I switched to my wife's iPhone 4 after the Sony Bloggie battery died. My camera work is awful, but at least you can hear what George says better on the iPhone: http://youtu.be/LN52Lfkxc7M?hd=1 Not much here... In the beginning, he's talking to another Tesla employee about which future Model S' to put where in the garage: "white, then the performance, then black interior with red piping". The only questions here are @ 2:05 about increasing max. speed on range estimator to 75 mph; @ 3:10 about high contrast tan - black interior; "I'm about making people smile. The designers and the engineers make the car handle well enough that when I get in it it makes me smile." @ 4:00 about the chrome stripe under the doors. @ 4:40 G.B. mentions the console again. After 6 mins. Franz H. called him on his cell and he had to go to take the call. - My interview with Ted Merendino, the Product Manager for both Model S and Model X: [16:11 running time] http://youtu.be/UngxwjWtqNE?hd=1 - Here's brief video of the Signature Red, #44: http://youtu.be/1Ot_03DwGRA?hd=1 - The Pearl White, #43: http://youtu.be/HXPSmkDlXhU?hd=1 - Metallic Silver: http://youtu.be/Tz2lhdCfRrs?hd=1 - Solid Black: http://youtu.be/OL_PnsQmsmQ?hd=1 - Sig Red Beta Door Handle in operation, Final steering wheel, New touchscreen software in operation (much faster): http://youtu.be/9PSygTIPqho?hd=1 Courtesy of ddenboer: Pics from today (and early morning yesterday) are here: Tesla Day March 2012 Photo quality is not the best -- I planned to bring my DSLR, but brought two kids instead.
