    Not much detail there, I guess they didn't get a full tour of the vehicle's features

    Is that true? The suspension adjusts to act as an inertial dampener?

    The article mentions 'NUMMI' a couple of places.
    I think Tesla would prefer if people refer to it as 'The Tesla Factory' now. NUMMI as an entity is done. It is a historical reference now.

    I agree, not much detail, and all the pictures they have aren't actually of the betas?

    Pretty superfiscial article IMO. Seems if they're gonna fly you out, feed and house you to report on the car you owe them at least a bit more detail. I guess they're just breaking it up into several more digestible length stories.
