So i just put my order on ho
It really depends on how soon you want to drive the best car on the planet
What exactly are you waiting for? Anything specific?
So you could get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul?
Sorry, another thread topic running into this one!
Why wait? The sooner you buy, the sooner you drive!
Seriously though, Tesla doesn't do yearly upgrades like most manufacturers. Tesla upgrades as they have stuff ready to go. See the most recent 100 battery upgrade. Was it part of the 2017 roll out? Nope. Neither will the AutoPilot 2.0 hardware (anticipated to be the next big upgrade). Just do it!
whats in the 2017 Model to make you wait?
Waiting for a 2017 X doesn't make sense - Tesla doesn't really do model years as such.
If you wanted to wait for a 100 kWh battery or for second generation Autopilot, that could make sense, maybe.
Honestly, unless you have an amazing car already or specifically need those features for some reason, I'd suggest buying now; the car is great and the experience will continue to get better - and we have no idea how long you'd be waiting...
Thanks for the fast replies. Your replies came in like lighting lol. Some how i posted twice and this one has not thread. my original is in the forum above this one under same title with my complete questions. I will try to delete this one
My X just went into production. Why wait for anything? The software update to AP that just came out makes more than meet my requirements, who needs new hardware?
Everyone saying why wait. Go to sale section and see how many people post for sale and only mention year not month.
The general public aka the used car market (even if it's physiological) factors in years.
PLUS potential for new hardware. That being said I take delivery Tuesday
Keep in mind, Tesla doesn't do years. So there is no such thing as a 2016 nor 2017. They change stuff when they want to.
I'm waiting for the following reasons:
1. Battery pack with new cells from Gigafactory. They will have new one for sure after production starts in Nevada. Better cells - more performance expected even with the same 100kwh capacity.
2. New autopilot hardware.
3. Faster Nvidia chip - which they will use for autopilot processing as well.
4. Bugs fixing - it's first production year. I believe still lots of small bugs/prpblems in the car which they will fix soon.
I would wait to see if there are 4th quarter special deals if there is no rush.
Those end-of-3Q deals may not be repeated.
Elon Musk says ‘likely best quarter in Tesla history’, puts a stop to discounts on new cars
That, and I am pretty sure all the "deals" were on inventory (even though they were brand new) cars, so the options are what they are, and not customizable.
They well may. End of year, they badly want to meet wall Street expectations of annual delivery and there will be deals... Friend of mine got almost 9grand discount last year.
You should wait because AP 2.0 could potentially be a game changer with L3 autonomous driving before L4 comes out in 3-5 years.
They will never run AP and the center screen on the same CPU.
I suggest you proceed to order the car you want. You can always wait for the next upcoming feature with Tesla. Model years are also not the same as other conventional car manufacturers. If you see yourself really wanting the next upgrades say autopilot 2.0, lease for 2 or 3 years.
Enjoy the car earlier when you order now.
If you can wait, then wait as long as possible. There will always be new features and bug fixes down the road.
There's really no need to catch on the bandwagon unless you really need a new car now.
Correct. When it comes to making changes to their product, Tesla pays no attention to the calendar year. Changes are not made on a fixed schedule. Elon has stated the cars change every week, primarily little things that customers don't notice.
The only meaning a "2017 Tesla" has is that the car was built sometime during 2017. That is all.
