    Ditto. An X (seven seater where two rows fold down) is pretty versatile. And a 3 for the other commuter car. :D

    Audi R8 or some kind of fun 2 seater sports car, maybe another S2000?

    Slightly oversized, high clearance Aptera with the rear hatch adjustable in height (sliding sides). That's my dream car. By changing the hatch position it could transition between hyper-efficient, long-range/fast streamliner (hatch all the way down); crossover (hatch nearly level, rear seats up); cargo van (hatch nearly level, rear seats down); pop-up camper (hatch up); and if removable, even as a pickup (hatch off). The high clearance (such wing-shaped vehicles can get high clearance without sacrificing efficiency) would let it offroad too. I mean, how awesome would that be?

    Some day. I hope...

    Another Tesla (have two now).

    This decision was cemented by asking the following question when shopping for the second car: What car would make you want to drive it somewhere instead of the Tesla? The answer is obvious.

    Everyday driver was Roadster for 2 years, then S for almost 5 and then wife got an X. Guess the next one will be a model 3 to replace my kids car which is on its last legs. Is 4 Teslas to many? So far the Koolaid still tastes great.

    Ever since we got the first Tesla in 2009, we haven't found a reason to buy anything else.

    I had a Roadster first, then my wife got one of the first Model S, then I got a later S.

    My wife will trade in her S for a 3, and when my S lease is up I will get an X.

    I sure wish other manufacturers would catch up so we could have some more choices...

    Would love to get rid of my F-150 for a Tesla Pickup, then we would be all electric.

    Our other vehicle is an Explorer however it will go when either of the following happens: wait list for a 3LR (with D option) delivery in Canada is less than 4 months, or Tesla has a vehicle comparable in size (and shape actually) to either the Explorer or F-150

    What motivates these kind of questions? Serves no useful purpose or survey. Just random sitting in the dentist chair dream up questions or something?

    I occasionally need a truck, but not enough to spend the money to actually buy and insure one for the 2 weeks a year I need it. So I Turo a truck on those days.

    So the obvious, clear, no question answer is without ambiguity: Roadster V2.

    If the 3 rides low, I might end up selling it and getting the Y instead. Like sitting up higher, and a bad back points in that direction. Always "waiting" for the next better thing is no longer part of the plan. Hence the 3 purchase no matter what.
