    It's odd how only the LA and Fashion Island stores give details about the car, and they describe EXACTLY the same car...The rest do not tell you more about what is on display...

    Am still waiting for the Beta to be in NY. Saw the red Alpha prototype in Greenwich, CT last summer

    Many of these betas are missing motor, pem and batteries. They have standard car batteries hidden in them to run the accessories such as ac,radio,roof,seat, and lights. This allows for cheaper store cars that won't be stolen or crashed in misguided demo drives from your rep who wants to please you. They also help the team learn how to build the car better each time. I was very pleased to see how many they have.

    I believe that there will be at least one at each store in the very near future. These cars were meant to be stationary display units only so none have drive trains.

    The woman at the DC store told me, when I went to see the beta a couple weeks ago, that they'd have their own permanent car in April. The way she said it, I got the impression it would be a real, drivable car; but reading this and a similar comment elsewhere makes me think it will just be another stationary demo unit. Darn! I was hoping to get a drive (even just as a passenger) soon, since I finally ponied up for a reservation. ;-) I wonder when that'll start happening -- a permanent, drivable Model S in all stores, with drives (at least for reservation holders, though preferably for all comers)?

    The guess I heard was about 2 to 3 months out and we would have drivable Model S' at some of the stores if not all of them.

    Maybe they'll get a pack put into it after deliveries (and NHTSA certification)

    I visited the white one in the LA store and it was as described (pearl white, black interior). I didn't check if it actually had a motor or anything.

    I may swing by Newport today and will report on what I find there. I'll try to find out if it's actually drivable or not.

    Unlikely. I would guess that there's no airbags either (wouldn't be road legal).

    Went to the South Florida store today, and the same white one that was there a few weeks ago is back. It seems to be stationary, as described above. The employee there told me that they are expecting a newer model towards the end of the month; a black one. She also said that there should always be at least one there from now on. Also, they are moving the store to Miami, but leaving the service center where they are.

    Also, she claimed that three local people have done their configuration as part of the initial ones.

    As I mentioned in another thread, Santana Row is supposed to get a white Signature Sport this weekend.

    If you can go, pictures would be great. Thanks. I am interested in the black interior with red piping if it happens to have that.

    Why Signature if they are sold out? I want to see the grey interior.

    Signature Sport and non-Signature Sport interiors are identical from what I've been told. You just can't get the white interior as a non-Signature.


    Me too! But i'd still be interested to see any sport interrior. Wish that would come to So Cal.

    Black and tan are available on all models. White interior is exclusive to sig and grey is exclusive to non-sig. Check out the design studio as well as the options/pricing page. Not sure if the person that told you otherwise has some other info?

    I see your point. My bad re gray. My point was at least you can see what the Sport interior is like, even if not the exact color you want.

    Also bear in mind that while Signatures are sold out, most of us haven't picked our cars yet so it would be nice to see a Sport interior to compare against the non-Sports we've been seeing.

    No such thing as "Sport" for the S. I think you mean "Performance". ;)
