The Get Amped Model S Tour | Tesla Motors
Yes! Although, I'm sure you are as disappointed as I that the closest event to us is D.C.
Whoohoo! First event at the factory right after the Founders get their cars on June 22!
I guess they'll prioritize not just by reservation sequence but, also by proximity to the event location?!
Two shots at it for Bay Area folks:
June 23 – 24
Bay Area, CA
July 14 – 15
YES!!!!! I am actually going to be in ft. Lauderdale FL for work at the same time as the Miami event!!!!! This just made my day!!!! I may actually get to test drive!
Blog post notes that they are already delivering cars to founders (Elon got his on Saturday). Seems to me that the cars being delivered on June 22nd are going to be Sigs, not founders. That's great.
DAMN! I literally just an hour ago booked a vacation trip to NY from 7/6-16. So, I'll miss the Scottsdale, AZ session on 7/13-15 (where I live) AND the one in NY (7/20-22). Ugh. I wish they had announced this one day earlier.
The first car last Friday was almost certainly to Steve Jurvetson....
... if anyone has a guest spot available June 23-24 for the Fremont event, I'd really like to go.
I wonder what they mean by Bay Area, CA. Perhaps the Menlo Park store or maybe even the Palo Alto HQ. There is no city or postal region around here named Bay Area, CA just like there's no Silicon Valley, CA. (There is, however, a Stanford, CA. :wink
For Pete sakes man, change your ticket!
You may still have a shot at cancelling the flight tickets courtesy the new DoT regulations that went into effect in January this year:
Press Release | U.S. Department of Transportation
Policies by airline:
Airlines' courtesy fare-hold and 24-hour cancel/change policies - Airfarewatchdog
I hope you get your drive but don't forget there's 8,660 people in front of you and a bunch of them are in FL.
Yeah, it has to be Menlo, SR or PA HQ. Terrible traffic around both Menlo and SR stores. PA HQ and 280 would be more fun.
The earlier factory version would be preferred, I'd think, as GeorgeB mentioned that there's a Franz-designed test drive course that takes in some parts of the factory's closed course before getting on city streets and freeways.
Have people gotten emails about this already? I'm a reservation holder and haven't received test drive info yet.
I'll keep you in mind, Bonnie! But, I doubt anyone other than the reservation holder will be invited and/or allowed to drive. You should have left those $5K alone in a Model S reservation when you fell in love with the X in February
Early next week as per GeorgeB in his blog post.
The key word in my excitement is "may"
there is at least hope
Any word on whether guests can just watch the test drive event or can ride along?
I'm pretty excited as I had already planned on being there that weekend to go sit in a Model S for the first time! Looks like I may get a test ride out of the deal!
Personally I would rather not test drive at this point, I am already in the non-refundable realm of the Tesla order process. I will wait till my car is delivered to drive the S.
