    I have been planning for Tesla # 2 for quite some time. I also have two day-one, California based Model 3 reservations.

    I must admit, the closer Model 3 gets the more I am thinking "$100K? I could get two 3's for that money."

    Will have some tough choices to make come September/October. Exciting times.

    If I can get 300 miles range and a comfortable seat for $50K after rebate I'm mighty tempted to skip the second S.

    How about you?

    The one factor which could tip me back to the Model S is comfort:

    -interior noise levels
    -Ride quality.

    I also think the S is and always will be more beautiful than the proportions of the 3, but for half the price I could live with a 3.

    IMO, once Model S get's new 2170 battery pack it'll get bump in luxury features or technology to separate it from M3 line.

    You may not be alone in your thinking after seeing the January production report from Tesla.
