    So the Model S is being listed as a 2011 model... but it probably won't debut til mid-late 2011 so it might as well be a 2012

    "Created in cooperation with Tesla Motors"

    Given that the Model S still has a way to go, I take it this three-part series is more a forward looking promotional video rather than an independent review.

    By the way, in case anyone forgot, OnCars did one of the better Roadster review videos a while back:

    sport model under 5 seconds.. amazing. Though I'm on the list, if the signature series offers nothing spectacular I may wait for the sport. better performance and the bugs/kinks may be out of it by then.

    They also mentioned that they can update the UI on the car so "you never feel like you have last year's model", but that doesn't help much if they do a dash refresh :(

    A nice video, but nothing very new there. Anyone know when the next 2 parts will arrive ? Eager for more high-quality pictures :)

    Ok, so definitely a commercial and not a review. But at least their up front about it. I like the professional camera work. I wonder if Tesla sponsors OnCars. Emile Bouret and Franz were classmates at design school.

    Looks like the bits with Elon were shot at the NYC Model S party. In the teaser vid, Franz says, "The Model S is an all electric vehicle. The other competitive cars, those are hybrids." I assume he's referring to the Fisker Karma and the Chevy Volt. I guess he had't yet considered the similarly priced Coda!

    I think in that case, he would've chuckled to himself and said "or are overpriced lunchboxes"

    Say what?! Check out Elon's quote about deploying "intercity" 45 minute recharge stations to trial locations by the end of the year. There's at least a couple of threads I can think of that should feed on this official rumor.

    Pretty underwhelming overall, but I guess it's nice press and good for those not familiar with the car.

    All 3 parts, embedded here, in one post.

    Look at how far we've come from 2009. (For the new kids on the tesla block, a little history...)
