    I'm 52 and am curious as to the age of other reservation holders here on the forum. Should be interesting to see where the majority of model 3 reservation holders are age-wise.

    Thanks wallet.det...I actually did do a search for average age but it returned nothing. Kind of guessed that one might be out there somewhere.

    The problem is that the first one isn't a poll and the second is closed (and had problems with overlapping age 35 and not being granular enough for those over 50). Also, unlike the other poll, this one does not display the forum members' names with the results. Some people may not wish to share their ages, so the anonymity of this poll may encourage more members to participate.

    I don't know how old I am but assuming the ≡ will appeal to everyone 18 to 80.

    Which is why I was surprised to see a writer describing the new battery cells for the ≡ use the word "gangsta" in a recent article. Not exactly a term that appeals to the range of Tesla demographics. But then again the writer also said "... Tesla is HUNGRY and has just kicked down the doors to the cafeteria", so he might be living in his own world.

    I am currently 116 and hoping my Model 3 will bring my age...at least my mental age back to 23. ;)

    Looks like the 31 to 40 age group is leading the way which is about how I thought it would look. Overall a nice distribution which just goes to show the wide ranging appeal that the Model 3 has!

    I'm 65 and quite aware of Teslas previous delays, so if they do run into some prolonged production problems with the model 3 my daughter will be getting the car and she's 35..

    Wait a minute. You just gave me an idea. Actually I do know how old I am. 102. Still have my drivers license, but my doctor only gives me two years to live.

    Soooooo, would you folks mind signing a petition to bump me to first in line?

    You wouldn't mind, would you?

    Help a brother out?

    Chronologically 58 and super excited to drive on electrons! Two of my kids have reservations for this car too! All three of us made reservations before seeing the car.

    23, this will be my first car purchase. Instead of getting one right after I graduated, I wanted to wait and save up for a car I actually wanted.
