Howdy, On a whim, I dropped by the Menlo Park showroom today while I was out doing errands. It was a bit overcast, so I thought it would be a good chance to see my short list of colors outside on a less than sunny day. Anyway, while I was there, I had a little chance to chat with Tesla folks, and spent a little time with the same white Model S (FR000109, I think?) that was on static display at the last Palo Alto event. I must say, if you're finding yourself a bit too caught up in all the angst on the forums, and you can drop by a showroom and just sit in the car for a bit, it sure makes that stuff disappear. Anyway, new news: The Universal Mobile Connector will cost $500 if you want to purchase an extra. This is one of the questions I had in terms of my final configuration, because I don't want to have to plug and unplug an L14-50 every evening. My plan was to either put in a dedicated UMC for my garage (carrying the other in the car), or just put in a HPWC so that I would have a dedicated wall-mounted charging station. Now that I know the price of a second UMC, I will be putting in a HPWC and carrying the included UMC in the car. Supercharging for the 60kWh cars will not require additional hardware. Final details are still forthcoming, but the "TBD" stuff on the web site is most likely related to whether there will be a fee to use the chargers, and/or whether there's a limit to their use under the battery warranty. For me, that's fine -- I expect my use of the Superchargers to be a rare event, so I don't mind paying a reasonable fee to use one, and I can't imagine a scenario in which I would use them often enough to put undue wear on the pack. If you need frequent Supercharger use, the 85kWh seems like the way to go. Anyway, still some questions to be answered here, but the bit about no additional hardware was good to know.[EDIT: See below] Next week's event in Palo Alto is expected to have a pretty good assortment of cars. I'm pleased to be going as a guest of another TMC member, so hopefully I'll be able to see my final color choices on the cars before I finalize on the following Monday! I'm also hoping that some of the latest production cars that George mentioned in his blog will be at that show, because that will be a good indication of how things have progressed on fit & finish. By the way, the car in the showroom had some music on a USB stick. I was able to find a song I am familiar with ("Sail" by AWOLNATION) -- this is a track with a ton of bass, and it sounded just fine with the EQ set flat and the speakers centered, with the windows open. Turning the Dolby on and off definitely made the sound different. If anything, the bass was a bit beefier with the Dolby off. I'm sorry I didn't bring my newly-purchased USB stick with my hand-picked tunes, but this was an impromptu visit. I will drop by again and/or bring the stick to the upcoming event to try it out, but having tried that one track, I'm feeling fine about the audio system. All in all, it was a great visit. The Tesla folks were super helpful and friendly as always. There was a Signature Red car out front in addition to the white car inside. Dang, that red is a beauty. Oh, I was there for about an hour and a half, and there was a steady stream of people visiting, looking at the car, talking about putting down deposits, etc. Made me feel very good about the future for this great car. EDIT: I spoke with my Product Specialist by phone 8/8, and he said that the Supercharging information I got at the showroom has been superseded. The official word now is that Supercharging details for 60kWh cars will be announced in September, and it may or may not require addition equipment in the car. For those folks who go ahead and Finalize 60kWh now, once those details are released, we will have the option to switch to 85kWh if that sounds like the better option when all details are known, with no delay in delivery. EDIT AGAIN:Apparently the news about the Supercharger hardware being standard was correct, so now we can look forward to the September event for the details on whether there are charges or limitations associated with its use.
