Nice! I think you'll like it. If you're not in a rush, I'd suggest ordering towards September. That'll be their next big delivery rush (end of Q3) and the build quality should be much better. If they have a lot of standing inventory, they may even do a promo like they're doing for the Model 3 - free supercharging for a year if purchased by 6/30.

How long did it take between putting down the $100 deposit and receiving the car?

I just took delivery of my Model 3 on Monday in Fremont. Got the 1 yr of free supercharging for taking delivery prior to 6/30. For $38K this car is a total steal. Such a great buying experience too, though the syncing between your account, app and car created a 20 minute glitch to fix.

I put down my deposit ($2,500) on 1/3/2020. They offered me the car back in March, but my lease doesn't expire until July, so I turned it down and delayed. With the end of quarter being their big delivery push, June was the ideal month to take delivery.

@OCtoSV - the free supercharging for a year is an awesome deal! There's a ton of Model 3 inventory - hopefully they'll have that promo again for buyers at the end of Q3.

If I do buy a fully electric car, it'll be a Porsche instead of a Telsa. I have played around with the configurator for a Taycan 4S and my spec is just under $130k. I think Porsche releases a fully electric Cayenne and Macan in the next 3 years or so.

Congrats and welcome to the club.

For the uninitiated folks here, a year of free supercharging is not a huge $ value at the end of the year. Consider this scenario, if you drove 15k miles in first year and 100% utilized the free supercharging, you'd have consumed 4000-5000 kW. If you had to pay your utility, your cost for this many kW would range from ~$500 (always charged at night) to $2000 (always charged at peak hours).

Good luck with the service and auto body monopoly with Tesla.

Martin - did you read the WSJ review of the Taycan? I think Dan's summary was "3/5 of a Model S for twice the price". After spending 4 days with a brand new 911 last year and 5 days with my Model 3 you couldn't pay me to swap it for the 911. And only $38K!! Tesla has like a 10 year lead on the legacy ICE automakers in everything - software, drivetrain technology, regen braking, battery - they even make their own silicon. I think Porsche AG will be BK inside of 10 yrs.

I'd take a Porsche over a Tesla too.  I think you'll find that those who get a Porsche pay the premium since they like that specific driving experience.  Everyone is different, if you're happy with the Tesla, enjoy your car, no one else will change your opinion since its personal preference.

Family member ran through a Nissan Leaf (weak, but 1st gen) A Tesla S (sweet) and currently has a Tesla X with some issues. Heard the Y has had "growing pains" when it comes to build quality. Soylent Red is considering the Model S which I'd be ok with given it's had some time to mature as a product line. It's not so much the benefits of an electric vehicle we'd want to keep a sharp eye out on, but build quality.

It's a bit of a contradiction when it comes to quality, but I can't wait for the Electric Ural to be produced:

The Model S probably has the least build issues with the X, 3, and Y following. The Y definitely has growing pains. I have some panel alignment and paint imperfections that they need to touch up. Taking it into the service center later this week.
