Here's hoping that the July 28 event will be a complete reveal

    I know Tesla is trying to drum up interest (important for the stock price and shareholder value) and keep 99% of reservation holders but I'm getting a little tired of seeing tidbits here and there.

    Is Friday's reveal going to be a complete one or is it part of a few more reveal events? I don't mind waiting until my expected June 2018 delivery but at least let's get all the specs, details, options out already, shall we?

    Unless the first three production models have specs that will be out of line :)

    I'm excited to see the new Tesla operating system design for the horizontal screen.

    That alone is worth the event.

    Can't imagine any reason it wouldn't be full review. Actual customers (and employees) will be receiving actual production cars. Cat is out of the bag as they say....

    Only thing I could possible see would be to not list all the specs for performance model since it won't be available right away. But how could Tesla expect people to configure and make decisions about placing an order without having all the info.

    Since these cars are to be delivered to customers, they should have Monroney stickers showing options prices, EPA certified range, etc.

    Yes, we will learn the cost of options that will be available to order shortly. Other options and their true costs will probably not be fully revealed.

    When the Model X was revealed and first delivered, it was a few months later when the order configuration page was available :cool:

    Traditional,y EPA testing is compete and a window sticker is required.
    Images of the window sticker would be nice if Tesla and or Elon are shy on details Friday

    But they have the attention a of lots of potential customers , it would be a mistake to disappoint on content and details.

    It should be complete reveal for the current version of the car. They never reveal every detail and it takes people like wk057 a and geohot to get in there and figure it out. I do not expect that for 4+ months.

    Party starts at 7PM, but presentation not until 9PM... so sometime just before 9PM would be my guess for the official webcast. However, there may be impromptu livestreams from some attendees starting earlier in the evening.

    I wouldn't hold your breath for details on future options. They will want to sell the current feature set.

    Since you will be watching the event after the fact, I assume they'll have it on their YouTube channel by then:

    IIRC, the March 31, 2016 reveal started within 10 minutes or so of the published start time. So, let's just hope that was the start of a new trend and that he doesn't have any SpaceX issues to deal with that day. :)

    ... and that he doesn't engage in an impromptu tweetstorm just before the event is about to start.


    ("impromptu" must be my word-of-the-day today. :) )

    The first reveal was like only 5 minutes late IIRC. They're getting better at this kind of thing.

    However, my experience is the live stream is so bogged down with traffic it's unwatchable.
