    I just went to tesla.com to order the Premium Center Console (front), and it doesn't appear to be on the site anymore. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there any reason to hope this is a prelude to Tesla offering consoles that coordinate with our interiors and not just black/piano?

    There is another thread on TMC showing that the Model S now comes with a center console standard, and it's different than the one that was being offered. Someone mentioned that it looks to be the same one as the Model X center console.

    Maybe they went through their inventory and are looking to start selling the new center console combo... though from the pictures it's one piece that attaches to the armrests, so I expect the price to double from where it is now.

    I think it's a prelude to them offer the all black version that is standard in the Model S now.

    Thanks for the replies. The one pictured in the links NJ provided is the same one that used to sell on Tesla's website for $600 and was only available in black leather with piano black trim. Hopefully it will pop back up on their website so I can order it. Thanks again to all!

    I would think it would still be available at the local service centers. If you have a S now, I would call your local service center for availability and stock levels.

    They were from the online store. From the Center console page. It was not from the configurator and it's the "old" center console.

    I took delivery of my car 2 weeks ago - no center console was included.

    I just called my local service center and the employee I spoke with was totally surprised when I mentioned the console had been removed from the "accessory" site. He brought up the page and said, yes, it was gone for him too. He did not mention anything about the console being standard on new cars.

    He said that when something like this has happened in the past, it's been because a product was being re-designed and not ready for sale yet. He took my info and told me he would look into it and call me back.....when I hear anything, I'll post an update.

    Well this is concerning. I purchased a center console for my new Model S on February 27th. The delivery stated 4 weeks so hopefully I get the old design one since that is what I ordered.

    If they offer me the new design I won't be happy.

    Edit: they emailed me back.

    Hi
    Thank you for your Tesla Gear order for the Premium Front Console. While this item can take up to four weeks to process, we are now experiencing an additional delay with the fulfillment of your order due to supply constraints. Once more inventory is received, we will ship the console to your Service Center for installation. A team member from that location will contact you to arrange the service appointment upon receipt. We apologize that we are unable to provide a timing estimate at this time although we hope to resume order fulfillment in the next couple of weeks.


    The Premium Front Console that you ordered is not the new Premium Front Console, you will be provided with the original Premium Front Console as you have ordered.


    If you do not want to wait, you may cancel your order and receive a prompt refund by replying to this email. No further reply is necessary if you wish to wait for your order to ship.


    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Maybe obvious (or I need more coffee) and I am just seeing this but anyone else notice that in the pictures above the black interior has the new CC and the tan interior has the old CC?

    The tan pics were taken from the old page where the console was purchased separately. So old design versus the new one which is displayed in the configurator.
