    I have about 13.5 hours to finalize my decision, but I'm seriously considering the swap. What are you thinking?

    Model X doesn't appeal to me half as much as the Model S. It's a handsome CUV, but it's still a CUV -- lacks the svelte, powerfully long lines of a sedan. And I have no need for the extra seating.

    Same here. We might look into it for my wife though to replace her Acura RDX. The Model X may just be too big though.

    X does look pretty cool, but I'm sticking with the S.

    Two adults and three kids (11, 13 and 15) here. Although I could get away with the Model S, the Model X fits the bill a bit better.

    And I've been *very* used to Audi Quattro for the past eight years. I like the idea of AWD more than RWD.

    My wife realy wants AWD, we have 3 kids (5yo and 3yo twins) plus frequent visits from family, so Model X fits the bill quite nicely. I do plan to keep the S for me, will discuss with my wife putting in a reservation for an X.

    Never been much of an SUV fan, the S has all I need and want. Can't say I'm not a little bit tempted though...

    BTW, started a poll on the topic: Are you making a reservation?

    Would be great to do a side-by-side comparison with Model S before making a final decision. Most likely however, I will stick with the Model S reservation.

    I toyed with the idea of going with a Model X but I can't wait another year for one. I do like the extra room yet the Model S will work for 99% of my needs and the X will work for only that time where I might need a little extra room.

    So, beyond the addition of some space and the AWD with the Model X over the S, my thinking is that I'll also get the benefit of a year of learnings from Model S (the first "from the ground up" Tesla). Argh - only 12 hours to decide.

    Model X comes out in 2014 at the earliest (end of 2013). I am going to reserve both. Drive a scaled down 160 S for 2 years than sell it and get the X and a second tax credit, I hope :)

    I look at it this way the X is just as fast as the S. Around the same price with more room (I'm 6'7") and with better traction (4WD).

    & who know's by 2014 maybe I can buy them both :biggrin:

    THE X IS F'n HOT!!

    The wife watched the live stream with me and was like, "are we reserving one?". I was like, "no, I'm still going to get the S". THEN she's like "well, what about for me?".

    SCORE!

    I swapped. A Roadster/Model X combination just makes more sense for me (3 largish dogs).

    Those who were at the event this evening could reserve. So I did! :)

    It's actually kinda small height and length wise in person. Think more Toyota venza than Q7

    after seeing that hideous wildebeest known as the Model X I reserved another Model S. I am afraid of what they will come out with next time

    90% sure that I will do the same, for one reason that there is not enough space in my garage. Meanwhile I shall enjoy the Roadster (even more!)
    PS: I liked what I managed to see in the stream... congratulation Tesla!
