    Yesterday I dropped by the Bellevue store and in chatting with the rep found out they are going to start having test drives from Bellevue Square. He described them as a "more traditional" test drive, lasting about 30 minutes with various routes around Bellevue. No commitment on timing, but would be great to get some more time behind the wheel!

    Do you know if it will just be for reservation holders, or will anyone be able to test drive?

    More than length of time, I'd like to see the reservation holders plus one get a test drive before the general populace. My wife was pretty pissed off that she didn't get to drive. We have had our reservation since the early days after the Model S launch, and the money is as much hers as it is mine, so denying her a test drive didn't "make her smile."

    I remember hearing that reservation holders would get first priority for these longer test drives. And then the general public would have an opportunity.

    Old news, but glad to hear it semi-confirmed via repetition...
