    Did anyone else receive an email invitation from Tesla today ? Since I don't have a model D on order, I'm assuming this went to all model S owners who agreed to receive email notifications from Tesla.

    The eye catching part of the invite is that the test drive takes place on Tesla's private course. The test drive will last 15-20 minutes. This takes place in Toronto on Feb 13.
    I can't think of where in Toronto they would have this test drive. Never seen their private course before.

    My closest store (Vancouver) did call me last week. To inform me of Supercharger that is now open closest to me, Red Deer, AB.

    I mentioned I'd be road tripping to Vancouver for spring break, and was promptly invited to leave my car at the store and take a P58D, overnight, while I'm staying downtown.

    My brother got an invite, but not I (fwiw neither of us own yet). It's taking place at the AllStream centre by exhibition place in Toronto.

    Tesla tweeted the other day about the event... Might have to drop in and experience the P85D. :)

    The event coincides nicely with the Toronto International Auto Show. Last year they did not have a booth at the show but set up a test drive event across the street at Steam Whistle brewery. This year there will be a car at the show but it doesn't look like a Tesla organized booth. While listening to CHUM FM radio this morning, I was surprised to hear them mention the Model S is to be at the show. Marilyn Dennis said she wanted one. I doubt this was a paid spot but I wonder if Tesla is starting to do more active promotion and advertising given the anticipated ramp in production?

    I received the invitation yesterday evening. It would be nice to know a bit more about what they will cover in the "tech talks" and what cars will be there. I have another appointment at the same time and more details might help me make the choice to go.

    I think you are correct...more than likely that a Model S will be there courtesy of some other sponsor's booth...when I first saw a Roadster in 2010, it was in a booth sponsored by the Toronto Star...

    Didn't get that email, which is odd because I've usually gotten everything that people have posted. Love the name "Insanity tour".

    I didn't get the email either and I can't see the event listed in the events list? Does this mean signups for test drives are full?

    I was called by a Tesla representative after I filled out my info for test driving the Model S and I mentioned to him about this event (shared publicly on The Globe and Mail) and he did not know about it. Who do I contact now? I really want to go D:

    I read that Globe story as well and since I am going to the show on the 13th was hoping to go as well.

    Here is the invitation I received. I'm not sure if the RSVP link is for me or generic but feel free to use it.
