How many will get impatient and just move on to something else?
How long would you wait?
I know a Model 3 owner who waited like 2 YEARS after he drove 4 hours and waited in line to put down his deposit on the first day.
As much fun as it might be to have the first one on your block, I can’t imagine that there’s any way that I’d ever be willing to wait months or a year to buy a car that I won’t even get to test drive before signing the papers. Same with ever paying over MSRP for a car. Nope, I’ll just wait - thanks.
The only exception would be if I had the means and connections to buy a limited production car that was all but guaranteed to increase in value (see: Ford GT, etc.). Don’t think I ever have to worry about finding myself in that situation - ha!
