Obviously, Elon's on a tear trying to convince everyone to go buy a Model S, rather than wait for the Model 3. One minor unintended consequence is that he may be convincing those of us that have a lower spec Model S that were planning to "upgrade" to a performance version of the Model 3, that we should just eschew the 3 in favor of our current rides. I intend to reserve judgment until I can see a M3 in person, but what was a sure thing is now 50/50. I am one of the people who really liked the nose of the alpha car and the aggressive lines. I don't like the softer nose at all from pictures, but pics can lie. Now that performance and all-wheel-drive are being pushed out, I may just hang on to the 70D. It's a stellar car in every way, so it's not like it's a consolation prize I really did think that the M3 was going to come with an amazingly cool augmented reality display and I still think that was the plan when Elon made his spaceship comments. I don't really care about that and the single display is ok with me, but I definitely want PXXD. All in all, I'm sure the M3 will be great, but I'm just not sure it will be better than my 70D. Still can't wait to see one though!
