    Could someone please comment on how comfortable the second row seat is with the space in between. Does it feel you are sliding off into the gap when cornering? It feels like there should be an armrest on those chairs when in that configuration.

    Second row seats in a 6 are just like a 7 with the middle one removed. This picture would indicate some depth in the side support on the bottom and back.

    In most cars you would get an arm rest. Wonder why they decided to not have one on the 6 seat configuration...

    Unknown but we talked about it already ad nauseam when the 6 seat config option showed up. Likely because to create the 6 seat they just removed the middle seat without the need for redesign at a stage. Clearly their hands were full with the FW doors based on recent news.

    My WAG is that the 6-seat configuration was a last minute "fix" to address customer's concerns for lack of folding seats and lack of cargo space. They didn't necessarily design this from the beginning and it shows. However, it would be easy for Tesla to come out with a 2nd row center console, like the one seen at the reveal, so that may partially address the lack of arm rests. It's a work-in-progress, just like the Model-S was when it first came out and is still today.

    The Model X launch event in September. There was a console in at least one of the MXs there.

    What Ohmman said. The Reveal on September 29th, 2015.

    BTW, Ohmman, I'm still laughing about "Sarah Palin"...too bad I can't give you any more rep points.

    Thanks, I still think that having it removable is a good idea.
