Ok, so now that I've had some time to read and think through all of the info that has come out in the last 24 hours, I'm getting concerned about Tesla selling 20k cars a year. Now, before anyone gets butthurt, I'm a huge fan of Tesla and their tech, and I want this company to succeed more than anyone I know. I think what concerns me the most after seeing the option/price list is that Elon's ego is too big for his own good. What I mean by that is, when selling something in this price range, you cannot *sugar* on ANY customers. By making the base Pack car so unnatractive that the demand will be almost 0, Tesla is going to alianate many customers. It's very obvious their goal is to upsell customers to a bigger battery. The sad thing is, all the 160 pack car would need is a QC port(even at reduced power), and a little better get up and go. While 6.5 seconds 0-60 is ok for a mediocre EV like the leaf, it is pathetic for a Tesla that costs $60k. For me it's either a base pack car or a sport, no inbetweens. I don't need the range, but I'm definately not driving a $60+k slug. The problem for me is, after reading all of the negative feedback from people that want a base pack, I'm not 100 sure I want to plop down $100k for a car from a company with a shady future. I'm writing this thread in the hopes that Tesla reconsiders their choice with the direction of the base pack car. I know that if they do, they will sell a whole lot more cars. I would buy a base car and a sport model.
