    I have worked some figures based on the following: non sig, brown 85 kw, twin charger, tech, 19 in wheels, leather, pano, shelf, air suspension, and assuming shipping charges of 2500 usd and exchange rate of 1.05, approx Au$107000. With the currency at par, Au$115000.
    The sig, on the other hand comes out at $142000 odd!
    I have used 5% import duty, 10% GST and LCT of 33% on the GST free amount over $75325.
    I would be interested in anyone else's calcs as I certainly don't trust my figures!
    I have excluded the price rise from my figures and used the figures from the design studio of my reserved cars.:redface:

    My calcs;

    option Mod S S Perf
    base $69,900 $84,900
    sunroof $1,500 $1,500
    21" wheels $3,500 $0
    leather $1,500 $0
    tech pkg $3,750 $3,750
    studio snd $950 $950
    air susp $1,500 $0
    parcel $250 $250

    no Fed credit $7,500 $7,500
    Freight $5,000 $5,000
    import $3,300 $3,300
    RHD $0 $0
    Local warranty $10,000 $10,000
    LCT $11,105 $13,910

    TOTAL $119,755 $131,060

    conv rate $0.99

    AU total $120,964 $132,383
    inc gst $133,061 $145,622
    inc stamp $135,722 $148,534

    ** Note: I do not work for Tesla and am guessing the figures above. Stamp duty on a new vehicle may be different to the 2% that I've used. The conversion rate at 0.99 was chosen to hedge for drops in currency between now and delivery. LCT was calculated at $75,000 threshold. There was an uplift in Roadsters for RHD. Local Warranty was considerably more expensive with Roadsters. The calculations were done pre-price rise.

    I'm a non-sig reservation holder.

    2 questions. 1> What about paint, or are you just getting the standard black or white?
    2> Local Warranty $10,000? Please explain what this is.

    No problem - I'm just looking at the white, although the new red is tempting. The Roadster outside of the US carried a premium to cater for the cost of delivering warranty in Australia. That's one of the reasons that it was so expensive - especially with the low production numbers that would be here. The model S may have an uplift for warranty costs, and I'm hoping that its less than $10k - especially with the higher production numbers and lower cost in the first place.

    Bear in mind that Tesla needs to keep a supply of parts for crash damage repairs as well as failed parts for 10 years.

    I am a non-sig reservation holder as well,

    looking at a Model S Perf (non-sig) in Green, with Grey leather and matte wood and pretty much every option except for the jumpseats.

    Hoping for low prices, but yeah, not holding my breath.

    Hi all - first post here. You could call me a tyre kicker - I want one of these so much, but at the expected Australian prices, I can't see myself affording a Model S without doing something stupid (for me) like borrowing back off my home!

    The reason I'm posting is to suggest something which I've done already, and it's most probably fallen on deaf ears;

    Contact our Minister for Environment, The Hon. Greg Hunt MP: Greg Hunt MP, Minister for the Environment - Home page

    I contacted him via twitter (no response) and offered my suggestion that 100% EV's should be encouraged for their environmental benefits, and as such there should be rules in place to lower tax penalties for customers purchasing them, particularly the excessive luxury vehicle tax.

    Below are contact details for him directly. I'd imagine it's of no concern to him, but the more people raise it as an issue, the more likely there is to be change.

    Here is a link to the tweet I sent him: Twitter / alexeiw123: [email protected] as minister for ...
