    With the record number for the model 3 reservation holder, there are a large influx of new Tesla future owner/customers. I wish there is a poll option on here. Along with the thread of other cars you have owned, it seem to be there are still a larger base of reservation holder that have much longer life experience compare to that I expected.

    Trying to see if how many are been following Tesla for a long time and jumping on the Model 3 new market segment compare to the interest of Generation X,Y, millennials.

    I'm 36 years old now but won't be by the time I get my hand on the Model 3.

    Here is the link that we use on the official Tesla forum. Hoping cross posting on this will provide a more valid and useful trend of the bigger group of those who put down the money for reservation.

    Please use this poll link

    I'd pretty much be horrified for most 80+ year olds behind the wheel of a performance model unless they still have lightning fast reflexes.

    Isn't that what auto pilot is for?

    ahahah...I don't think 80+ owners will opt for ludicrous option. Don't worry.

    Totally agree. I look forward to full automation when it comes, then they can't take my license away when I get old. :)

    The most encouraging thing about 80+ reservers is that they are optimistic enough to think they will be alive and well when their Model 3 comes of the assembly line!!!

    the whole "how old are you when you place model 3 reservation" subject just doesn't sound right. It make the whole thing sound like Model 3 will take years to release / deliver.

    If the intent was to ask what age group do you belong to when you reserve a model 3 or something like that would've sound better heehhe

    Similar to dog years, each Tesla year (AT) is measured in the old months scale.

    The REAL question is how old WILL you be when you get your Model 3.

    I was behind a car merging onto a motorway. On the slip-road it was doing 35 even as it straightened out and the roads converged. It then slowly sped up to about 45 as it pulled into traffic doing 60+ . I was behind it and having to merge in at its pace with lorries coming up behind - and they don't like to slow down. I saw a gap to get to the middle lane and pulled past and saw somebody who must have been 80+ behind the wheel. I felt bad for giving a toot of annoyance - probably not helping their confidence! Sometimes slow people are more dangerous than fast drivers! I'm in the 35-45 range and drive a medium sized hatchback - so not exactly boy-racer!

    I'll probably be 67 or so. Someone has to convince Musk to make a Model 3 hatchback first.

    I first developed an electric car interest at age 30. That was 42 years ago...
