WHAT????... That sentence is a great tongue twister... Not sure exactly what you are saying!Agreed.. In passing on the highway to anyone not really well versed in Tesla the S X Y and 3 all look very similar.. I’d be more concerned as an S owner with my car being indistinguishable from a 3 and Y than I am as an X owner
But on the flip side, Tesla just announced they have the highest margin of any car manufacturer. I wish they would use some of that margin to just fulfill orders fairly to customers, or at the very least spend it on some delivery forecasting and customer service that doesn't completely suck. I'm going on 1+ month just asking to have a replacement Wall Connector shipped to me because the one I was sent originally is completely defective.And, scratches head, where have I seen up to 15% or more price increases recently? Oh right, everywhere. Econ 101 supply and demand. Insert comment about inflation, delete political comments… you get the drift.
Opinion: To pay for our early orders that we’re essentially getting on discount, Tesla has to earn it elsewhere. Money is fungible but they might have bracketed spending allotments for each category of the company. I think we’ll get there, and the great thing is the product is continually being improved.
good point. we only have 20k miles with almost no degradation. adding 45-50 more miles with a plaid will be really nice.I have a 2017 LR X with a range of 295 (that's the rated number, now at 63K miles 100% charge is about 275 miles). I agree with you about the bathroom breaks, but have written in this forum previously that I think 400 miles is about right. My reasoning is that bathroom breaks are a 10-15 minute event; whereas charging is a 40 to 75 minute event... Also, location of both may not be the same.
Bottom line, I appreciate that more and more range has diminishing value - however, taking into account battery degradation with age, flexibility in deciding when and where to charge, as well as real life range (I get 225 - 240 miles of practical miles per charge...), I think a higher rated car would be of benefit. When they announced the refresh X range numbers several months back, I was a little disappointed and was hoping for higher.
wait...is that for a new Model S or X? Also whereabouts in AZ are you?Plaid - MSM - black interior - 6 seater - 20 inch - No FSD - AZ

Logged in today and EDD back to August 2022
And another Monday and my EDD of Feb 3-24 is now back to August.My Plaid order placed in November just went from EDD August to Feb 3 - 24.
I never intended the Plaid to come before my June 2021 order of the Long Range X (EDD like everyone else with a placeholder of "March") , now I'm torn on what to do.
While the Plaid has my now desired color config, the extra $30k for 20 miles less range is not desirable. I placed the Plaid order thinking it may be a nice resale vehicle later on... now it may be my first chance to get back into a Model X.
