    I find myself either annoyed and/or amused when I find "Coming Soon" on the Tesla Motors website. I don't know what "soon" means in TeslaSpeak. I think the center console has been promised for many, many months and the supercharger in Yuma was approved by the city in September, but is "coming soon." Yes, patience is a virtue and not one that I possess.

    When I'm in an amused mood, I think of Biblical prophecy and the expectation of "coming soon." Hope the center console arrives before the second coming!

    Really? I am thinking when the second coming arrives the center console will be the least of my concerns. It WOULD be nice to enjoy it a bit before He arrives though. :redface:

    In corporate terms I understand it as:

    [month] = [season]. So January really could easily mean anytime in the spring.

    [season] = "We didn't say which hemisphere..."

    [coming soon] = "We put it on the website so you know we mean it, but we actually have no idea when we'll deliver...."

    [later*] = "Priorities will change and this will likely never happen...."

    * As in: sunscreen/lighted vanity mirrors etc. will be delivered later
