Am I going to miss a center console?

My Model S should arrive in a few more weeks, and I've had plenty of time to freak out about "wow, I'm spending a bunch of money on a car!"

Today's freak-out: Why doesn't the center console open? I never did figure out why the armrests sliding to reveal cupholders precludes a center console, nor what they did with that space underneath.

Anyway, is there enough space for stuff that's easily accessible to the driver?

There's plenty of room in the floor-level center console — and it's more easily reached too.

The arm rest cup holders are useless. They're narrow, shallow, and difficult to reach. There's a substantial cut-out on the backside of the console for rear passenger foot space, so a bunch of the interior volume on the pedestal goes towards the rear seat air ducts.
