    Went to visit the Tesla store at Westfield today in LA.

    Lady serving, who was lovely, mentioned Q3 2014 for Model X.

    There wasn't one in the showroom.

    I was told Model X production would start at very end of 2014. This was today from a sales advisor in HQ.

    Model X is a car with very high technical contents. In particular ESC has to be integrated with AWD. It's not simple. Then there are some devices which will be developed in particular for Model X: remote control for anti-ice on falcon wing doors, sensors to avoid the falcon wing doors crash against obstacle while opening. And there are some options which are being developed both for Model S and Model X (ACC, blind spot, etc). So I wouldn't be surprised if Model X production started end 2014. Good things need time to come out.

    Granted but the web still says early 2014 for 'deliveries'. Again just observing but these things will kill momentum stone dead. Yes within itself Tesla (I am a fan BTW) is monumental success, to itself.
    I saw zero Tesla cars in LA recently, and early adoption is a huge factor I feel.

    Of course we would like to have the Model X ready as soon as possible, and an early start of Model X production would be very welcome. I think we should let Tesla work. They are doing a great work with Model S production overtaking the foreseen numbers of sale. In my opinion the same thing will happen for Model X.
    But as I mentioned above we must remember that Model X has a higher technical content with respect to Model S because of AWD and falcon wing doors. So be patient :)

    Lets see. Its just another car, albeit a tremendous shot in the arm one. Like a house everyone will be buying them for the next few lifetimes. Other electric cars will come and go, bigger manufacturers will build their own, we will watch and decide. It is our decision to some degree where we spend our money if we earn enough of it.
    Tesla has an upper hand, for now.

    Agree. Elon has also said several times deliveries will start late 2014. I would not expect anything earlier than late Q4.
