until the $25K Tesla is shipping
I doubt it'll ship in the US. If it does, it will likely be expensive versions selling first and then they'll delay and/or make it tricky to get that car, possibly including removing it from their web page or having some excuse to raise the price. Every Tesla since Model S has followed a pattern like this.
People claimed here they "can't" do that w/the 3 but they did... they started with the $49K version (viewtopic.php?p=527767#p527767
). "$35K" version was delayed for ages.
Model S was originally "under $50K" after tax credit: https://web.archive.org/web/20130105035 ... e-increase
. They did that even before 40 kWh S shipped: https://web.archive.org/web/20130401060 ... eed-target
. Eventually, base S prices rose to $70-ish K and there's been no tax credit for awhile.
