Tesla’s Model 3 Finally Unveiled at a Very Reasonable Price

Cars October 1, 2016

Tesla’s Model 3 car has debuted publicly. The car, 10 years in the making, was introduced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk at the Tesla studio in Hawthorne, California today.

The range of the car was put at 215 miles by Musk, and he said that while it will be one of the safest cars available globally, “you will not be able to buy a better car for $35,000, even with no options.” The price is a considerable reduction from the previous Model S and Model X which came to around $100,000 after tax deductions.

He said he was “fairly confident” the car would be available by the end of 2017.

The company says they already have over 130,000 $1,000-down preorders for the Model 3, and the number is increasing.

With 7,200 Superchargers coming standard with the car,it will be able to do 0-60 in 6 seconds. It will be available in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, and the car will fit 5 adults.

The car will also have “more cargo capacity than any gasoline car of the same external dimensions,” according to Musk, who stated that the Model 3 is about where the driver “wants to go.”

Offroad Karmann Ghia

Offroad Karmann Ghia

You’ve probably seen offroad VW bugs before, and we’ve recently talked about offroad VW vans (convertibles with reinforced roll cages), but here’s another sand dune-happy German model: the Karmann Ghia.

Actually these have competed in the Baja 1000 races (various particular Ghias), including one that came up for sale recently on 401 Dixie Volkswagen. It’s the orange one with the #3 in the photo gallery “[T]his VW coupe is said to have been prepped for off-road racing in the late 1970s. It received some substantial suspension modifications, the quite necessary oversized tires, skid plate, cut fenders, and a hearty racing motor to propel it. And if that weren’t grin-worthy enough, it allegedly competed at the 1979 and 1981 Baja 1000.” We put a bug in there too for comparison and good measure.
