    Here's a video
    by the Model 3 owner's club that indicates that rear-wheel drive Model 3s will be the initial cars built, to be followed months later by the dual-motor Model 3s. The implication is that those of us in Hawaii who order a rear-wheel drive Model 3 (particularly if you are already a Tesla owner and managed to get in line in front of Nanimac on first day of orders) could get pretty early deliveries of our Model 3.

    At this time, I'm pondering taking the Model S back to the mainland to become my Iceman and Papafox summer and winter adventure car and using a Model 3 for my Hawaii driving.

    Papafox, I think you should wait and get a dual-motor one :p

    You see... this is how I cannot win.
    If I go for rear-wheel drive, Nanimac challenges me to a race in her Model 3, P70DL
    If I go for dual-motor, she drives by, waving and smiling, in HER Model 3 while I'm still waiting for delivery

    These decisions are tough, particularly when I have a Portuguese Water Dog depending upon me to defend the family honor.
