    Just wondering what the Model 3 will do to the Model S used market.

    We are keeping our MS and replacing our ICE with the M3.

    being that I own a VERY early Model S (December 2012 production), the Model 3 is my upgrade.
    2018/2019 should be about right. Tesla Time.

    Concur. I would never trade an S for a 3. I do like the idea of having one of each though.

    never say never. you probably would, if you had a Model S with basically none of the current feature set.
    (no parking sensors, no rear heated seats (no winter package), no autonomous sensors, all these and more where added).

    Yes, we will keep the Model S when we buy a T3 - but we will be selling the Roadster.

    We will probably sell the Model S when we can get a Model Y.

    Will keep it. However, as mitch672 has indicated, there are a number of features not present 3+ years ago. Living in the northeast, AWD is a notable option not available in the earlier model.

    Plan to keep the Roadster and S along with the Model 3. Roadster will probably go out on the weekends and on perfect weather days.

    I love my S and don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. The 3 will replace my wife's Avalon Hybrid.

    Might get the 3 to replace or RAV4 EV and replace our S with an X. Waiting to see if the X links get worked out a little better first. Then we'll trade or big SUV for a Pacifica PHEV.

    Keeping the new 70D, but my 2012 Leaf has got to go. I already have a friend lined up that loves the Leaf, and she's just waiting for her Smart lease to expire.

    Model S is my work horse to haul things inside around.

    Model ≡ cannot replace my Model S because it's no Model S.

    Definitely going to be keeping our 85D! The Model 3 is to replace my wife's ICE car! A nice upgrade for her.
