    Some of us German Tesla fans just got an invite to a reception to be held at the Munich store Thursday night.

    We will report what Elon had to say.

    i am wondering if this planned appearance has something to do with the European price reduction.

    OK, let's get crazy: AWD, P110+... :tongue:

    Ok, ok, just needed to get it out of my system. Most likely just the "highway optimization".

    The price change is EU wide as Other EU lists my cars config ca 2500 eur cheaper (it was 1300 more expensive on the day I received it)

    The price reduction is really a reduction of the base price. It makes the model S more affordable.

    I checked my own build and it came to about the same price as before. The options are a little different so it is difficult to really compare. Had I ordered later, I would certainly have chosen more options (love the red brakes and the foldable mirrors that were not yet available in Oct.).

    So really, I would have spent more money.

    Now they give you more choice. A 60 without any options is still a phantastic car.

    Nah, it will be to celebrate the release of firmware 6.0, which implements the lower-than-low suspension setting for autobahn speeds... ;)

    When Elon Musk visited Oslo in March 2013, our Norwegian Tesla friends arranged a live stream of the whole evening with Elon Musk (speech + Q&A). I would appreciate it if our German Tesla friends could arrange something similar on Thursday evening.

    Or at least a good quality video recording with a good quality sound recording as well. All Tesla friends all over the world would appreciate that. Thanks

    I think that was from his last visit to Germany.

    The last event (october 21st 2013) was the opening event of the service center in munich.
    Last time there was a small speech by Elon (about half an hour) about the progress of Tesla in general.
    Afterwards there was Q&A part (about an hour) and everybody was so excited to ask a question;)
    Elon seemed to like the Q&A part as he obviously answered more questions than planned;)
    During the event Elon mentioned for example the high speed tweaks that will be done for high speed autobahn-travellling, and the plan to roll out superchargers in Germany and Europe (trip Munich to Lisboa will be possible in 2014). Please refer to thread about last event for more details.

    As the new invitation looks pretty much the same as last time (no special topic mentioned), I guess the agenda (small speech, Q&A) could be similar this time.

    This is from the email invitation:
    "Invitation to an event in the Tesla Store in Munich
    Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO TM
    invites you +1 for this exclusive event:

    He is coming to Norway as well on Saturday, so where is he on Friday? The event in Oslo was full-booked in a second. But I guess he will get the AWD question 100 times, so we will hopefully get an answer there.

    We already know that there will be more stores, service centers and Supercharger stations. But that is not the main reason that Elon Musk decided to visit Germany again. He is going to make an announcement, that's for sure. And he ultimately wants to sell more Model Ses in Germany, we know that either. Could he be announcing a lease option for the German people?
