    Will you spend the full $35k+tax for the base Model 3?
    Will you spend $44k+tax for the large battery?

    I would not buy a 3, it's too small.

    Of course it would be awesome to get the tax credit but frankly those cars are great deals at full price. I mean what are you going to buy...an ICE:eek:

    I would buy it eventually, but the time frame would be extended due to not having to hit that deadline.

    How many things do you buy when the price goes up over 20%?

    What kind of time frame? Or might you wait until all wrinkles (aka employee beta testing) are ironed out? Or... wait for the Model Y that Elon said is going to be based on the Model 3 platform?

    No, I'm not going to buy a model 3 after the tax credit ends because I'm busy buying a Performance Model 3 while there's still a tax credit. By the time the tax credit expires, I'll already have an awesome Model 3 so there's no reason to buy another in the near future. Probably save up for a Model Y at that point.

    Seems like this should be a poll.

    Anywho, the tax credit has no effect on our purchasing decision.

    Nope. I would just wait to see what happens with the prices without it, or buy something else that still qualifies for the tax credit.

    I don't know if I'd be comfortable buying dates with women in San Francisco... Are they guaranteed to be women? Especially worried if he/she tried to charge 20% more.

    You don't pay for the date. You pay when you go on the date for things such as food and entertainment.

    There's not a lot of men pretending to be women in SF. Thailand on the other hand....

    There was a handsome celebrity, forget who, who was caught with a hooker.
    The press asked why he would need to hire a hooker to have sex with him.
    "I don't pay them for the sex, I pay them so they are gone in the morning."
