I love my model s, but wouldn't mind a smaller, sportier vehicle. May put down a deposit and wait and see

Awesome! The timing should be just about right for replacing our 2nd car (an ICE) and becoming an all EV family. I hope there is a signature version, as this is one I would really like and will be affordable all tripped out.

Nice to see Tesla shifting gears and putting all hands on deck for Model 3!

Edit: Although I do see that he didn't specify a year for the unveiling... so... yeah...

In for this. I hope I can put down a reservation near the front since my Volt lease will be up in 2017. I can go one car for a few months, but don't want to be stuck without a car for a year.

He already previously said March 2016.

I remembered because at the moment he said that I said, "Ok, so I need a check ready in March." Turns out I was right. :)

Elon Musk @ May 5 said:
We are having to show off the Model 3 in approximately March of next year. Again, don't super hold me to that month.
That's our aspiration. Then be in production with the Model 3 in the -- I'd like to say mid-, but probably closer to late 2017 timeframe. Late 2017 is probably more realistic.

So, calm down -- he's pinned the year already.

So, calm down

I'm calm :)

I was just confused / surprised / dumbfounded.

I was trying to wrap my head around taking reservations 1.5 years ahead of the expected first car off the assembly line and wanted to make sure I wasn't making a mental error.

Nothing to see here, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. :)
