    I am a stockholder and I own a Model S and a Model 3. I am a believer mainly based on how amazing the cars are. I was wondering what the correlation between Owner’s/Reservation holders & Stockholders might be.

    I am a stockholder with a Model 3 reservation. I already own an EV and will not be getting a Model 3 until 2019 at the earliest (UK resident). I have always been fond of Tesla vehicles and watched in awe when the Model 3 was first unveiled. I put in my reservation shortly afterwards and became very interested in the company itself since then. The more I read, the more I knew I wanted to be a part of this and invest my money in stock. I've been following the company and stock very closely since then.

    My only regret is that I didn't find out more about the company earlier and invest several years ago, but in the end I don't think that will matter to me. I'm in for the long haul.

    I got a roadster in 2012; at the same time I got into TSLA stocks. Figured, if the company goes broke (which was not out of the question back then), I might as well put all eggs in the same basket. I was young at the time and liked the car and the company a lot.

    The stock has appreciated a lot since then, and I have appreciated the cars. It's a wonderful journey that is far from over.

    These kind of results,although early in the process and obviously skewed by the audience seem to be what I would have expected, based on my own personal experience.
    But I’m guessing that if I put up the same poll for short-sellers that the data would be reversed.

    Just a shareholder.

    But I do know what I will be driving when my stupid BMW runs out of warranty, and it will cost me exactly nothing since I fully expect my TSLA gains to pay entirely for it.

    The poll is missing "neither".

    That would be extraneous data in this instance. Not relevant. This is more about the mindset of investors with skin in the game.

    I´m a stockholder but am not driving a Tesla atm.

    Had a Model S loaner some years back and had a pretty bad time with it. I also terminated my Model 3 reservation when it became apparent that it was another case of Elon-Time.
    I will give the brand another chance when I can finally test drive the Model 3 here in germany.

    I'm a stockholder with a model 3 reservation, but I'm not sure if i'll ever use it. Might go for a used model S instead.

    Been wanting to for so long. But it is hard owning a car when you travel as much as I do. I wish there was a Tesla rental program worldwide you could join and get a Tesla in every city you visit.

    Stockholder starting on July 8, 2011, have made $1.006 million in profits on my shares.

    Own 4 Teslas (Roadster, S, X & 3) plus a 4 power wall setup and have a 2020 Roadster reserved. Altogether those have cost me about $850k.

    So my TSLA addiction has covered my Tesla addiction and am still ahead of the game.:)

    I bought an S in 2015 after following the company for about 6 months. We get a lot of snow here, so once the all wheel drive went into production, I pulled the trigger. Bought stock about 2 months before I bought the car. Great experience with the S. Placed a reservation for a 3 back in January. I don't need the larger vehicle and would like a bit more range, even more fun driving experience, and the latest EAP. I will probably go for the P3. My wife is moving over to Tesla in 2 weeks when we pick up an X. She has been driving an Acura MDX for years. It has 270,000 miles on it. She borrows my S once in a while and loves driving it, so she is really excited to move to the X.

    After getting a Roadster I purchased some shares. Then after the Model 3 I bought more shares. The cars are awesome and people will soon find out.

    We purchased the stock because of convictions, and we purchased the car because our convictions were confirmed!
