    Looking at the Model X, I am still far more interested in the Model S. I prefer the styling of the Model S. Also, the fact that is near production is a huge factor.

    For me it's simple. Right now I need a car, not an SUV.

    Though if I needed an SUV, X is a very interesting vehicle.

    It doesn't change my mind about the S, but I'm going to put down a reservation for the X tomorrow and see if the falcon doors grown on my wife.

    Very nice. Congrats. Any sense of how many attendees were reserving?

    I reserved production # 37. Seemed like they were pretty busy at the reservation area. I'll take a wild guess and say maybe 50 to 100 reservations were taken last night.

    Nice, ground breaking and a hit but the Model S is still the heralded prize.

    I like it, but I like the sedan better. The gullwings are cool, but like the panoramic roof more (probably can't get a panoramic roof and gullwings). Also I like the screen placement on the sedan better- it looks out of place on the Model X

    A long time ago I had hard choices to make in the realm of cars: sportscar, sedan, SUV, Audi, BMW, Porsche, Lexus, Mercedes, Mazda...
    Then I decided I would only buy EVs in the future, and there was one clear winner - only one choice.
    Everything was so much easier when there was only one choice. Now there are two. Oh the humanity!

    Model S for the win. If I needed the seating and cargo space, the Model X would be a good alternative, but the sleek, powerful lines of the S speak to me in a way that the X does not.

    Will be interesting to see if Tesla can make that change in the vernacular stick.

    But it's not really a change in vernacular--two different things.

    Falcon: Bi-fold
    Gull: Mono-fold

    Gulls and Falcons both fold their wings the same way.....

    And some of the press can't make up their mind what bird it should be:

    So the "gull" ought to become the "Otto Lilienthal":

    And the falcon ought to become the bird?!?!? :eek:
