    Don't worry, the article also claimed it would start at $70,000, which is $5,000 below the entry level Model S. It's also odd the article claims Tesla said this week there are about 20,000 reservations when they said that a year ago.

    Old news. Just a way for the author - who is probably paid on number of impressions or ad revenue share - to put out an article with "Tesla" in the title and thereby garner traffic and ad revenue during a relatively slow day for Tesla news. There are a lot of sites and authors that do this: rehash old material with click bait titles that make you think they are "news."

    I'm not a woman (but I am fond fond of them... one in particular) and I'm also fond of the Tesla Model X.

    Misread it as undeserved and was going to rage at sexism towards women.
