The other thing we are forgetting here is that by adding the US AND delaying the car's release, they are getting the benefit of any quarterly component price reductions. The cars get cheaper to make every quarter as they get volume and time price reductions. Manufacturers ALWAYs ask for a roadmap to lower prices further out in time. In addition, adding an extra shift reduces cost by leveraging economies of scale. I.E. more cars for the same depreciation of capital, rent, HR payroll etc. This is just bullshit. They should have said that the price is the same for all the people on the list as off Sept 1st AND to guarantee those prices, the deposits must be non-refundable. Instead they were assholes.
