During that Tesla Model 3 Tweetstorm in late March, CEO Elon Musk made a comment that mostly went unnoticed. However, we found it rather intriguing. So, here we'll share it with you:

musk tweets

His comment came before the Tweetstorm got going and it seems like he was trying to foreshadow a few of the other Tweets that would soon follow, like launching the Model 3 only in RWD first and no performance version initially.

In a way, Musk seemed to be downplaying the 3 and up selling the S. He even went on to state that he'll continue to drive the S when the 3 comes out, basically because the S is and always will be the superior car.

This ties in with previous Musk comments too. Like when he stated that if you can afford the S, buy it, you won't be disappointed. If you can't afford the S new, then a CPO S or a Model 3 is for you.

What's your takeaway from Musk's Model S/Model 3 - iPhone 2 versus 3 comment?
