Model S Ride-Along at Carmel Concours
Albern, That's a great video. We also stopped by and did this.
Model S Ride-Along
Model S Liftgate
So to summarize:
- this is the one and only moving prototype (still), even windows and fans don't work
- the exterieur is pretty much finished and looks like the prototype
- the interieur will change a lot (bummer)
- it will have 4G
- what was this constant whining, annoying noise?
Thanks for sharing!
Wow, great videos Bob thanks for sharing.
I never realized how noisy the S was but I guess it should be expected in a pre pre-production model. Did they mention what the noise was?
Keep in mind that the running Model S is just a show car and not the final product. I watched the video and figured that the noise could have been the fans for the battery and the assisted streering system. The other sounds could have been the mount point for the interior parts but I think the final product will be a solid offering.
Thanks for posting.
I noticed the driver's legs appear to be somewhat cramped from both a length and width perspective.
Looking forward to seeing the child rear facing seats.
I've heard that more recent prototypes (likely with "closer to final" hardware) will be roaming around this Fall...
Understand that the "prototype" is just that. Under the skin is the power train and battery pack of a Roadster. We were going no faster than 25 or so miles per hour and the whine (which I did not notice until you brought it to my attention) was from battery cooling and the power steering (since the fans weren't working). The whine was not really noticeable while we were on the test drive.
Yes, foot space was at a premium on the drivers side but, as Dan mentioned, the interior is going to change.
