I thought of something when reviewing the options pricing the other night and I was curious if people might agree or not. Would it be possible that the options pricing (no reduction from a $70k+ vehicle) is designed to entice reservation holders into an S and X, while simultaneously thinning out the reservation list due to the 1.5+ year backlog? Tesla could afford to have half of their reservation holders cancel, and they would still have a solid 9 months of lucrative high-margin production assuming not a single additional person reserves. People who are more willing to shell out a lot more money will be getting their cars sooner as well, which is in-line with the signature program for the S and X in years past, and this will also help prevent the Osborne Effect until Model 3 production and demand are at healthy levels. In addition, this segment is a lot more price-sensitive to tax incentives dropping away (US fed tax credit). It seems like starting high would give Tesla plenty of demand levers to pull to help capture additional sales, in order to compensate for a tax credit phase-out. Thoughts? Does anyone else expect the options pricing to trend downward sometime late next year? Edit: Just in case it pops up, I'm 99% certain I'll still be holding onto my day1 reservation!
