The wait is finally over, folks! According to a tweet from Elon Musk, on Sunday, July 2 we will finally…find out the Model 3’s release date. Okay, so we’ll still have to wait a little bit for the actual release. And we still have to wait a couple days for the release date. But…the wait for the wait is almost finally over! Almost!
We’ve known for some time that Tesla was planning to unveil the final production version of the Model 3 in July and that the configurator would go up some time near the end of July with limited options available. And we must be getting close to release, because we’ve been seeing pictures of release candidates with new revelations almost every day lately. And just today, in response to a fan’s desperate-sounding tweet (“please have mercy. I don’t care if you say July 31st – but the speculation on Model 3 final release date has to stop”), Elon finally confirmed the date…of the date he’ll announce the Model 3 release date. Maybe. Or at least there will be some sort of news. On Sunday:
Will we get a configurator? Will we see the final production version of the car? When will deliveries start? When will non-employee deliveries start? Hopefully Musk will “have mercy” and answer all these questions for us….on Sunday.
(Congratulations, member of the modern internet media, you’ve managed to turn a three-word tweet into a 241-word article. Pulitzer Prize, here we come!)
