Tesla Model 3 Reservation Line South Lake Union

So I was driving down 9th Ave in South Lake Union this morning and saw this long line of people wrapped around the block between Harrison and Republican. Being the inquisitive person that I am, I asked these people what they are in line for! Wouldn’t you?  Turns out that Tesla is  opening a wait list for a new model car, the Model 3, which hasn’t been released yet.  The car is going to be unveild in a webcast at 8:30pm PST on Thursday… pre-orders were opening up at 10:00am.  Does that mean that all these people that were in line to put $1000 down to be on the list for a new car that they haven’t even seen yet?  Those cars are running $35,000 and will go 200 miles on a full charge.
