Did Tesla just kill the Model S 75D?

That’s like asking if the BMW M3 takes sales from the 5-series. It doesn’t attract the same buyers.

If you want a mid-sized track car, you wouldn’t be looking at the Model S.

If you want a full-sized, soft suspension tuned and more refined car, then you aren’t looking at the smaller Model 3 (especially the Performance).
 
You often get performance overlap between the sportiest top-of-the-line smaller model and base model larger size car from any manufacturer. The S is obviously a much older design too and due a major refresh pretty soon. Again this happens a lot in the automotive industry with staggered model replacements. When the next gen S eventually comes out, the Model 3 will then become the older model etc.

Love my S. 3 needs a heads up display on the dual motor, with white interior, before I buy the 3... I’m in the ready to configure mode... just waiting... Tesla, are you listening?

HAha. Very concerning. So you already have "heads-up" on your dual motor S, and it has a white interior? Do you have any car with heads-up with a white interior? BMW? Volvo? Lexus? Mazda? As for buying the 3, I'm in the already configured already got mine mode. Why are you waiting? More than likely because there are 400,000 orders in front of you. I don't think Tesla cares much about people with set ideas about what they want. If you don't buy what they've got, somebody else will. That's profit. For the next two years. I got mine because it's electric. All those "heads-up" cars aren't.

Why are people so ga-ga about heads up? They still want to fiddle with the radio, use the cell phone, and crash with amazing regularity into cars ahead of them rather than look out the front window. Heads-up? How about "brain-on" first. Glancing six inches below the window isn't what's causing the accidents. That's why it's illegal in CA to drive holding a cell phone.

The absence of the speedometer/tachometer behind the steering wheel is too much of a leap for me. I know people don't mind looking at the left side of the center monitor for all their information, but I think a head's up display would be an ideal option for those of us who 'have issues'... to each is own...
