Orders Opening For Tesla Model 3 With AWD & High Performance Next Week [Hot!]

Aside from the one-year wait on a Model 3 with air suspension, there’s no new info on when a base Model 3 (you know, the $35,000 one) will be available. As I’ve said before, I think Tesla could get absolutely slammed for a long delay on that version, but whether that could make a dent in Tesla’s brand is uncertain.

My Model 3 order page still shows the base Model 3 as targeted for late 2018.

What about interior colors and materials beyond the all-black interior you have to get if you want to order one today? Who knows?

Update: Model 3 production with the white interior will begin in July:
