I think because they were rushing to get those Ys out to meet quotas. :)

Based on the sales numbers of the 3s... Tesla is going to do really well as I see those cars everywhere. Eventually I think the Y will surpass the 3 as their top seller.

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.
I used to think so as well until I had each car for a few days. I have a lot of friends who swear they could never move away from throbbing performance V8s or Porsche engines, but my experience tracks well to this showdown:

Model Y looks really good. I see them more on the road now. I can't tell if it's Y or X when I see them drive by quickly. The only way is by looking at the side door handles.

I liked the look of 3 more than S since it looked more modern without the chrome end. Model Y carries exactly the same concept from the 3 which I like better. It might really be the biggest selling Tesla vehicle. (until Cybertruck comes...)

Anyone knows when they would start leasing Model Y?

Check out the EV Cayenne in a few years, maybe USC can finally convert you over to his side.  And then you'd have a EV cheat too.  I was looking at the Taycan, but will wait to see what the EV Macan looks like and the Taycan should have a couple years under its belt if the Macan doesn't do it for me.

Electric vehicles are prime time.

BMW should will have them in the next few years... they already have a PHEV X5 (terrible all-electric range though).

EV motor are far superior than ICE but there's just something more fun and satisfying with ICE, especial the sound of V8 from X5M when you press on the gas pedal.

Look at this way, would you rather be in bed with a supermodel with no personality or a screaming porn star? :)

Enough said. Now I know who to go to for car advice on TI :-)

Yeah that’s why I don’t think I’ll ever get an EV. Although it’s probably only a matter of time before EVs have an option to create the sound and feel of an ICE. Tesla will sell that option for $10k.

Like the auto pilot feature for Tesla that cost an extra $8k. (There was a discount but that deal is over)

I doubt this analogy is a slam dunk. I am willing to bet a sizable portion of the crowd would opt for the supermodel rather than a pornstar.

Also screaming is overrated  :D

Would you rather marry (buy) a supermodel or a pornstar?

But then again, that's why I lease. :)

Yeah, I'm waiting for an EV Macan but I won't buy it in the first year of production as there are always bugs that will need to be ironed out. I will keep the last ICE Porsche GT car in my garage when Porsche goes turbo or hybrid with their GT cars.

I wonder if we'll see an EV Macan. The problem for Porsche is they will lose boatloads on any EV car they made. I just traded in a 2017 eGolf for my M3 as it was coming up to the end of the lease and VW didn't have another EV. Why? Because they lose huge $$ on every eGolf. Only Tesla has mastered how to eke out a profit with EVs, and that required billions of $$ in Obama green funding (i.e. taxpayer dollars). Unless the German taxpayers are willing to fund a similar endeavor Porsche will slow roll all EV development - they can't afford it.
