    Since that new option was just announced, I'm pretty sure that no one on TMC has ever seen it in real life or sat in a Model S with that option installed.

    We know the center bar won't be there, but I'm curious as to whether or not the glass extends any further at the edges; sides, front, and back.

    Looks like there's a bar running across at the top of the windshield, just like the older pano (now "sunroof").

    And there we have it: the new Glass Roof option from inside looking up. Unfortunately the reflections in the photo are such that the image certainly does not convey what it looks like in real life

    This got me thinking:. The Model S glass roof was just announced a few days ago, so this car surely must be a showroom or some kind of "insider" car? A customer car with a glass roof wouldn't be ready in such a short timeframe, would it?

    "Not compatible with satellite radio".

    Does this mean the free subscription that you get to spotify doesn't work with all glass roof?

    No, that's internet radio and works fine.

    No XM/Sirius without the old Pano Roof.

    Agreed. And the white upholstery is not available on the Model S configuration page. So this is some sort of special build.

    White upholstery available on performance cars, so this is either a P100DL or a new animal.

    I'm not surprised to see glass roof in Fremont, they're supposed to be rolling off the lines to customers in "a few weeks"

    But the glass roof option was only announced and made available to the public about 4 days ago, which is not enough time to process an order and build a customer car, at least not for "normal" customers. :)

    Thank you, I had not see that photo before (I wonder where that was taken?). However, the OP was asking about the new Model S Glass Roof option. The photo you linked to is the silver Model 3 prototype. Here it is:
