    I'll hand it to Tesla, sending out the first emails at 11:59 PM Pacific Time on August 31 in order to make their end of August deadline. Talk about cutting it close but still delivering.

    So what's the pricing on the base models? I've been trying to decide if I go with the S or the X and if the pricing is pretty close, it'll be the X.

    Here is my take on the pricing. I think the Model X 75 kWh will be $79,000 based on the following options included in the Model X Signature. I think Pano roof is no longer an option. And neither is the spoiler since it is standard. Instead of "Next Generation Leather", the option might be the independently operable middle row seats. And on top of these options, sub zero for $1,000 and towing for $750 will be options as they are for the Signature. Based on the Signature X price, it doesn't look like there is any room for a "Sig Tax". I think Signature Model X buyers will pay the exact amount someone who configures an identical production Model X pays.

    Model S Model X
    Base (70 kWh for S, 75 kWh for X) $75,000 $79,000
    90 kWh $13,000 $10,000
    Performance $20,000 $20,000
    MC Paint $1,500 $1,500
    Larger Wheel Option $4,500 $4,500
    Next Generation Leather $2,500 $2,500
    Carbon Fiber Décor $1,000 $1,000
    Autopilot $2,500 $2,500
    Premium Interior $3,000 $3,000
    Smart Air Suspension $2,500 $2,500
    Upgraded Sound $2,500 $2,500
    3rd Row Seats $3,000 $3,000
    $131,000 $132,000

    There should be at least 3 levels of front seating: standard textile, non-ventilated leather, and ventilated leather. The second row option will likely be priced separately.

    Hard to imagine a price cut to the Model S won't be forthcoming... if not now, then when production ramp is complete. As much as I prefer the S styling, there is so much "added value" to the X that I can't see the average buyer accepting the S is the same price for "less".

    Bonnie was #2 in line, so even if my configuration was first, she should get her X first.

    In regard to front photos and specs, no front photos were shown in the Design Studio. The minimal specs are have been posted on the other busy thread. The 20 and 22 inch wheels are unique to Model X. No price differences exist for any of the basic paint, wheel or decor selections for Signature X. No cloth seats or Piano Black decor. Personally, I was pleased to see the options provided. The Signature Red color gets lots of complements from everyone.

    Thanks Mark, and Mathias, for extra details. Not on sig list, though looking at how I'd spec an X, it might make sense to see if I can fill a slot (assuming such a thing I'd possible (blessed by TM,etc))? ;-)

    It's good to know how to spec another model. As we talk to others we never know when questions will occur. At one of our meet-ups with OC Tesla, I stood in the parking lot answering questions for hours for a visitor who was in the process of configuring. She had every question possible and was so pleased with the electrician I recommended. Her Tesla Model S is beautifully configured and she is a very happy owner. The extra effort is worth it when the right choices are made to switch from ICE to BEV successfully and enjoyable.
