    There's news in this statement attributed to Khobi Brooklyn of Tesla:
    • What does "coming" mean? (Sorry, no reference to Bill Clinton intended) Commercial production or reveal?
    • What's the other "one of two new vehicles in the works"? S convertible?

    It's an odd wording. I wonder if Jim is just being clever or is he trying to imply more than he knows?

    Aren't the Prius called Gen I, II, and III?

    I'm guessing reveal when you consider the Model X starts DELIVERIES in 18 months(ish). Also guessing you may be right on the convertible.

    Yes, for the hatchback version.
    But they have a new "Prius C" (city/compact) coming soon:

    I hope Franz does this better.

    Maybe the official name for the Bluestar will be the Model C ?

    I'm sorry if I am asking a silly question but can someone explain to me what Jim Motavalli means by this. In particular the reference to Road & Track.
    I am confused.

    Sounds like he's talking about the difference between paid commercials and the free advertising you get by making news.
