    NYT doing report on reservation fees

    Hello Tesla owners/prospective owners,

    I am a reporter with the New York Times and I am doing research for an article on the reservation payments that people pay to reserve a Tesla car. If you want to chat to me about this subject, please email me on peter.eavis@nytimes.com I have spoken with Tesla and they know I am working on this piece and have given me feedback. I am now looking for actual Tesla owners or prospective owners to chat with about the downpayments.

    Many thanks,
    Peter

    What is there to talk about? You either have the $5k/$40k, and put in a reservation, or you don't.

    Peter - Could you point us towards some other stories you've written about alternative energy vehicles?

    Peter's probably more interested in the financial angle to the reservation setup rather than the green car aspect; he's a regular contributor to NYT's DealBook and is ex-WSJ.

    Discussion on the resulting article ended up in this thread: TMC - Tesla's Ambitions Fueled by Customer Down Payments
