This has been brought up on multiple threads so I thought I might take a stab at addressing it. People keep mentioning the the timelines presented to begin manufacturing the One's, then the Extremes, then the Utras, then the Sports. I thought I would put my two cents in because I suppose that is what we are all here to do. I have found people keep discussing the One, Extreme and the Ultra like they are fundamentally different runs. I might be missing something, but besides the solar roof (and possibly a different stereo?) the two cars will likely have all the same hardware. Much of that hardware just had to be software locked on the Ultra models until the owners unlock the features via OTA. This allows them to build as many or as little Extremes as they want and then switch to the Ultra trims without any additional delays. It may even make it possible for them to build the trims at the same time. They of course will want to get as many Extremes out of the door as they can to start bringing in that $, but I think its possible we will see batches of both Extreme and Ultra trims being released at the same time in the latter half of 2023. This is all speculation, I have no background on car manufacturing but that is probably how I would set it up. Just my two cents.
