you would of put down if the deposit amount was higher to reserve?

The model X was 40,000 to reserve the signature version and the model S was 5,000 just to get a spot in line.

What is the highest amount you would of put down to reserve a spot for the Model 3?

Might have gone to $2000, but would have had to think about it. Probably wouldn't have gone to $5000 for a $35000 car, even if it is a Tesla. $1000 was a no-brainer.

I prolly would have gone to 3k. Maybe more I dunno. But we have a Model S and are all in.

dsvick | 2016年11月4日

$2K for sure, but $3K might have been pushing it.

jschnyderite | 2016年11月4日

I think 2K or so would be max given I needed to lay that money aside for 2 years. If it was a shorter span from unveil to receiving the car I would put maybe 5K down.

I think I would of done 5k only cause I had it avail since I was already saving for another car. Honestly I just assumed hats what it would have been based on previous Tesla reservation amounts and figured even though it's cheaters that's still what theybwouldnhave wanted.

Maybe up to 2,500 since theres no real details or confirmed design of the car. Plus the fact they are getting a two year loan for free to develop the car. Still excited but would like to see a more detailed list of standard features. For 1k I was willing to give it a shot.

Maybe $2,000...

Efontana | 2016年11月4日

Tesla & Model 3 might not exist if the deposit were more than $1000.

bernard.holbrook | 2016年11月4日

$3000; I might have done $5K if it moved me up in the line.

I expected the amount would be $2,500 for Reservation of Model ☰. I was rather overjoyed when Elon announced it would only be $1,000.

Badbot | 2016年11月4日

seems like a pointless question to me. it's $1,000 so move along

jamilworm | 2016年11月4日

I would have probably gone up to $5k. I keep around 10k in my checking account at all times anyway so if I could be sure I could get the money back quickly in an emergency then I'd be fine. The money isn't earning interest anyway.

@Badbot - exactly.

28delayslater | 2016年11月5日

5k. But if they asked for more I would probably do that to. I basically throw my money at tesla as fast as I can

tedirelan | 2016年11月5日

I would have put down $35,000 if I could have had one of the prototypes that day. lol

ccsccs7 | 2016年11月7日

$2,000 would have been quite a stretch for me. I'm in debt payback mode and needed to use a credit card for the deposit (after some consideration). Next year is all about saving for M ≡.

bmalloy0 | 2016年11月8日

My credit card only has a $2k limit, so

andy.connor.e | 2016年11月8日

I would put the minimum down to reserve. Because when it comes time to buy it, i can always put my down-payment on the principal there. I dont have to empty my bank account on a reservation.
