    HI folks

    I am just curious what car do your currently drive? Are you trading it in or keeping it? Let's discuss!

    Starting from me:

    2009 Nissan GTR, Silver, 14000 miles.

    I am keeping the car because Tesla trade in program gives me 40,000 dollars for it. I prefer to keep it and track it if i want to while my X is my daily for my new born and family trips.

    Thanks.

    2004 Chevy Corvette, Yellow, Convertible, 85000 miles.
    I love this car and I am going to keep it at least for now :) and makes no financial sense to sell it either.
    2007 Ford Freestyle AWD, Blue, 174000 miles - going to keep this one too for home depot/lowe's trips :)

    We mostly drive our Prius (which we are keeping) and will be trading in a 2005 Chevy Suburban, which has been our trusty road trip car for almost 11 years.

    Wow, my wife is driving a Macan as well. A very fun car in a dummy shell. The rear truck does not even close with the Key Fob. I guess the X will solve that problem. : )

    Nissan Leaf. It's not a perfect fit living on mountain roads with lots of elevation gain and loss in my routine driving, but it's been good enough for me to realize the potential in BEV's and never want another ICE vehicle again. I'll be selling it for the ≡.

    2002 Subaru Outback with 60,000 miles.

    We tend to hold cars a long time. This will be a big upgrade.

    Driving a MB GL, waited for more than a year for the X 7 seater, greatly disappointed after Meet The Model X , Keeping the MB GL , going for Maserati Levante reserved - $1,500/= deposit yesterday, will wait to see if the second and third row seating improves.

    Awesome cars. I guess those aren't so awesome anymore compare to Model X. I am very happy for all of you guys for getting the Model X. I will also be taken delivery this Sunday at 5:00PM. Super Excited!

    Mostly our Model S, which we're keeping, but our second car is a Honda Odyssey, which will be going away. I just cleaned that thing the other day and will miss the very well designed utility of it. It's an incredibly versatile vehicle with just about everything we need except for that one nasty issue.. it's an ICE.

    I see you have an emotional bond with it as it served you well. Your X is on its way. No more ICE.
