    Well, you can read it that way, but the question was when will they allow people to configure online, and the answer was in probably 3 months.

    White one looks decent with the big wheels :)

    Doesn't look like autopilot is on - hugging the line on the right side too much.

    This quote is often repeated, but usually nobody notices that July is only two months after May! So it is difficult to know if he actually meant two months in July or three months in August! I am guessing the latter.

    Yeah, like someone else pointed out, the question referred to "configure online". Sure, it's feasible a select few could be given exclusive access, but if that was his intention behind his answer (and I don't think it was), then he was misleading at best. More likely, he thought it would be online for the public in July but they missed the date. (I'll concede that my saying "promised" was inaccurate though.)

    Hmm... if we only knew someone with an early Signature reservation...

    Founders have already configured.

    Source: the calendar.

    That source wasn't so reliable when waiting for the Model S configurator... Or the Center Consoles... Or... Well, yeah.

    How could they without an online configurator!!! :rolleyes: ;-)

    If you're right, and I believe you are, then that kinda reinforces my point.

    I went back to listen, again, and the initial question by Ben from Robert W. Baird wasn't specifically about the online design studio, it was just about when we'd see the final version. Then Jeff Evanson jumped in with other questions from investors and customers regarding the X, the online design studio, and a reveal (or something to that effect). So I maintain that Elon wasn't answering the direct question regarding when the design studio would go live.

    I admit to parsing his exact words a bit much though. There has been some selective listening on both sides of this methinks. ;-)

    Cheers!

    Same license plate as http://i.imgur.com/e0SNFEl.jpg but this black Model X I spotted today on I237 looks completely together. Seems very close to a production model--camoed only using white wrapping plastic. Hmm, I have a feeling we're getting very close to the unveil/first deliveries...

    Great sighting, Mulder. That doesn't look black at all but rather a shade of gray and yes, looks pretty much like a finished product with just the wrapping plastic. Wish you got a pic of the front though; the top of the nose cone appears to have no wrap on it.

    You're right, it's grey, just like my Model S. I only have one picture of the front through the side mirror, not very good. I was trying to maneuver myself to get the right angle but too much traffic, and I had to turn right at the light where this car turned left.

    That must be the production nose cone. Too bad it's hard to make out much detail.

    Kinda. Trim looks a bit off though. Haha! ;-)

    Look at how that hood fits nice and tight to the lights.

    I could live with that car and that color. Close enough. Lets start pounding them out.

    They better be - according to The Calendar, this is clearly a Founders car.

    Agree we must be getting closer wink.gif . But still a little flaw in the fit and finish department: Falcon wing doors are not completely closed frown.gif .

    Looks really good indeed! Awesome color, too, btw. Can't wait to see it without the camo. :love:

    LOL. This is how you know we are all sitting on pins and needles jumping on anything with the slightest hope the X will be out any second now. "Awesome color" - wow, yeah, they really reinvented the rainbow with that greyish black. :biggrin:
