      Its one thing to say that you have other priorities or don’t think it’s worth it, but to say that you make $400k or $600k a year and can’t afford a $50k-$100k car doesn’t make sense.

      Depends on how you value the product. Ap1, Ap2 and so. Give it another five years, sure you would have a better functional product. Build Quality, Service and so on.

      They're still figuring out how to build cars from my perspective and always first isn't the best. Tesla is having the iPhone 3GS moment now.

      Yeah, that’s totally fair. You don’t currently think that it’s worth the investment.
      But you certainly CAN afford it.

      And an other thing I slightly hate about the company is layoffs. I actually value the company's culture before I put my money into them. I try to not associate with companies which have shitty practices. I'm not against EV but Tesla isn't ethical in human values dept.

      A car is never an investment expect Ferrari and Lamborghini.

      Yes, yes, it’s more of a liability.

      Can I buy it? Absolutely. Can I "afford" it along with all other expenses I need to pay to live in a safe area of Bay Area that's not a 2hr commute to work? Nope.

      CoL is 400% higher in Cali over where I am, so I get how it could be tight there but on East Coast.. 200k is like 400k+ on West. And like was said a Model 3 is basically the same cost as most SUV or luxury car.

    Buying anything other than a Tesla in 2019 is like buying a horse and carriage

      Ignorant statement. You do realize a cheap gas car like a civic is way cheaper to own and maintain compared To a model 3 right?

      My comment had ZERO to do with TCO. I’m simply talking about how far ahead Tesla is from the rest of the industry

    I'd only lease one, never buy. Don't know how durable these will be.

      Same. Mostly due to the random hardware changes. Durability is fine.

    According to Elon, the only strategy that makes sense is to buy as many model 3 as you can and earn positive cash flow through robotaxi service.

      I’m not a weirdo but a red model X is the only car I am sexually attracted to

      Elon spent more time perfecting the red than any other color we offer. If you’re going to get a Tesla this is what I’d opt for. 👌
