Yeah, I'm sure it is 100% the fact it is the BEST CAR EVER and having huge tax benefits surely had nothing to do with that.

You need to get laid. May I suggest (from my previous post):

That sounds right. I wanted that car so much on an ED when I was in undergrad. I had a little eBay business and made audio amplifiers, but couldn't afford it. I optioned it pretty basically (6 speed, Interlaces Blue, some interior upgrades etc.) and it it came to about that much even with ED.

My dream car in college was the E60 M5

Fantastic engine on that car. The E92 basically just had to knock off 2 cylinders and go full wet sump.

Glorious engine.

I distinctly remember taking a study break when I was a junior in college. I started browsing m5s online and feeling incredulous over being able to afford a $100k car.

Little did I know that three years later I'd be buying one at 60% off 😊

You're probably right.  I'm probably getting that low t from all of GF's postings though.

I'm older than you, I loved the E39 M, but that was complete fantasy world back then. I do wonder what my next fun car will be after the M4. I love my Tesla for the engineering marvel it is, but it has next to nothing in terms of soul.

If my startup gets Series A, I still wouldn't get a McLaren for optics. If it gets bought out or does an IPO, hello McLaren dealership - I'm guessing my two co-founders will be there with me.

Putting optics aside, wouldn't you still be unable to get one from a series A -- unless I'm grossly misunderstanding it, it's not considered a liquidity event.

40ish for the 04 M3 I think. Can't remember what the E39 M5 costs.  $60k?

E46 M3s were base 46k plus destination so essentially 47 stripped back in 01 and climbed steadily after that. An average example was 55-60k sticker.

E39 M5s were around low to mid 70s.

Tesla received 325k orders for the Model3 this week.

 

40% of car buyers interested in the Model3 said they wouldn't buy it without the 7.5k federal tax credit (according to KBB) The tax credit only applies to the first 200k electric cars that a company sells, and Tesla has already sold 125k globally and is on pace to sell 100k more in the US by the time the Model 3 comes out (end of 2017)

 

 

 

That is going to be interesting.

Hopefully this pushes the thread to the next page so I don't have to see that fat chick.

I suspect that a lot of those people will still be interested when it comes for sale. People are also financially illiterate and don't realize that on a TCO basis, Teslas are effectively about the same as cars at half the price (even with $2 gas). Regardless, I'll be surprised if they can deliver them at all in a timely manner.

Does this number count for $7.5K tax credit or is it just Teslas sold in the US?
