Eight days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk set the internet ablaze with news that the Model 3 would begin production, the new budget-friendly sedan is a reality.

This was what Musk tweeted Saturday evening.

And then …

As for who gets the first model that’s been built, Musk said it’s reserved for whichever customer is the first to pay the full price. Musk said he owns the first Model X and the first Roadster, and now, it sounds like he’ll get the first Model 3, as well.

The Model 3 starts at about $35,000, and Musk has said he expects Tesla to produce 20,000 units per month by December. By 2018, he expects to produce 500,000 units per year.
