@Lowhican, I must admit your post has me a little confused... you say you are a big fan of Elon, yet most of your concerns seem to indicate a somewhat insufficient understanding of his vision and how to best accomplish it... You are correct in saying that Model S & X were launched as exclusive cars (although in the case of the S, did it really have all the bells & whistles right from the start?), yet with a sticker price that goes with that positioning... T≡SLA has been formidably successful up to now with this approach, yet this was just step one... As I trust you know, Elon's goal (or I should say, one of his goals, besides boring tunnels building Hyperloops and reusable rockets to colonize Mars...) is to rEVolutionize the future of transportation... Model ≡ changes the game: it must - and will - promote T≡SLA from a niche designer/producer of sleek high end vehicles to (over the next 5+ years) a mass-market carmaker focusing only on BEVs! How they manage this ramp up is critical to vision execution and sustainability of the company. This has never been done by anyone before; if they need to minimise complexity at least initially, to make this happen, then so be it. Because you see, IMHO, that is precisely customer-centric... The >400k folks who put down $1,000 to get in line are not all created equal. They don't alll want a supercar that does 0-60 in less than 3 sec, with a range of 400 miles, all that for $35k and on top of that now! Most of us knew we would have to wait... and that it would.NOT.be.easy every day... We need to stay real, and remember, this car will know no equal. It will be the first sleek, exciting electric car that hundreds of thousands can afford, not tens of thousands! I do agree with one portion of your posting, the one in orange above... because the reasoning behind is at least unrealistic in the short term. But they does not mean that Elon is fundamentally wrong overall. And finally, I'll say that we may still have positive surprises between now and July... Keep the faith!!
