Hard question. When you cash-up for your Roadster with a reserve payment of 30, 50 or $100k, I heard that your money does not go into an escrow account like other high dollar (including car) companies do. This would mean current buyers are building the company. This also means if (heaven forbid) Tesla goes teats up you would be lucky to get your money back. The lawsuits could go on forever. Some make the argument that it's a rich person's toy so they can afford such a risk/losst. I actually find that most wealthy people have gotten that way by not being cavalier with hard earned money. If true, those not comfortable with possibility of such a scenario should wait for the supply to be ahead of demand and buy their Roadster from a showroom. Does anyone have deatils on this?
