The Model 3 pre-order begins on Thursday. The first Model 3 customers are already in line and camping over night.
Elon Musk will unveil the Tesla Motors Model 3 at 8:30pm PST on March 31. The $35,000 Model 3 is still completely under wraps. This does not stop the first customers to line-up at Tesla Motors stores around the world to be the first to reserve a Model 3 when the stores open on Thursday.

The first guy already lined up yesterday in Sydney. Today several more people have been spotted or have shared on social media lining up at Tesla Stores. Some come prepared with tents and will spend the night outside the stores.

Elon Musk tweeted a photo of the Model 3 reservation line in Australia. It is huge.
Another guy has started to line up at a Los Angeles Tesla Store 43 hours before the Model 3 reservation begins.
People have also been spotted in line at a Tesla Store in Vancouver and several other store locations. So far we have not seen reports of Model 3 lines in Europe. It appears that Australians, Americans and Canadians are the most excited about the Model 3.
I will be ordering a Tesla Model 3 at the Tesla Store in Munich tomorrow morning. I will be there a bit before the 9am store opening. There will be a report from the Model 3 reservation process right after I got my order in.
In Europe the first Model 3 will likely not arrive before 2018. Who knows what is going to happen until then. I would be surprised if the established carmakers like Volkswagen will allow Musk's startup steal the middle class car segment with the Model 3. So far Telsa has been a small player that did not hurt anybody's bottom line. The Model 3 could change that.
A Model 3 reservation requires a $1,000 deposit. The Model 3 reservation agreement is already available for interested customers to read ahead of the pre-order. Tesla Motors and SpaceX employee reportedly are already able to pre-order a Model 3. The Model 3 is going to be the most important car for Tesla Motors.
