    Okay, so there is one really poor person buying a model S.

    Nonsense! ! ! ! You live only once! ! ! If I had your cash reserves, it'd buy the S! ! ! I'm jealous.....wish I had the money for the 40....but not until Gen III......

    Is anyone actually buying the 40 kWh Model S at this point?

    I've crunched the numbers...... Assuming I get no options.....which is tough for a techie.....the car comes close to $70000 before rebates and with taxes....this includes the service.... That's too expensive! ! ! For me at least...... Will probably look at the Volt or Prius..... Shame...
