After digesting all the videos and stats about the Model 3 I am more convinced that I will be in the market for a Model S to replace my current vehicle. Here are some reasons. Exterior: While I know it is an Alpha build and things can and will change the proportions just feel out of place for me. I like the sleeker, longer style of the S. The full hatch compared to the 3 trunk makes me think I can benefit more from the entry size and cargo carrying capability. Interior: Wouldn't it be cool if the 15" monitor could rotate from landscape to portrait when the driver wanted for any UI benefit? That would be awesome if it could swivel. But the center console is just not something I'm ready to move to when driving. I drive about 15-18K miles a year. I enjoy driving. I enjoy the idea of all the tech in the car but that visual display just behind the wheel is still something I want going forward. Maybe in the next car after the S I will be more comfortable. But for now, the transition is not something I want. Although that all glass roof looks pretty sweet, I prefer a solid roof. I want this vehicle to be very long term and any way I can reduce potential repairs past warranty the better. Longevity: I believe the Model 3 will actually benefit the S when it comes to future repairability when it comes to replacement parts and service done. The 3 will require a larger consumer market where owners will want service done quickly and in more places. I see indy shops taking a keen eye of investment on repairing and will be adjusting their abilities which will help increase repair speed on S's. So for me a body color roof and no SAS are things I'll be shopping for. And I'm sure I'm in the minority, but even after trying autopilot I'd rather not have it. I enjoy driving. Battery: Again for me, distance is important. The estimated range on the 3 is just a hair lower than what I'd be comfortable with when I really need those long drive days. And with the news of more superchargers coming, if (when) the 85kw or 90kw (or even the 100) battery life degrades there will be more opportunities to charge in more places. But until then the range of the 85 will give me the confidence of doing what and where I need to go. Depreciation: I think I saw there are up to 200k deposits on the 3 as I am writing this so if I signed up now and given the track history of schedule I sincerely doubt I would be in the 2017 (really 2018) delivery date. So even then I'd be two years out. I really really wish those CPO cars made it back down into the 50s or even 40s again. I hope they do, but if not I'm considering a private sale route. The Model S would be affordable and drivable before I could get a 3. To me, EV incentives are not a sale factor. I enjoy smart technology and good design, not a tax deduction. I hope and think Tesla will advance more as a company well on after any tax incentives are eliminated. Anyway, thought I'd just share my musings to share. Or if anyone has any contributions I'd love to hear them. Cheers to an innovative, exciting company to watch.
