    Yep, just got my invite email. It is an invite to be in the lottery. The email sure reads as if there will be an actual car. The silouette loks like a small S doesn't it?

    Also, it confirms that reservations will start in store at 10am PST, so it looks like across the US they'll take them at the same time...

    Cool, so they are holding the event in the morning instead of night. Also, is this the first picture giving an outline of the Model 3?

    The reveal is supposedly in the evening - so those there when reservations open will be reserving sight unseen.

    I would not be surprised if this was NOT actual car under the cover.

    Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 3.19.29 PM.png When you hit the enter button it has details for the event in LA at 7 pm PST. There will be a random drawings for local tesla Owners to attend and fill 650 slots. The email did state that it could include guests or family so I'm not sure how many additional guest each will get. Also not date on when the drawing will take place

    Yeh I got to excited. It just says online reservation starts as soon as event starts. But didn't say it starts at 10 am PST.

    E-mail received and entered--I'm just East of LA, so it would be a 1-2 hour drive depending on exactly where the event is being held. Woo, fun!

    Not sure why there's such issue over Tesla giving preferential treatment to current owners lately. Those owners are the reason Tesla is still around to offer s cheaper vehicle.

    This is meant to be a car for everyone and who gets first ordering, people who are already lucky enough to have Tesla's. Surely it should be join the queue like everyone else.

    Are there about 100,000 Tesla worldwide, aren't there? So what's the chance for 650 available slots?

    That's 0.65%

    Good luck!
