    Some of us own a Tesla vehicle, or have a reservation for one.
    Some of us own stock in Tesla Motors (TSLA) or have call options, etc.
    Some are in both categories, some in neither.

    How about you?

    Own Models S, own shares and trade shares and options to accumulate more shares, about to order Model X.

    Holding until $990 per share to avoid massive dip caused by brianstorms selling his shares.

    still long for shares I still own. Will purchase a Model E with the profits I've made when I cashed in shares when it broke 100.

    I'll let you know. :) Don't expect to hear anything soon. I'm waiting for Gen III and to see what happens. Until then, the rest of this is just really really fun to watch.

    Great idea Robert Boston!!

    I owned the stock options (LEAPs) and then bought the S one year ago and bought a lot more options as a result. Now I own lots of shares and am a Model X res holder as well...

    I plan to hold at least until I personally test drive another fully electric car that I feel is comparable to Tesla's latest product (which I will always own) at a comparable price. If/when that happens then I may sell sme of my shares. Probably will be many years from now when that happens due to the headstart Tesla has.

    Neither.
    Car: I'm waiting and hoping for Gen 3 on target.
    Shares: It's OK, though. If the share value is anything like correct, the future will be so bright, well ... :cool:

    I bought shares early last year and had no intention of buying a Model S (how much?? that's more than my first two houses!), was going to use the profits in 2017 to buy a Model E. But then I just couldn't wait -- once a shareholder and paying even more attention to Tesla (if that's possible), it was harder and harder to resist. Hindsight: I would do it again in a heartbeat.:love: Eventually I'll sell my shares (Price is Right - we're up to $986 now?) but I'm long.

    I bought shares shortly after I ordered the car. I thought if 10 years from now the shares are way up, I wouldn't be able to look at my old electric car without thinking how much money I would have had if I bought the shares instead of the car. So I got both.

    I bought shares hoping that one day I could buy the car. Thankfully that happened :)

    Will buy a GenIII (If my 2001 A4 makes it that long). Very happy TSLA owner.

    I plan to keep my TSLA as long as there's a Musk running the show.

    I sold about half my shares near the end of last May to pay for my Model S. I intend to hold the rest as long as I can. However, I have to cash in about 4% of them each year for tax purposes. I'm retired and my my IRA requires a minimum distribution.

    Long TSLA.

    Pre-Pre-Pre Reservation. (Hoping to buy next year, regardless of stock holdings)
