I want a number to save for - or silently slip away from the forum never to be seen again
If you don't mind I edited your poll. We won't be seeing pricing on Model 3 in any shape or form until at least July 28th. Historically Tesla has not put up a configurator until much AFTER a reveal event.
Case in point:
Model X delivery event: September 29 2015. Model X configurator went online April 12 2016!!
I'm not suggesting Model 3 configurator will go online 7 months after the delivery event but don't count on seeing anything until at least the 28th of July.
As for the inevitable question of "how can the first 30 customers before the delivery event configure their car then?" the answer is simple: those fist 30 "customers" are likely to be Tesla founders and some random employees likely under NDA and sent emails to ask them what their choice of colour is (chose from these 5) and what wheels they'd like (pictures attached). With nothing else to chose at first why bother having a configurator online at all??? Same thing applies for those in August (100 or so cars).
No worries at all - Some informed editing is welcome .
I guess I meant base price CAD / EUR ....ETC , not option pricing .
Great initiative! Since 3Q lasts until 9/30, I don't see any reason we could not least see prices by then...
My only problem is, how relevant are they going to be if I can only order late 4Q18 ?
some numbers of a sort
Interesting to note as I read in an article today that the US dollar was as much as 15-20% overvalued vs. most other world currencies and likely to continue to slide in coming months...
I like the thought of $1.25-1.30/€ by late 2018...
Our dollar has been seeing a bit of strengthening as of late. We were at par to USD in 2013 and saw major losses over the last few years. It's made Tesla products really expensive due to them not hedging FX like other car makers do.
Currently the $A and the $CAN are at par so the changes to the US$ rate are looking promising in Oz also.
The CDN dollar has had a great run especially with the .25 point interest rate rise. Currently 1.26 to 1.27. Should save the 6.1 NAFTA duty as well due to battery manufacturing at the Gig 1. Hope the dollar stays strong!
Might get another rate hike in before model 3.... Then again I am going to have to get a mortgage or 2 over the next few months....
I think there is a good chance of another 1/4 point at one of the next 3 meetings (Sept 9, Oct 25, Dec 9). Real estate is cooling slightly but the larger issue in my mind is debt fueled consumer spending.
Awesome, that's another little gem to mine for speculation.....Considering the increased price sensitivity of the average model 3 consumer (aka not rich, but above average income) , I wonder if they will hedge and announce fixed prices?
Whole heartedly agree. The only debt i have is my house and my Volvo xc90, which was only leased because the accountant recommended it since it is leased through my own corporation. To me a house and maybe a car is the only good kind of debt unless you're extremely disciplined or taking on the debt for some legitimate financial maneuver like the Smith maneuver.

I had to google that! Interesting concept. Totally agree with your debt discipline.
