    Does anyone know the percentage of non Tesla owners that are members of this forum?

    The site stat shows: Members 30,711 Active Members 5,610

    My WAG would be of the active members maybe 50% are owners. Of the non-active members probably less than 10% are owners. A lot of people are waiting for Model 3 or Model X.

    Run a poll. That's a sure way to get to The Truth™. I'll help with the results of your poll. I'm not an owner. :wink:

    For a poll perhaps categories for non-owners? I'm in the "contemplating Model-S" category, but I imagine there are others who would be buyers at Model-3 price-point, although if you have a category for "Shafted by, and leaving, VW" I'd tick that instead.

    I'm not an owner either, but the Model 3 will probably arrive at the time I need to purchase a new vehicle. It will be my first consideration.

    Of course if I win the lottery, I'll have to find a garage to house the Tesla S and X I would buy.

    I would include this catagory in the poll also : "Was a member of the forum when I did not own a tesla, and own a tesla now".
    I think a high percentage of people started as non Tesla owners and own a Tesla now.

    Non owner here. I think most owners have their Tesla car details in their signature.:smile:

    Yeah...

    1st mistake: start reading TMC

    2nd mistake: create a TMC userid so threads can actually be followed, creating more reading.

    3rd mistake: test drive. This makes resistance to assimilation very close to futile.

    Best decision ever made (well... except for a few other best decisions): caution to the winds and purchase completed

    I'd gues the percentage of members that are owners is pretty small. Maybe 10-20%. However the owners post significantly more and stay active much longer than non-members, so I'd bet that the majority of posts are by owners.

    If you do, it would be interesting to know why people aren't owners yet. As my sig says, I'm saving for a Model S, but many who don't own are waiting for another model to become available. I think some people are just investors and are here for the financial part of the forum. Others are just interested in the technology, but even a Model 3 would be a stretch for them financially.

    I fall into the long-time lurker, long-time MX reservation holder, finally gave up and bought a MS category. Wish I hadn't waited so long. The CPO program pulled me over the edge.

    See sig. Price (and the large size doesn't help).
