Regarding the Model 3...Have you considered what a brilliant move Tesla made? Pre-orders of the new Model 3 are "In Store" for the first 24h, then they will go live online. This will cause people in places like California (And hopefully many more) to stand in line to pre-order the car. The result will be an Apple launch effect and one that never happened before in Automobile history (As far as I remember). I n don't think that even Ferrari could pull that off. I doubt there're real reasons other than this. Tesla will get free publicity and press coverage...I can already see photos and videos of people in line in front of the store. Absolute genius.
