    Live Countdown Timer to Model 3
    (link opens a new tab)

    Just a timely reminder to how much time we have left until electric cars take over the world!
    (that actually might not be for a while, but this is a fantastic start)​

    I made myself a Tesla watch face for my moto 360 that features a countdown in days until December 2017. 590 days to go!

    I have gotten to the point where every time I see a tesla, I yell tesla at the top of my lungs, and point at it wildly... my family does not approve.

    Ha, I also point them out or if no one is with me I tell the Mrs. that I had a sighting when I get home. You don't want to know what she said last time I told her of a sighting the other day.

    I guess my wife is an enabler by helping feed my obsession. She calls out "Tesla!" every time one passes by, even though we see them here almost on a daily basis. While we were on vacation in Edinburgh, she spotted and pointed out the Tesla showroom to me! :)

    Despite the fact that the timer is counting UP, when should it be counting down to? We don't know the date for anything yet: Reveal Pt. 2, production start, delivery start, etc.

    This is very strange. I've never seen a count-up timer before (especially one labeled a countdown time).

    It's counting up because the event it was counting down to happened already...on March 31. So I guess it is bugged and now counting time since the reveal.

    So perhaps it is better that it is a count up timer since we don't have end time as of yet.

    True, but a timer by definition usually has an end time.
    Then again.....maybe not. Maybe it can be considered one of those timers that they use at a race track.

    Of course with that in mind ... as we time Tesla, it can be considered a snail timer. LOL

    It’s now telling us how long we’ve been in agony.
