I guess you are arguing Don that Tesla doesn't know how to sell EVs? Very few of these people take the cars to the track. They want the fastest from a stop light or a on ramp, with good overall handling while having a green image. The Model 3 is set to sell 10x Bolt EV volumes, even the 2-3x more expensive Model S sells as well as the Bollt EV does (and it is discounted 10 to 20%). If you want fast and cheap, buy a Dodge Charger/Challenger SRT8 or higher. BMWs are relatively slow for their price bracket too.
I'm not opining. I'm just pointing out what Motor Trend had to say about the performance of the Model 3. If you don't agree argue with them.
I didn't say that Tesla didn't know how to sell cars. I am, however, very skeptical of your estimate of how many Model 3s Tesla can sell. Part of that is the experience that Nissan had with the Leaf, where a majority of the pre-orders never turned into sales. And part is that Tesla got everyone all excited about the prospect of being able to buy a $35K Model S with a tax $7500 credit. Lots of those folks may not be so enthused by a Model 3 that costs $45K sans tax credit. In fact, while I don't have the numbers, I doubt that all manufacturers together sell more sedans than 10X the Bolt EV at a $45K price point. There just are not that many buyers in the price range. Toss in the fact that many prospective buyers, in fact perhaps the best prospective buyers, lack access to charging, and the numbers become daunting.
I also have my doubts about how many buyers harbor adolescent fantasies of being race car drivers. But perhaps I'm mistaken on that one. I do know that, with one exception, the women I know who are interested in electric cars are more interested in the Bolt EV and have no interest in the Model 3. Small sample for sure but likely more representative than what you find online.
