    Hello, im just wondering if anyone has any idea if Model S is coming with 4x4. I saw someone mention it in some older post, and that Elon said something about it on the shareholders meeting. Do you think it will come before they launch the model X?

    Sorry if this has been posted before, just couldnt find any threads on it.

    Unless demand falls off for Model S 2WD it would make more business sense to get the X out the door with AWD.

    An AWD MS is the only reason I would part with my current MS. I will trade as soon as an AWD MS is offered. I can't see it happening before the X. We DO have an X reserved though.:smile:

    On the factory tour at TESLIVE someone asked Ted Merendino about the where the 4WD was in development his answer was that "It doesn't exist...." Asked if there was a prototype he confirmed again "No, doesn't exist...."

    No nudge and wink, no deflections, no change of subject, no "I can't comment"; Ted said flat out that it doesn't exist.

    No worries, and I totally believe this. I also believe it WILL come. When it does, I WILL trade.:smile:

    I agree. It would be nice to take this up to Tahoe in the winter.

    +3

    P+ by itself isn't enough to get me to trade up. P+AWD? Yes, in an instant.
