    From the Tesla e-mail: "Additionally, we might also have an eXtra special guest to share with you!"

    I can only think of one person :wink:

    Just a coincidence, I'm afraid. I'm at Eurovision up the hill. I walked past Palexpo on the way here. Not as Xciting.

    I'm surprised you could find your way! I was returning a French rented car to Geneva airport last year, and had to drive from within CH to FR to get a discount rate at Avis. At the airport next door. Between the roundabouts and driving U turns under the runway to cross the "border", and then literally crossing the border 5 or 6 times in the air terminal to get back to CH, it was incredibly badly signposted. But funny. First time I had taken train from CH to Paris.
    But so sorry it was just a coincidence. (Sarcasm.) :) Enjoy your day there; 0F (whatever that is in C!) here in Illinois.

    Been here too many times. I'm actually writing this from the very room I was in during the Geneva Invasion last year.

    And look what Google found...

    eXcellent! Anyone going from Munich and want to share a ride? I'm probably driving down there on the 12th.

    I'm sure it's the same prototype we saw before (hopefully with a redressed interior), and that was already an AWD version.

    So it means that Tesla has already developed the AWD system. Nice!
    I think that next step is to implement the AWD system also on Model S.

    Yes, and preferably before EU P-reservations have to finalize ;)
