    They have been doing it for several years now. Ask the Model X Signature buyers about the $40,000 three year interest free loans.

    My point here is that it took, 35 hours, and a very small/managable deposit to make this happen! Plus: They have accumulated a significantly larger amount of money! The Model 3 deposit situation wasn't created to create hundreds of millions in interest/equity free capital, S/X was.
