    Model 3 unveiling/deposits started around 15 months before production started. I'm guessing we may see the Model Y unveiled in August 2018.

    Ok so we have Elon ON RECORD GUARANTEEING that they will be producing 5,000 Model Y's per week starting November 1st, 2019.

    There, I said it ! Now everyone going forward can quote me here as proof that Tesla will have missed all their Model Y production goals if they don't achieve that. :)

    So begins the litany of posts from all the glass half full types WRT Model Y: 1) missed deadlines, 2) pushed back initial deliveries, 3) lowered part orders from suppliers, 4) rumors of Lithium shortages, 5) general FUD, 6) 200 more thread pages, lather, rinse, repeat...

    Looking forward to seeing the reveal.

    Id prefer a CUV than a sedan, my guess will look like a mini X much like the M3 vs S. Not that would be a bad thing but would like some more interesting design.

    Take my money, Elon.
    Here's hoping for a full price deposit payment option when they start taking reservations (as with Roadster 2), as a way to jump the line.
    Model 3 is a stop-gap for my wife, who loves being higher and therefore in an SUV.
    It's going to be a longggg ~two years.

    Wow.....I love it!
    Looking forward to the public reveal.....will definitely put down my deposit.

    Fortunate enough to order my '18 Blue Model 3 two weeks ago (March 27)
    after being having 1st day reservation and Canadian customer.

    I ordered my Blue 3 with LR, PUP & EAP.
    My wife will get the Red Model Y

    Recently picked up a used leaf so my EV urgency has dropped... If it's only one extra year vs an AWD 3, it'd be worth the wait since a CUV would allow us to get rid of ICE altogether, while with the 3, we'd still need to keep and use our Forrester.

    That is why Tesla will not need a capital raise this year - they will just collect 500,000 reservations × $40,000 = $20 billion!

    Exclusive: Tesla targets November 2019 for start of Model Y production

    I believe Elon Musk will follow the Model 3 formula:
    If it ain't broke, then don't fix it!

    500,000 possible reservations @ $1000 = $500,000,000 (Half Billion Dollars)

    if Elon increases the deposit from $1,000 to $2,000, then Tesla Motors receives ONE BILLION DOLLARS.

    Unfortunately I don’t think they’ll get to 500k deposits this time around. In my opinion the majority of model 3 deposits were made on the promise of a 35k price (I know it’ll happen but when?)

    Make the Model Y as normal as possible. Same doors, door handles, etc. as the Model 3...just a rear hatch and different ceiling glass so there is a D pillar.

    I think they will get at least 500K deposits. Many existing Tesla owners will order one.

    Now that my S is nearing the end of warranty, and like a vampire in the night, that scares the hell out of me... and with the realization that I really like my wife's 3... (WOW what awesomeness for the money)...

    ... I want a Y.

    so.. it better be:

    1. No stupid ass doors
    2. AWD
    3. approx 5k more than a 3
    4. black headliner
    5. i want a sunroof.

    now... tesla... SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
    I'm out of bumper 2 bumper March 2019. And I have another car... so... sell the Tesla and drive it until I can get into a Y?

    When is the Y reveal? If it's ugly.... I'mma buy a AWD3... so... hurry up w/the reveal so I know which car to buy already.

    Tesla will definitely get to 500,000 reservations world-wide if the deposits will remain at $1000 down

    The whole automotive landscape is a-changin with the ever increasing SUV/CUV market penetration
    Ford Motors recently announced that they will be phasing out ALL car manufacturing

    Focus dead: March 2018
    Taurus dead: May 2019
    Fiesta dead: March 2020

    Ford to phase out passenger cars as it focuses on trucks and electric vehicles

    I’m surprised they’re killing the Focus first. Seems like it’s a good seller for them
