I've been considering a Model S since 2013, I literally go back and forth on it almost every single day. I have 2 model 3 reservations and currently have a 2 year lease on an i3 ending next summer. Looking to have an entertaining discussion on buying/leasing a model S60 now. The biggest hurdle is I'm cheap, currently we have no car payments other than the $200 lease payment on the i3 that pays for itself due to not having to drive our other two ICE cars those miles (gas, maintenance). I chatted with Tesla this morning, thought maybe an inventory car would push the number down to where frugal me would make the jump, $600 a month seams to be the psychological barrier for me. I could do a stripped down 2 year lease but there are a few options I want, AP of course, panoramic roof, subzero package (can't live without heated seats). I would prefer either white, silver, or silver metallic paint. I'm not against the cloth interior but would prefer black leather. this configuration pushes lease up to $700+ a month. Unfortunately the inventory cars are almost all higher spec so even though I could get a discount on those it would most likely push payment above ordering new. This isn't a "can I afford it" issue, we are debt free other than our primary home and make multiple 6 figures a year. Frugal me struggles with the opportunity cost of buying a Model S vs keeping what we have until Model 3. Also, would I prefer to have a fully optioned Model 3 or a basic version of the Model S? First world problems.
