My wife and I stayed at a very nice hotel that had only valet parking available. I didn't like the idea of letting someone else drive my model S...but without another option, it happened. The guy told me not to worry -- that they park all of the high end cars up front. Later that night, my wife and I were walking past the "high end" cars and two couples were walking in the other direction and one guy was pointing them out to his friends, "Check it out! Mercedes AMG, Audi R8, and of course a Tesla! The best of the bunch." Made my day just overhearing this.
My favorite moment thus far was at the Tesla Factory about a week after delivery at the beginning of the year...I was there at lunch charging the X when a group of 20 Dutch gentlemen exited the service center/store. They were part of a electric car leasing company in Holland and had traveled to California to see the X. They had taken the tour and seen a few on the production line but Tesla did not have any completed products that they could touch and feel. When they saw my X, they were ecstatic and asked if they could take a look, operate the doors, sit in the seats etc. Being of Dutch decent, how could I resist. It was a great experience showing the car to these guys and their enthusiasm generated an even bigger crowd. There must have been about 40+ people at the car, taking pictures, admiring the interior and loving the fwd operation. Its good to be an X owner/early adopter...
Here's my first significant Tesla Moment in the Model X. We sold our Prius to CarMax today and my wife came in the Model X to pick me up. I had the Model X hat on and someone inside followed me out hoping to see the Tesla. He stopped us just outside the door and pleaded to see the car very politely. We walked over to the Model X and I opened both Falcon Wing Doors and he reacted as expected. While I was showing him the interior, several CarMax employees walked up to the car and were ohhing and ahhing. By the time we finished, there were at least a dozen employees looking around and inside the car. Lots of pictures were being taken. Several people mentioned that they had reserved a Model 3 and were glad to see a Tesla up close. I got the impression they were more excited about their reservation after seeing the Model X.
One guy said he reserved a Model 3 but didn't receive a confirmation so he reserved another one. The next day he received two confirmations and his reaction was, oh, ok... I'll take them both!
