    Has there been any updates on when we can expect official crash test results? I've read about Tesla's internal unofficial 5 star ratings. And here's from an earlier Tesla blog. But is this still the latest update?:

    "The National Highway Transportation Safety Board (NHTSA) has reserved their cars for crash testing and will receive delivery in the order in which we receive their final order. It is likely they will receive their cars in spring/summer of 2013 and will conduct their tests sometime thereafter. We have designed and engineered Model S to achieve a five-star crash rating and look forward to their tests being completed."

    Here's hoping the NHTSB ordered 85kwh with air suspension to get earlier delivery ;-)

    They bought it to pulverize it, my guess it they went cheap, budget cuts and all?
