OUR DEMOGRAPHICS

I am curious as to what type of people the reservation holders are. Let's share some personal information while we wait for our babies to come.
I am a 48 year old internist. I have been in practice in Gurnee Il for 20 years. Married, 2 teen boys. My hobby is building wooden ship models. I drive a Chevy Volt. Now you know!

Waning days of 57th year. Retired Navy, currently working in aeronautics industry. Drive a 2006 350 Z Roadster and 2007 Prius. Having Solar City do an install on our home this year. Living the dream north of LA.

51 year old music educator / business owner in Atlanta. My wife drives a Smart Car convertible - which we both love. Funny is that she's the one who just decided we need to upgrade to the performance model. I'm excited that they just announced there will be a service center in Atlanta. Now all we need is a supercharger station between Atlanta and Hilton Head and we'll have it made.

I am a 34 year old (33 when put my Model S deposit) married guy from the Boston area. I was born and raised in India, came to the US in '99 as a 21 year old grad student, and been here ever since. I am software engineer, have been one all my adult life. I am very environmentally conscious - seldom use the elevator or clothes drier, prefer to take the stairs and line-dry my clothes. I would love to be more respectful towards my planet, and the Model S is another step in that direction.

We currently have no cars and take the T (the public transportation) everywhere. Once in a while, we borrow my in-law's 94 Lincoln Towncar. As smooth as the ride is, I feel really guilty driving it. We aren't sure how we will use the Model S once we have it as we will continue to use the T. We will have to kid ourselves (a lot) and pay $1200+ loan installment, $200+ parking, and $75 insurance per month.

My favorite quote: Live and let live.

I'm 33. Dutch-American. I run a product design company in NYC (formerly in Singapore for many years). Model S and a Model X! :D

Oh, and, I own a 2012 Audi Q7, that I just bought new, with 5.6k miles on it. I'm selling it once my Model S arrives! :D

gah, im really bad at this: NYC, manhattan

38 year old. Happily married for 12 years and have 3 kids. I currently drive c300 and gave away my bmw 550i lease. My c300 lease will be over in feb next year and i will get my Tesla s on december. I manage my own business Travel For Less Inc in fremont and guess what i am 4 miles away where they are building my car Tesla. I pass by and mostly i see them test driving. Can't wait to get mine. I will keep this car for long time.

29 year old special education teacher in Kentucky. Still trying to figure out if I can afford an S. Currently, I have a pristine 1992 MR2, 1989 4Runner, and a 1976 BMW R90/6. Looks like they'll have to be going :/

My wife and I are 39 years old, #1462, non sig, ordered Dolphin Gray Performance with carbon fiber, child seats (we have 5 and almost 4 year old boys), my wife - management consultant, me - pediatric surgeon. Married 13 years, met in college, extended family all on the East Coast, we live in Seattle. The S will be only my third car since I was 16. First one '88 Chrysler LeBaron GTS (geriatric mobile), my second one a'00 Honda Accord with 105K miles. Our other car is a '09 Subaru Forester. Made deal with my wife - I stop talking about getting '67 GTO until I'm 50 and she agrees to Performance S.

Kathleen;
You have a wife? Or are you using her sign-in?
;)

59, real estate investor (income properties only), do what I want (unless my wife disagrees), 81 Delorean, 2002 NSX, 07 Scion XB (for the kayaks), 07 Prius, 2011 Leaf (going away as soon as the Tesla arrives). Love to fly. Switching to all electric. Hear that Tesla will be producing a new sports car designed from the ground up (I plan to be one of the first to order). Live in Ptld, Oregon.

No reason Kathleen shouldn't have a wife. I think you'd be surprised how many same-sex married couples are in this community. We are one (M&L is Matt and Larry).

33 yrs from Poznan, Poland. Married with 2yr old son. Placed deposit on Sig. Currently driving A8 TDI. Past cars: Mustang, Mitsu Evo, Ferrari 458, Big fan of general aviation. Long on TSLA :)

Thanks M&L. I wanted to post a similar response (although married with the opposite sex) but I had difficulty hitting the right tone (not that Brian H would care much about the right tone, but I do).

VB;
What you know about what I care about is less than nothing. I.e., it's into the Definitely Erroneous Zone.

57 year old lawyer with lawyer wife, no kids, Chicago area. Have 2007 Lexus ES350, 28k miles, 2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo 16.5k miles and the toy my wife won't let me get rid of: 1993 Honda del Sol with 30k miles bought new. Selling Lexus and probably Honda, wife willing, (ANYONE OUT THERE INTERESTED?) when Model S arrives.

51 year old money manager in Memphis. Currently splitting between a Roadster and 2009 Jaguar XJ Portfolio (which will leave when the Model arrives). By the way, following the same sex electric car theme, my sisters-in-law just got a Leaf.

I wonder if any reservers are TM production line workers (ploughing back in some of that "as much OT as you can handle without getting goofy" pay now starting to pile up).

Are we all fifty?

I turned 50 this year, partner is 51. We were early save the planet adopters, were sold on Tesla after seeing the presentation at the LA auto show several years ago.

He's a corporate middle manager from the aerospace world and I'm an X-corporate creative director now managing our investments and creating art. We are investment risk-takers into real estate investing, property renovations, art, antiques, wine and travel. We have houses in San Diego, Pasadena, and the northern Sonoma coast. Our S will shuttle us between them powered by the sun.
