    Ok Sunil, here it is.

    Please only vote if you have purchased a MS, or are going to purchase one within the next 12 months.

    Figures are USD.

    The only thing that could make this better is if it was a public poll :)

    If I told you, you would say I could not afford my Tesla. And you would be correct, but I plan on enjoying life while I can, and I am counting on you to take care of me in the nursing home.

    This is still flawed because it depends on age, I believe. What if one is 60 years old but only has 1mil in net worth, vs a 30 years old person with 250k? That 250k would be several millions at age 65 for the 30 years old, but the 1mil is looking weak for the 60 years old so close to retirement age, and he perhaps shouldn't be buying a model s.

    Most people over-estimate their own net worth anyway. As an example, we all like to think that our property is worth more than it really is and take a look back at 2008 where values changed almost overnight; or look at stock market investments where the same thing happened, your net worth yesterday is not necessarily your net worth tomorrow.

    Or that we "own" something that we borrowed money to get.

    But you'll have to buy multiple Teslas in your life, and I'll only buy one.

    I'm still pondering someone having a net worth below $100k and buying a Tesla. They must have good income, obviously, but not have had income for very long? Or maybe planning to live in the car?

    I'm in the nearly poor category. It's all about HOW you spend, not necessarily HOW MUCH you have ;) I get asked all the time how I afford everything I have. It's because I know HOW to spend and HOW NOT to spend. That leaves me with a Awesome car, my old truck, a fairly large house with large yard, ride on backyard railroad, lots of fun trips and vacations for me and my boys, money to go out and enjoy ourselves, living comfortable, make every payment (I got my first credit card at age 15 (co signed by my parents of course), and have never missed a payment on anything in my entire life), and yet, I still have a growing retirement fund. And, I'm now a full time single stay at home father :) It almost feels like I'm retired now, accept the midgets know how to torture papa... TALLEY-HO! (BTW, I'm 29, make about 40k/year at present, was much more, but now that I don't have a gamboling addict ***** wife, making less, I actually have "more" staying home haha!) Oh, I do also have a second house that I rent out, but it's breaking even. Rent coming in covers expenses of the house, at least until I can sell it (Moved literally weeks before the big housing bubble burst, and got stuck with the house...., but as long as it breaks even and makes it's own mortgage payments I'm happy).

    Its all relative. For example, in theory, your 30s isnt exactly a time of financial freedom; you accumulate debt; have kids (talk about money pits) and life in general comes at you in full force. The person on the other side of that still standing with a fistful of cash and (again in theory) no debt could be MUCH better off than the your example of the 30yr old.

    Please try to pay off the Tesla first. I'd think it's a lousy car to try to elude the repo man in -- he just has to stake out the nearest Supercharger. :crying:
