    come to me my pretty ...

    probably too early for test drives/rides but it still helps to pass the time.

    check out the events page as there are other stops in the Canada Model S Beta Prototype Tour.

    Yay!

    I finally get to see one in person!

    I agree rides are unlikely since the car will be in the center court of a mall...

    ... Not that this would stop me ;-)

    No rides, unfortunately.

    Of course they are most welcome to stop by and use my HPC. :wink:

    I wonder when we'll get Canadian pricing? I think at one point Tesla said 6 months before deliveries (which would be anytime now).

    I changed the name of the thread to "Canada" instead of "Laval" since the original post talked about several Canadian cities, and we're likely to talk about them here.

    Thanks. I thought about it after adding the other links but ...

    You get to tell us first which car we are getting being as its coming to Ottawa first. My guess is that it is the one from the Sarasota Yacht Club.

    I'm dropping in on the Tesla service center in Toronto in a few hours... I'll see if they know which one is coming.

    Word is that the car will be a newer beta, with a more polished interior. It won't have a drive train (apparently common for their static display cars). They didn't know the VIN or colour, but perhaps Hans does.

    Well being as we will only get to see one of the permutations, I hope at least that they come with the paint chip/leather samples so i can get a better idea of the options. I am tired of trying to come to a decision on interior/exterior options based on the design studio renderings.

    I tried to convince Tesla to let me see into the truck on their way from Toronto to Calgary, but no dice. I thought it was worth a shot. Maybe if lots of Manitobans bugged them they'd stop in Winnipeg :p I wish

    I might try to get off work and fly to Toronto for a day on air miles; when are you others going to be there?

    I'm planning on going to the Laval show on Saturday morning, Hopefully we;ll be able to sit in the cars if we show that we are reservation holders!

    Just heard through the grapevine that the Canadian tour will include:
    • Samples of the interior trim pieces
    • A functioning Design Studio with Canadian pricing (!)

    Sounds great, hopefully the beta is a performance version. :)

    Well, it doesn't have a real drive train... but hopefully the styling will be performance.

    That's what I meant. It'd be nice to see the perf seats, carbon fibre interior and carbon fibre exterior bits. :)
