The Y with 7 seats looks extremely crammed.  Been trying to find a decently priced used X.  New ones are too expensive.  But I feel like everyone in Irvine has a X.

I see more 3s than anything.

I’ll probably get the Y in 2021 if there isn’t anything better.

Still waiting for VW’s all-electric minvan. :)

I think I’d rather get a cybertruck instead of a used X...  really would like a cybervan if they ever make it

I would rock a performance model something or other, assuming I don't go broke in the upcoming depression.  I would need to clean out some parking spaces first though.   

I was seriously toying with the fantasy of getting a used porsche, then it was like Captain Obvious smacked me in the back of the head.  If I want performance, it's hard to beat a dual motor Tesla.

Y for the wife, Cybertruck for me.

But if there is a Cybervan... I’m down.

once money isn't an issue, I"m seriously considering a cyber truck if the no paint, pure metal (or just a clear boat) finish is available)

so I dont' have to worry about paint chip and dings, as my current car is very prong to them .... :P

I do not think the 7 seater Y will be effective. The X 6 or 7 seater is already cramped in the rear 2 seats. 

They should really make a Model V (van). Otherwise get an Arrival and pimp it out.

So does anyone know someone who got their Y?

Maybe I'll just wait until they start leasing it like the 3.

I know someone that got one. I want to trade one of my Teslas for a Y because of power lift gate and hatchback. I'm not foolish with my money though so I probably will drive this car into it's death. I drove my last SUV for 15 years before getting my Tesla.

If I had the choice between the 3 and the Y back then I would have got a Y for sure. Maybe when the carpool sticker on one of my cars expires I'll consider trading for it.

I saw a Y heading towards Pavilion Park.  I would buy a Y over a 3.

Wasn't there an article on a bad bumper/trunk design on the Y...if you get into a rear fender bender, the whole trunk/lift gate may need to be replaced/fixed making it more expensive, whereas if the its only the bumper its cheaper to fix.  Does that go into your consideration into buying a Y?  I'm not interested in the Y, but just wondering about others who are considering the Y if this deters them.

That's what insurance is for. :)

I mean... if it's a rear fender bender.. then the other guy would have to pay for the repair, unless the ass hole is uninsured.

then maybe consider an insurance plan with less premium.

Isn't insurance for Tesla models more expensive than their luxury ICE counterpart?
