    I assume "the domain" is the tesla store (I'm not from Austin). I've read in some of the model x forums of people getting to test out a model x for a day. Doubt it would be something only a few places do. Try a search in the forums. I haven't done it myself or inquired, but I've seen people having posted about it.

    Thanks for this, I am looking to rent as well as arriving in Austin next month for a few days, Turo.com seems a good bet

    And as a reminder, in Texas, Tesla cannot have a dealership... it's a showroom. ;-)

    You usually have to make appointments to do a test drive ahead of time as on the spot test drives sounds like a dealership thing. Texas Laws can be silly.

    The guy from Ride the Lightning podcast was talking about renting a Model S/X recently. I think it was last week he gave the names of a couple of places renting them as well.
