    Odd move to talk with a site that's traditionally critical of you and your products, at a time when your products are in a rough patch.

    Yes. Odd he'd give them the time of day. Notice how the intro on that page is all positive and doesn't mention their role in the whole bricking story?

    Oops, missed that this had been posted already.
    He's answering questions now, but so far hasn't answered my "what's the cause of S delays and when they'll start." Maybe if more people ask??

    quit answering after 30 minutes and didn't answer my question...damn.

    Must have been noon Eastern. Missed getting my question in, darn.

    "I think the Model "E" concept is perhaps even more important for the public (and Tesla) than the Model X. Is there any chance to fast track this automobile? The market will be clamoring for this affordability after the S begins to make waves in mass. This would be our second EV after the S. Our commuter. Your thoughts?"

    Is there a video or text of the Q&A somewhere?

    Edit: Good grief I'm blind. They're inline comments on the site.

    Pretty lame and fluffy Q&A IMO. The only news was bad: the Supercharger reveal is now "in a few months" instead of September. :(

    EDIT: strange i read it before the quote but the reply with quote pulled it with your own answer embedded ... at least you got your answer.

    It's Jalopnik, which set my expectations pretty much as low as they can go.

    I really try not to visit the Jalopnik site, but since Elon was there I figure its ok. Matt Hardigree actually had a funny comment which also poked fun at his own douchiness. Elon was talking about how Tesla would absolutely make the first rover for people to drive around in on Mars, and Matt chimed in with this -
