    Beijing is 12 hours in front of New York, so it's wrapping up 7.30 AM Tuesday morning, right?

    What color is that car? It is like a rosy white. I guess it is just a weird picture of a pearl white?

    Curious as to who the "distinguished customers" are.
    Government officials, industry magnates, celebrities, or regular folk?

    Distinguished = Sig holders

    This ceremony is considered to be a very important marketing campaign for Tesla, the delivery is more or less symbolic, I think Elon will only hand over the keys to a very few customers who are celebrities here in China.

    Marketing speak aimed at the Chinese culture who value the concept of honor more than we do in America/Europe. They are honoring the Sigs as distinguished customers.

    So did anyone go to the event today in China? Anyone grab a video of Elon's talk? Would love to hear what he had to say.

    Elon in a suit! And tie! That's a new one. He must have really have had to be convinced to do that!

    Elon was also in suit and tie for yesterday's tech conference.

    I think a significant segment of the buying public would take it as an affront to China if he showed up wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

    When inside the Beltway and visiting more formal cultures Elon should do as a visitor to Rome.
