    Hi all,

    Got this email just now, wanted to know what everyone thought that last part meant... Pretty cryptic stuff if you ask me.


    "This new event series was designed exclusively for owners. Over a light breakfast, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with Tesla product experts, learn more about latest product features and speak with fellow owner enthusiasts. We look forward to seeing you at the event as we take a closer look at Summon."

    I also just got this email. There are different locations on different dates, so if you don't see your nearest service center on a date, check a different date. Some locations are having the event on multiple dates. I recommend signing up soon if you plan on going, as Tesla events fill up quickly and you won't be able to RSVP a spot.

    Yes. Although it wasn't working for me initially. I had to use my Wifes phone.

    I had to use a different browser, as Chrome on mobile wasn't working. Try another browser.

    I think it means that they think that it's the latest shiny that'll get people to the store where they hope they'll update their S or get an X instead of waiting for the 3 or Y.

    Not cryptic to me. Believe it just means they will explain how Summon self parking and retrieval works. Maybe indicate their future plans where you can summon your Tesla from further and further away.

    I read where Elon is hopeful to allow your Tesla to drive you to the airport or other location, drop you off, return to your garage, plug itself in and return to pick you up when you schedule it. Tesla seems to be thinking long term for autopilot.

    I believe that summons is a free over the air update that many earlier buyers will be getting, but might not be familiar with it, or how it can best be used. No need to buy another car to get it, just another way that these cars have the potential to get better and better with no cost of effort.

    while I have little need to be schooled on how summons work, a free party is hard to pass up

    Not so mysterious - they just misspelled "someone".

    But I have to wonder: Who?

    The topic of the social breakfast will be the Summon feature on the car. What's cryptic about it?
