Buy Model 3 Standard Range Plus now or wait for LFP and tax credit?

Given that you have no idea or control over future pricing - tax credits, price increases, excess demands.
And you have no idea or control over battery - car may or may net battery which may or may not be in capacity or performance level as expected.

No matter when you get it, there will be more improvements coming every 3-9 months, that will make it obsolete.

So stop playing the "what if" game, and just get the car when you need / want the car.

In our family we have 1 BMW 6xx, 1 Honda Accord, 2 Bolts, and 1 Model 3. Guess who has gloating rights. There's one outstanding thing about the Bolts. They cheap. Oh, and they 'lectric and don't get stolen.
