    Currently a Model S owner and also on reservation for Model 3 since reveal night... Base on what I'm seeing so far about the Model 3, I'm thinking about pushing back my configuration or delivery when my turn comes up. Does my name go back at the end of the line, or just until when I'm ready. Reason is because I would like to wait it out a bit for them to work out all the kinks, and see if there's any improvement from the first initial release.

    Until you're ready. But behind anyone who's willing to buy a more expensive car than you. :p

    I think they original said 1 deferral (i.e. you get to specify a date in the future when you'll configure). But in reality I don't think that they'll care for a while and will be happy to hold onto your reservation money.

    We have no details, but likely you'll hold your spot at the start of the line until you're ready.

    I was wondering the same thing, but for different reasons. I imagine if you wait long enough, it won't matter because there will no longer be a waiting list.

    Allegedly there are people who still have not used their Model X reservations. I think you can hold and not use until you are ready. If they run out of reservations totally, yeah, then that might be the end of the 'deferral' time period (2019?).

    Wait til you're ready. Don't order what you don't want to own. They will never refuse your order and your priority won't suffer. They will tell you your wait time and waiting for what you actually want is best, no?
