No trailer hitch would be a deal breaker for me.

Still waiting on all wheel drive but the lack of a trailer hitch would be a deal breaker for me. I plan on getting rid of my ICE car and the Tesla will be my only car. I live in a place where I trap raccoons that I need to haul off to the woods and I'm not putting a raccoon inside a $65,000 car. (the real price) And I would use an external basket when hauling things like bags of potting soil, concrete, large plants, and other things I might buy that I wouldn't put inside an expensive car.

So - no trailer hitch - no deal.

All signs and statements about the Model 3 state it would not have a towing capability.

I'm pretty sure Elon said it would have one. And the manual says that it is not currently supported:

That sure sounds like they plan on adding support. (Probably with the AWD/SAS package.)
