    Love the silver! Maybe they'll bring one out for us to play with this morning! :D (Not likely - they're probably all customer cars....

    Nice. Kanu(SP?) Wouldn't let the customer in front of me to take a picture of it since it's a customer car.

    I got permission to take the pics. But I also made sure that there wasn't anything personally identifiable in the pics so that people could say that it was their car or somebody else's. :)

    Nope - best estimate for arrival on island for my car is currently June.

    The design studio is open to all now, and the 70D was replaced with a 75D. If I configure my X 70D order exactly the same, except with a 75D, the total cash price is $1800 more. ($101,500 vs. $99,700) I don't see any other significant changes. Interesting.

    Did range/power increase a lot from the 70 to 75?

    IIRC, the 70D range on the design studio was 215. The studio now shows 237 for the 75D. 237 seems such an odd number to put. Why not just round down to 235?

    Why not just round down to 235? Well, there's so many analyst, scientists, geeks, and all round Tesla-fans that would spend more time asking why Tesla rounded down instead of being "truthful" that is was simply safer to say 237. Someone would be beating Tesla up for inaccuracy claiming that other 2 miles would mean the difference to them of getting home or stuck along the side of the road. Just guessin'

    Was playing with the X configuration on-line and noticed June delivery estimate for 90D and July for 75D! Sooo...spleen should be getting his real soon! :)

    I've been told that it's expected soon on island. Again, I'm filtering that through the Tesla Time filter. :)

    Me too! I came to work (later than usual) today, and found this in the parking lot at work:

    Of course I had to stop and stare and be a few more minutes late to work. Too bad the MB got in the way of what would have been a perfect picture.

    I took a look at the VIN. It was <200 (not sure if it's cool if I post it or not, so abstaining for now.)

    Full size pictures available here.

    Based on the C&C motor vehicle search, it was delivered 3/31, but the VIN tells a different story. Must have been sitting at the factory or in the SC for a while. :(
