As to the actual topic, I don't think that Bolt owners are Tesla wannabes anymore than a Toyota Highlander owner is a BMW M3 series wannabe. The cars compete in different market segments (hatchback versus sedan) and potentially at different price points. The only similarity is that they both have an electric powertrain.
I personally don't care for sedans. I prefer hatchbacks, whether it's a liftback like the Prius, an SUV like the Highlander, a Bolt, or even a minivan, as they offer more versatility. So a Model 3 was never really in the cards, despite how sexy it might be.
