Soooo, Thinking you are all set by getting your order in early, you go cheap and select the single motor. Now you want to cry foul and cut in line for a tri-motor. Yah, uh No, we're not going to do that today. And we uh, Yah, We need to take your red stapler as well.There are so many conflicting opinions about which orders will be shipping first and how the motor choice you made years ago will affect when you're actually able to take delivery.
The latest assumption is that somebody who placed a dual motor on the very first day will actually wait longer than somebody who placed a tri-motor months later. That's crazy.
A lot of people say that the best option is to change your order to a tri-motor, but others warn that unless it's done right, there's a risk that you'll end up at the end of the line. That's crazy too... especially since the original order page made no mention that the tri-motor would be first.
So, rather than speculate, I tweeted to Elon Musk that they should call people in order, regardless of their choice in 2019... and ask them if they wanted to stick with the dual and wait... or change to a tri-motor and take delivery sooner.
If you got a call today from Tesla, asking you to choose:
1) Keep your existing dual motor order and wait 6-12 months longer.
2) Change it to a tri-motor... would you do it? I know I would, and there are probably others that would.
Perhaps if enough of us simply asked Tesla to consider this, they would make a ton of extra money from people like me who would chose to upgrade.
