Interesting article.......don't know if it was a "rush to Press" for the original text of the 'Descriptors' in time for the Model 3 reveal and the resultant change to the new description or if in fact the demand as stated has driven the change after Tesla has "re-assssed." I do agree that a lot of the options will be hardware Standards/included in the base version with an Optioning/UpgradeCost to turn on.
Maybe Tesla got ahead of itself with the Base Pricing and what would be available and decided they can't offer all that at that price. Also found a graphic showing how "thin" the profit margins will be on the Base Model 3 and how the profit margin increases with the higher Optioning.

Seems like there's wayyyy too much assumptions and speculations on what model 3 will be.... Again, this article sounds like a clicker bait to me. But always entertaining for discussion purposes...

A quality downgrade right now would be stupid, Tesla has a great reputation with the public, hence 350,000 of the things being sold before a single production model has been made, Tesla is still in the growing up stages of it's young life, do it right, build a good car for the masses and they will be set.
