    Hate to ask such a mundane question, but I'm getting conflicting answers via google. We had a one day test drive of a Model S (I'm now waiting for delivery on a new inventory S), and I know there were 2 cup holders built-in under the sliding armrest. I believe there were 2 additional 'insertable' cup holders in the forward center compartment that were not installed.

    So is this the now standard configuration with 2 also in the rear under the AC vent? Color me confused.

    there's a pop out thing in the back under the vents with two for the back seat. It works good but I'm always afraid of it getting snapped off if someone were to step on it.

    The center console thing is a configurable set of dividers that can be configured to be two cupholders. It's deep so ok for water bottles but not so much for a can of pop for instance.

    Thanks jal. That does sound like the tester I drove over the past day.

    I hate the Tesla Rear Cup holders. So cheap and rattle a lot. There are a few aftermarket companies that offer a excellent Rear Floor cup holder console. Super sturdy and combined with a iPad holder, is a great entertainment center.
