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

    Elon is one clever little marketing genius.

    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.
