    I realize any answer to this question is likely pure speculation, but what else am I going to do for the next year while I wait my turn in line? :wink:

    My current car is a 2011 Ford Edge with MyFord Touch. Although it's not perfect, it does do a very nice job with voice recognition for selecting music. You can select individual songs as well as albums, artists, genre, etc. You can even select Sirius / XM stations by name.

    So my question is - does anyone know anything more about what voice capabilities (especially relating to the audio system, but overall functionality would be good to know as well) will exist in the Model S? The center console in the S blows away the Edge, but I would hate to lose the music voice recognition. I use it all the time and it's a very nice safety feature!

    Thanks goyogi! I had actually seen that video and forgotten (but I've watched so many videos over the last week to satisfy my appetite, that they are all starting to blur :biggrin: ).

    Around 1:21 in that 3rd video the left turn signal (or maybe the hazard lights) seemed to flip on. I didn't notice that in previous viewings.
