    A few tidbits, but overall I find it interesting to read about a tesla from a non-American perspective: Tesla 2016 Roadster - Tesla to build another sportscar | GoAuto

    Future Models:
    “At the moment we’re concentrating on the Model S and Model X, of course, but in 12 months we will be ready to talk about the third model.

    “Maybe it will be the sportscar, or maybe we’ll slip another model in before it, so it should be 2015 or 2016.”

    “Sales have been so successful it looks like we will follow North America and sell out about six months earlier than expected,” said Mr McCormack.

    One of the Australian owners, Simon Hackett, set a world distance record of 501km for a production electric car on a single charge on October 27, 2009, during the Global Green Challenge in the outback, at an average speed of 40 km/h.

    Model X:
    Meanwhile, Tesla Australia has already taken five reservations for the Model X that was revealed to a select audience in a Los Angeles design studio in February. Tesla claims it received 503 orders that day.
