    So I put in my reservation of the Model 3, but immediately afterwards two years started to fell like an eternity. Sure, an S is available faster, but is way more expensive, so waiting I will be. But... Waiting is so difficult!

    In the meantime, for existing Tesla owners, how difficult was your wait? If another model had been available faster, how tempted would you have been?

    For students like me, I may be able to save up for one by then if I put $1000 down now

    I'm right there with you Rene. I pre-ordered on the 11th, I don't even want to know how long that means I'll be waiting. But, I know the wait will be well worth it!

    When I saw the initial numbers, I figured it would be a long time. Then they grew and grew, and I wondered how long it would be. 2 years is crazy -- but I guess you could lease another car in the meantime for the wait, rather than buy. Not sure I could do it though (wait).

    I don't mind waiting. I have at least two good years left with my current vehicle, so hopefully I am ready when it is my turn.

    I have a MS60 right now and LOVE it. And now that you can get an MS60 starting at $58,500 w/ Autopilot I'm lead to believe that I would be building a $50K+ version of the Model 3 anyways to get more features. So it's a matter of if that $8K is worth 2 years to you.

    Plus you'll have to invest it to keep up with inflation. There was a story (I think maybe on Tesla site) about a teen who had some money to invest and made enough to buy a model S.

    Finally bit the bullet and put my name on the list. My Prius is over 11 years old and in good shape. I just turned 100k miles. It's in great shape so another 2 years shouldn't be a problem.
