    Well that'll be a TGIF I'll never forget if true.

    My wife will be ecstatic if this is true. However, it seems unlikely.

    It all depends on how much Elon wants to hit the target he gave them in the last con call.

    If they don't unveil the site, it would be nice if they could at least put up a "Coming soon..." page with a picture of the X hidden in the shadows.

    Before the Volvo XC90 came out, they had a great teaser video that was only like 10 seconds and abruptly ended. People analyzed that video frame by frame. I couldn't find the short version but they eventually released a longer version: The shorter version ended about the time they showed the headlights, about five notes in.

    Remind me, how long was "this winter" when the Model S something was to be revealed?

    But it would make sense with "in July" and milking July to the last hour...

    I got excited for a moment, then read the reddit thread. The OP has only posted twice: the original "sources say config site is going live", then a "ha I got you" follow up.

    I am learning to keep my excitement in check.

    I'm not expecting anything tomorrow, but it would be funny if the person on Reddit was unintentionally correct.

    Seeing as the reddit guy admitted it was a joke, perhaps mods want to change the thread title?

    IIRC there was indeed something promised for the winter (was it the design studio?) that ended up happening more like spring.

    That's the one! ... And April is still winter in many parts of the world... Maybe Elon got the seasons confused, being from South Africa and all...

    "Elon Time".

    But yeah, thinking back, we did the factory tour in Oct 2011 (it was announced August 2011 IIRC), then the design studio was promised for winter, and I think it finally opened up sometime in the spring.

    That's not even the worst of it... the center console was, what? 1.5ish years late?

    Well Model X itself is looking at what... 2+ year delay?

    Will be 2 years if they don't get one out before Q4.

    do you think the delay is all related to the falcon doors?

    Just one of many. I believe the first real one was they wanted more time to get the Model S up to their desired level of quality and production.

    Although the reddit OP was joking, turns out there's a blue moon tonight. Once in a blue moon etc.? :)
