Hear ye hear ye. All ye with short attention spans cast your projections here!
We just leased a new XC60 for my wife as a placeholder until either the Model Y is available, or the Volvo BEV version of the XC60 is out. We might be a bit optimistic with a 3-year lease, but one can hope.The Volvo XC60 is basically the same size as M3/MY, and same customer demographics.
-No FW doors, I think they have learned their lesson.
The Model Y will face more competition, so best price, best range, lowest weight... and best performances, would be more and more crucial.Well, you certainly could be right about this but I can also imagine Elon saying "Our Falcon Wing doors on the Model X are one of it's best features, every new customer loves them and now that we've worked out all of the issues on the doors they're extremely reliable!"
Oh yes, I remember this video... when they ran the I-Pace against the Model X PPP100D.... Triple performance best available Tesla.... lol.The Model Y will face more competition, so best price, best range, lowest weight... and best performances, would be more and more crucial.

If it insists on the falcon door shenanagins or derivative thereof I can't think of a better way to jeopardise the whole "Part Deux" plan. Keep it simple is the key, the market wants an electric SUV NOW they don't give a toss about falcon doors.
