    "I'll be on the CBS morning show at 8:40 tomorrow. I think they are going to do a teaser shot at 7:40 as well."


    I assume those times are EDT. I'm sure a youtube clip will be available shortly thereafter.

    Would that be a teaser shot of WhiteStar, aka Model S?

    I doubt it. Probably they'll have a Roadster there and talk about things we already know.

    Anything less than a WhiteStar unveiling is not going to impress us much.

    Exceptions:
    -Tranny 2.0
    -300+ mile range battery pack
    -ZAP-X production announcement :biggrin:

    Well most of us on this forum follow everything Tesla does. However, I'm sure much of the CBS morning show audience has never heard of Tesla Motors. If they have a Roadster there live, that will get a lot of attention, and talk about Whitestar and a possible $30K Bluestar will be of interest.

    Martin has been on the NBC Today Show before. The CBS Early Show is the worst rated, so I doubt there will be a major reveal (unless that's all he could book).

    So anyone get to see it? I don't actually own a TV set, so I have to wait for a web clip.

    The description, however, sounds pretty much like what we were expecting:

    I just got through watching. The car looked fabulous, all the commentary was positive. And yet, it was a short piece that barely touched on the basics, and they didn't even drive it. So. . . It was fluff. Not bad, but no big deal.

    Also, when will CBS get their high-def act together? Other morning shows are in high-def now.
