    Isn't it possible the dates given in the design studio are for new customers? Like someone designing his Model S and then chooses to reserve one? Just a thought ...

    Hopefully the November time frame for the grey interior is a conservative time frame.

    The obeche looks much nicer than the banana leaf... From the pictures it's a nice looks between macassar ebony and a more unified zebra wood.

    There is much previous discussion on this. It is an option. Pricing is To Be Determined. It is included in the larger battery selection.

    I don't know of any auto manufacturer that does serious aftermarket work, such as you describe. There are excellent aftermarket specialists, particularly for sound systems and interior finishes. The "speak now or forever hold your peace" options would appear to be:
    • Battery size. Sure, you could replace the battery with a bigger one, but it's a huge expense.
    • Active air suspension
    • Panoramic roof
    • Performance / standard powertrain
    • Tech package (in part). You can retrofit headlamps and fog lights

    Seems unlikely -- if you don't have a reservation already, then anything until April/May 2013 doesn't matter. Moreover, Tesla told us that they intend to use the online configurator as the means by which we order our vehicles.

    I loaded a Performance model with everything but the in-law seats and the high-power wall connector. Color is green with the 21-inch silver wheels. Interior is tan leather with carbon fiber accents. No carbon fiber rear spoiler.

    Price is $102,050.

    I need a Nixon mask and a shotgun so I can rob a bank. Anybody willing to be an accomplice?

    (I kid, I kid.)

    I've got a Carter mask. Make sure we can fund my Tesla too!

    We should add "Supercharge hardware" and "Twin Chargers" as well to this list; no indication from Tesla that these could be added afterwards.

    TM told me in the store that the twin chargers were definitely something I could add later. Not sure about the supercharger capability, though.

    I was hoping about that. I want to wait for my $7,500 Federal and $5000 State rebates before I chunk down on dual chargers, and a HPWC.

    Found a bug in the design studio... clicking the print icon opens up two PDF tabs in Firefox.

    I was on the fence about upgrading to leather, but there TM just talked me out of it. Nice job. :p

    Bummer about the air suspension, I wasn't going to get that. But my brother-in-law has it on his Seqoia (however you spell it) and swears by it. Also claims it lasts longer. He thought $1500 was a no-brainer. I'm not so sure...

    They are also finally quoting the price without the federal tax incentive which is better I think.

    That is better, but there is a bug here. If you open up one of your previously configured and saved cars in the new studio, it starts with the post-rebate price (and some really flawed math to follow):

    OK TM, we know you read this. I'm going to time you, ready... Go!

    I don't think that's the case. The grey interior will be the only new one for the production models and is replacing the white of the signature so they're probably not going to set up that station in the factory until after the signatures are all done.

    I suppose that it's possible that the regular suspension will require additional safety testing and that won't be done until they've built a few cars with that suspension. So, after the sigs are all out.

    A couple of months of delays for specific options aren't at all worrisome to me because they can be explained pretty easily.

    Sounds like you'd want the paint protection too!
