    I plan on being there. Based on the review I hope they improve the Tesla Motor employee ratio. If Telsa is reading this thread I would like their comment on what will be presented.

    Most crowded showing that I've seen do far yesterday. Price increases haven't scared away prospects.

    Yeah majority of the crowd were non-owners. I think most of the owners were in the parking lot talking to each other about their cars. I probably won't go next time. Coffee line was over 30mins long and all the donuts were gone pretty fast. :(

    I think the event was not what they implied. It was just a way to increase floor traffic to sell cars at the dealership. No presentations. No new information.

    They did have two cars with the bumper sensors installed.

    Seriously. Only owner geeks like us get super excited to see bumper sensors haha. Now if this was a owners only thing with open bar at night, a DJ and dance floor in the service center that would be awesome!

    It was definitely targeted at potential customers. The owners were there to show off cars and talk to the prospects. I know that I hung out in the parking lot most of the time talking to other owners and a couple of people interested in the car. I'd say maybe 25% of the people there were owners.... maybe.

    Definitely bring your own coffee next time, thankfully both I and the person I spent most of the time talking with did.
