Hello All... been lurking on the forums and Tesla website for few months now as I inch closer and closer to convincing myself to buy a Model S. So I thought that I could get real advice from real people and whether you think it would be financially irresponsible for me to buy a Tesla. I'll give you my numbers and thought process so please help by giving input of whether or not I actually should purchase it. I'm 21(if age matters) and I make about 40,000 a year as a junior software developer. I plan on buying a new car early this coming year so probably February or March. By then, I predict my salary to also become 5-10k higher but I won't factor that in since it's speculation. So basically, my reasoning is as follows. - I make about 3,000 a month. - I live with family so little to no cost on rent but come from immigrant family who recently tied up their money on new house mortgage so this car will be all on me. - I typically spend about 500 dollars a month on food since I eat at home quite often. Factoring in other expenses here and there and I easily stay under a total of 1,000 dollars a month on personal expenses. - I am still not sure of CPO or New but I'm leaning towards CPO since it'd be more affordable and because of the fact that the 7,500 rebate will most likely not apply to me at all. - I currently commute to work which totals to nearly 80 miles a day and typically 3 hours of drive time. With a tesla though, I'd be able to get a clean air vehicle sticker which would save about 30 minutes each way. - Insurance would be about 200/300 a month? So based on this, what do you guys think? Things I should worry about? Hidden Costs? Need more info? I have fairly good credit since I have cosigned on a new car before. Thanks in advance to all repliers even if you do believe I am not being logical. And please be honest even if it may not be what I wanna hear! Thanks!!!
