Interesting discussion with T≡SLA's boss in Germany... Sorry if article is in German, yet I know some here will be happy... :germany:!
I was intrigued to read he (like me :D) understood at some point that his future should be with T≡SLA rather than with BMW! ;)
Title of the article: 'We set the standards, BMW & Co are trailing behind' ...
key highlights:
- Model S sales in Germany now stronger than Porsche Panamera
- significant expansion of stores & infrastructure foreseen short- to mid-term (e.g.
Will double stores from 13 to 26 by YE17, highlights existing SC network compared to essentially just an announcement from the CCS coalition...)
- Sees formidable growth potential with Model ≡ arrival, including in company fleets

Here is another quote from the same guy and he claims we won't get our Model 3 before end of 2018.
I sure hope this guy is simply wrong and making unsubstatiated claims.

Since this is the official estimate provided to us all in LHD Europe, irrespective of reservation date, we should not be surprised that the country manager of the major car market in this region sticks to the 'party line' at this point, oder? ;)

No worries, things will start to get a lot clearer in 9-10 months or so... :)
