    It looks like this is very close to what the beta´s may look like. There are a few style elements I haven´t seen before. The tail lights seem to be something we might see in the actual product.

    I reaaaaaally hope they'll change the badge just behind the front wheels. The first version with orange led is much better looking.

    Anyway, nice to see those little movies pop from time to time :)

    That is delicious. I loved the bit where the Model S takes off from the Roadster.

    Look how smooth the Model S rides compared to the Roadster (0:15-0:20 ). Yummy!

    Yeah, it's clearly got some pep! Usually it's the Roadster doing that...

    Coool! I realize now that we're going to have to choose a Model S color that will look good alongside my Roadster...

    Roadster driver just barely went off the edge of the road coming around the corner at 0:14, heh.
    I would do the same though right there -- rather have dirt/gravel on the left side of the car than black paint on the right...

    Yeah, higher production values on that video than we're used to from Tesla. There was a crane shot, some intentional lens flare (likely simulated). Anyone know the location? Looked like the foothills in the East Bay.

    I get an error message that Windows media player does not support this file type. Any suggestions?

    Use VLC player. It's free, light, and plays most everything.
    Here's a trusted source for it: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
