    Wouldn't that cause too much of an overlap between the two model lines?

    Looking at the historical Tesla trend to increase prices, I'd say no.

    Not really

    Let's say we start at 60k and top will be 120k
    Still way more expensive than Model 3

    The reason I asked!
    Tesla bluntly said P100D is paying for M3 but that's not going to be sustainable by most! Besides I don't see how all other Automakers will sit and twiddle their fingers while Gesla steals all these sales from them !!!!

    Remains to be seen

    Not just with Tesla, but isn't that usually the case where the price of a given make/model car goes up from year to year? Other than, say, with the Model T (and maybe some other exceptions). But, yes, I don't see the base price of the Model S going down with the introduction of the Model 3.

    As battery costs drop there will be room - or increased profits.

    Upcoming being the key word. The prices potential competitors will set is still unknown and they will also want to charge as much the market will bear. I don't see a price war happening any time soon (esp. once you factor in inflation).

    Ideally there's a bit of overlap between top of the line 3 and low end S. I'd wager MS60 is going bye bye.

    Given the size and price difference, I don't think the M3 is going to cannibalize sales of MS, and thus I doubt the MS will see significant price drops when the M3 comes out. The German luxury manufacturers have no problems collecting more money for the larger cars (BMW 7 vs 3, Merc S vs C), so I don't see why Tesla can't do the same.

    I'm am confident the price will not go down on the model S. In saying that you will not get the same car as today. It will have more standard features for sure. On top of that I would not be surprised if they offer discounts at there stores to put customers over the line. I do belive the model 3 will be a hit and the model S will caught in its shadows.
