It makes sense. It could be the April fools' Joker. I think it is doable. If it is doable, I think Musk will do it. Wild speculation from a know-nothing wombacile, of course, but consider: Every hostage (I mean person) would like to have an emergency power supply. Just to keep the fridge and freezer going and phones and laptops charged during a power outage. A sort of powerwall-type product. Just plug in to charge up and forget about until you need it. When the power fails, take the appliance(s) you want to keep running and plug into the power wall. Is there any hostage on this planet who would not like that? The EPS 10kwh powerwall product has been discontinued. Hint. We have been told a new one will be released in its place. Hint. Now suppose you were dithering about reserving a model 3 Too many in the line ahead of you, so why bother? But with a bonus offer like that thrown in (for a limited time only of course in your region), wouldn't all your the dithering suddenly stop? If the M3 is already good value, think what a no-brainer for value this offer would be!! The reservation count without such an offer would be self-attenuating... because there is a forever diminishing incentive to join the line as the line gets longer. The reservation count with a plug and play powerwall thingy thrown in would be astronomical, IMO. In fact people would most likely reserve after the reveal but before the deadline cuts off feeling happy in the knowledge that even if they won't see their M3 for six years and even though they don't know its price (they can always cancel if it goes too high, of course) they can at least be sure that they will have the bonus + M3 for the same price others pay for the M3 alone. How about that? If I've dragged you this far out of the short term thread you may as well take a moment to consider the implications: Astronomical reservation numbers delivers an undeniable April fools' message to the world. An epic short squeeze on the back of the reservations number. Very relevant to short term term thread but please DO NOT TRADE ON wombat wishfulness. This wombat could very easily be a wrong bat but continuing anyway... How about a 'reserv-a-nometer' clocking up the numbers second by second at tesla.com? ICE OEMs the world over can no longer remain in public denial. Are German Auto executives already changing their language? But what about the Japanese? Will Toyota remain in denial? What if the reservation numbers from Japan are embarrassingly high? The government and ICE OEM boardrooms are suddenly forced to change their language. The capital markets will move on this...in a big way, IMO, but don't ask me how. Thoughts? I don't expect any posts to this thread because all of you experts in the short term thread (I really, really really appreciate your expertise, so don't get me wrong here) who post there frequently would risk looking as silly as a wombacile if you dared to post here, and then discover that there was no plug and play powerwall bonus thingy after all. I invite your comments, just for the sport of it... All I ask is: Please don't get me banned with so many dislikes that it becomes automatic! Be kind to wombats. Just move on...don't kill them. Wombats have no expertise at all, and so no reputation to lose. Please don't trade on anything you hear from the wombat world. We live underground, but we're not like moles. Moles are something else! And this wombat happens to be a longbat, no options, so nothing to lose on that score there either.
