    Huh? I don't see anything else new. . . Not since the pre-order page went up, which has been a few weeks now.

    That "Awards section" just links back to the Media Coverage page. They must certainly be proud of that LA Times article. They've kept it at the top even though there are more recent articles.

    Re: Tesla Motors Website

    They are doing at least two things with the website. . . They are introducing new blog-and-comments software, and they are also introducing a customer area for those who have pre-ordered cars. The customer area will be under beta testing for a few days before it's officially opened.

    There may be other changes, those are just the only ones I know about. We should find out very soon, the downtime is only supposed to be a few hours.

    I'm not sure I'm a fan of this new touchy-feely "touch, feel, etc" arrangement.

    If that means more blog updates, I'm all for it.
    But it also means it will contain a lot more information that would be harder to digg out.

    So it's now 4 streams of blogging instead of one.
    I'm torn that it promises more-things-Tesla (which is good). On the flip side, it promises o bring more-things-Tesla (it getting hard to keep up these days!).

    That new PR guy will make sure I don't have a life.

    Always amazes me when the site for big companies use crappy opensource frameworks. Anywho, not the visual redesign I was hoping for, but let me digest these pics and articles first

    Nice!

    I wonder why they waited until after the IPO to show all that?
    Or maybe it was pre-shown as part of the Roadshow so some knew it was coming?

    Between all these upgrades/updates and the fanfare of the IPO, I bet they get a real uptick in Roadster sales now.

    The website is still having some teething problems at the moment, by the way.

    At the moment this doesn't appear to be working. I gather the site relaunch is in transition right now. (6am PST)

    Probably a good thing that they waited until after the IPO then!

    Just for fun I decided to see what jobs they've got open and it loads a blank page with "The requested page cannot be found." :tongue:
