I get it and in your boatIt had better be, it's twice the price.
The MS is nice, and I would love to have one, but I can't justify it to myself because I don't think it's twice the car. For my sensibilities, it's way too big of a leap pricewise between the M3/Y and MS/X. A little larger, some nicer materials here and there, better suspension, and a bit faster...but man do you pay a lot for those (mostly incremental) improvements.
BMW, for example...you can get into a 3 series starting for around $46k and a 5 series (the next size/level up) for around $62k. It doesn't jump from ~$44k to ~$88k like Tesla 3->S does. It's not 2x the car. Granted, just within the last couple days Tesla introduced a $78k version of the MS, but still...that's a big price gap. Still roughly 2x the base M3.
My theory is that the MS and X were developed with far less efficient manufacturing methods and thus have much lower potential margins than the 3/Y...Tesla doesn't want to sell more of them. So they keep the price high.
My point is great to see and experience high end Tesla
GM and Cadillac are two diff sub companies
