    I'll start.

    1. My configuration will be available October 2018. By then it will be obsolete and there will be better alternatives from other car companies.
    2. It's not what Elon promised, a 20% smaller Model S. It's still too big.
    3. Interior doesn't have spaceship like controls.
    4. Interior is..., well, let's be polite.

    The 3 you get in October 2018 will be whatever is being built at that time. So by definition it won't be obsolete. But enjoy whatever other EV you decide to buy that you think is better. I don't know of any that actually exist.

    You're supposed to be on the other thread, ..." Not Cancelling ..."

    Darn, east of Colorado. Where are all the cancellations from the west coast people? C'mon, don't you want your $1k back?

    I agree with OP.

    I'm waiting for the competitor that pops up overnight with nationwide supercharger network and Nvidia PX2 drive unit and level 2 autonomy. And also 35k for the base.

    SUCK IT Tesla.

    Good for you, Alavek! We should all cancel after this info release!

    Me? Um, I'm going to wait just a bit (I'm really busy right now), but all of you, get your cancellations in! No, no, I'll be cancelling right along with you, trust me! I want that vehicle-as-if-I-designed-it with technology and pricing leaps above this crummy Model 3, just like you! What do you mean "ploy to get further ahead in line"? ;)

    The Model S has been around since 2012 I would hardly say it's obsolete.

    I might wait it out to see the dual motor (or P Model) performance specs, but I am most likely cancelling and sticking with used Model S's. Losing a full second on my current performance doesn't really seem worth it for me right now.

    I think it might be difficult to go from an S to the 3. That's why I'm glad I decided to wait on the S until after I get the 3. I figured I might end up deciding to get two 3's instead that way, but the other way around was never going to happen.

    1. Not sure what you mean. Like TexasEV said, you'll get what they have at the time and it will be the most modern thing on the line at that time. If you're concerned that perhaps they will add features later that you would like, then IDK. But that is the risk you take when buying and configuring and Tesla.
    2. When did Elon promise 20%? The 3 is 10% shorter by my math, so what?
    3. You expected a Tie Fighter, or maybe the Millennium Falcon? Sorry the cockpit didn't meet YOUR expectations.
    4. Looks fine to me, for a pretty awesome sub-$50k car.

    Lastly, you're crazy to cancel your reservation...this is a pretty cool car for the $$ IMHO. Good luck.

    True. I want a smaller car with the 4 second acceleration I have now. That would be a ton of fun, just like the Audi S4 we sold yesterday for the P85D. I would give up quite a few creature comforts for that. So I still hope there will be PxD Model 3 in the works.

    I'm only considering it because I'm in Scotland and RHD delivery is estimated as 2019 now.

    I love the Model 3 and wish I could get it sooner. Need rid of my diesel BMW before 2019 though which is the only reason for possibly cancelling my reservation.

    Considering the fact that it's mid 2017....I understand you canceling your order.

    Can't you understand the thread title? You're supposed to be on the not cancelling thread.

    Canceling mine because I bought a Model S a month ago. Waited to make sure the 3 wasn't so amazing that I'd want to downgrade and now that everything is out there, can't see the value in it over the much better (for my needs at least) Model S. Plus I can only imagine the number of early adopter issues that will come up in the first 1-2 years. No thanks.

    Go to the Not cancelling thread, your input here is meaningless.

    I think you had expectations way too high :)

    Tesla was pretty upfront that the beta car interior was production-intent. They delivered on exactly what they had promised (with perhaps the option pricing being higher than many expected).

    Things you can do with your $1000 reservation refund:
    • Buy the new iPhone 8
    • Go out for a really nice night on the town and have about $800 in change
    • Buy a years worth of gas for your gasser
    • Get 10 pairs of shoes (don't be cheap)
    • Adopt 4 rescue dogs
    • Pay off that unexpected dental bill from last month
    Go ahead, it's easy. Just do it.
