    My guess is that they'll unveil the production beta version Model X and some other big surprise but I don't think it will have anything to do with the Model S.

    S owner and X reservation holder, no email yet. I'm hopeful!

    Maybe I'm missing something but since Tesla released all their patents for fair use, wouldn't this apply to future innovations as well like the AWD?

    I got an invite. Signature owner. Didn't deposit an X. I would put a deposit a coupe though!

    What time did your email come in? Trying to figure out if they're still rolling out or if I missed this one.

    For events like this they tend to roll them out, wait for the RSVP and then roll out some more if space is available.

    What about Tesla iD?

    Possibility 1 - Tesla's appstore, gives your Tesla displays a custom look, apps that suit you, etc.

    Possibility 2 - New name for the Model 3. Mass market car, people want to be unique. Lots of colors, wheels, options...car, wagon, SUV, roadster, etc. Give your car your own personal "iD"

    I know it's a stretch, just trying to guess something different from everyone else!

    - The Beta will be on display and you guys invited will get to see it up close...maybe even get to drive one!

    Very interesting!!!
    Why would they brand them? Don't need them for testing.

    *psst... do you see a tailpipe? It's probably the long-awaited Model S Diesel-Electric edition.* :p

    Well that pretty much ruins the surprise. It is dual or diesel!

    Very interesting. Too bad there's no side shot or interior shot. Is that Hawthorne airport?

    Just another point of reference. I received an invitation: I have a production S and am a sigX holder.

    Does anyone think the headrests of the front seats in that picture look different? Taller and skinnier maybe?

    Duel motors would be a bad idea.
