    And given Tesla's history of multi-year delays in bringing new models to market, it's not unreasonable to be skeptical of the stated 2017 launch date. I am optimistic that it will happen, but I'm not betting money on it.

    The car I am looking forward to in 2017 is a Model X CPO...but that's just me.

    Yeah, back in 2011 they said we would have the "next gen Roadster" by 2014...

    Did we get that Model S cabriolet in 2013? Nope... I am basically in "I will believe it when I see it mode."

    I gather the press got some of those ideas from the IPO filing...

    Note, it says "at least" which gives them wiggle room to delay as long as they need...

    This does not cover 2017 exclusively but up to 2019.

    Interestingly, they have the Chevy Bolt as a 2018 Model.

    Several car companies have multi year delays. Audi's e-trons for example.
