Yesterday morning I pre-ordered my Tesla Model 3.

I was the eleventh person in line after arriving at 5:00 am. By the time I left, there were more than 300 people waiting to be among the first to get their hands on a Model 3.

Later that day I spent an unacceptable amount of time on Twitter, following all the feeds about the Model 3. It's probably the most fun I've ever had stalking Tesla geeks like me. I really enjoyed reading all the reasons people ponied up $1,000 to reserve their new Teslas. And that got me thinking …

Why do so many people want a Model 3?

So here are ten reasons I came up with. Enjoy!

Reason #1

Because they said it cound't be done.

Reason #2

It's an incredibly sweet car!
