Several people are camping out in the Bay Area to make sure they get their hands on the latest Tesla.
Jesus Medrano and Joe Neuman will likely get a Tesla before many others do. The two are camping out by the Sunnyvale Tesla dealership to put a $1,000 deposit down for the new Model 3.
"We've got a projector to throw movies up on a wall," Neuman said. "Maybe we'll buy a screen from Best Buy next door, power, movies and have some fun with it."
Tesla, after selling a lot of its Model S and making a more recent splash with its Model X, is promising a much less expensive car this time around. The Model 3 is expected to start around $35,000.
"Been wanting one for a while," Medrano said. "I was thinking about getting the S, but I found out this was coming out for a much lower price, and it fits perfectly."
Several people were also seen camping out late Wednesday at the Tesla dealership in Walnut Creek.
Tesla said delivery for the Model 3 will start in late 2017.
