For the poll assume

- the new quad has the same 500 mile range but a 0-60 of 2.4 seconds and can do a tank turn. It also includes the hard solar tonneau. Off road tires are an upgrade and you loose 50 miles of range.
- Tesla maintains the existing 3 trims for close to the reservation price... maybe $5k higher for each with 4WS.
- that your existing tri motor reservation is bumped 6 months from when you otherwise would have received it.
- you actually had the difference in money sitting there. Not flush, but you had it available in a pinch.
- FSD is at the price you reserved at and is addition
- Tesla follows the reservation # system in order and allows anybody to upgrade regardless as to existing trim level. So by upgrading the Plaid you skip to the front.

I think the quad offering is somewhat genius once again. The productions cost won be that much higher maybe $8k (excluding development). A lot of people will opt for the upgrade just to have the best, a lot of people will opt for the upgrade to get their CT faster. These people will voluntarily pay more for more. Telsa will keep the high end market share until that is completely saturated. This will make it less likely that people will flip their CT and will also allow Tesla to honor their lower price offerings.

I'll switch to a Quad if the price is reasonable....Tri res @ 69k - Quad @ 75k?

Beyond 79k I'd have a hard time justifying it.
Ditto. Plus $80k would be my limit for what I could afford, and there is no way I am passing on FSD for $7k

This poll is total BS. Tesla will NOT increase the price of the tri-motor trim from 69.9 by 30% or more. Period.
i wouldnt knock it. think about the model 3 when it first came out. base model at unveiling was 35k....and when it came out it was 50k. performance was over 70k

Whoo there. Please re read the poll. The Quad Plaid is a substantial upgrade from the Tri motor.
I supposed that the tri motor with 4ws might cost 75,000 but that is really not the point of the poll.

I would appreciate that TESLA would take into consideration each ones ages, because pretty soon no price will be interesting to me........ haha.
Hope you all get the cyber you have been dreaming of.
Best Regards

Hell, I will be lucky to afford a dual-motor AWD, which is all I need on the frozen prairie. A little extra range would be nice, though.

This is just wrong.

Do some research. People paid pre-order prices for the Model 3. It was even available for some time after at those prices.
