    I couldn't find an existing thread, so thought I would start one to facilitate the discussion w/o going back and forth between here and reddit

    overview for ElonsVelvetJacket

    Latest entry: bye bye grey seats...

    Ah, the reddit page. When I saw the thread title, I thought you were posting a link to a place where one can actually buy a velvet jacket like Elon has. :)

    And...the grey seat option is no longer available online. That was quick.

    I don't use reddit so seeking some clarification: is that reddit "thread" (? Don't know the correct term) something that Tesla Motors created and posts to, so that everything I see there is an "official" communication from Tesla?

    I realize I didn't provide much context, sorry:

    - There is "someone" on Reddit who started a thread which so far has been 100% accurate re. upcoming Tesla news. This should not be considered official Tesla communication, but if I had to guess, this is coming from an insider. This may be organized "leakage" from Tesla, but this is pure speculation on my part.
    - in addition, the thread I started here is not an "official" thread from Tesla in any way shape or form, this is why I used quotes, so take whatever will be discussed here with a grain of salt.

    I hope this helps

    This is an excellent idea. That poster has a 100% track record and I'm not a Reddit user so I'd love to see instant updates over here at TMC.

    Thanks, got it. That "someone" on reddit does seem to know what they are posting about. :)

    Did Elon get rid of the velvet jacket? It has been almost 6 months since ElonsVelvetJacket has been around.

    Amber made him get rid of it since it was a gift from his ex-wife and she didn't want it around as a reminder. :)

    I'm thinking he had to retire it temporarily while he is running around all sweaty to get the 3 out the door on time.

    A higher up employee posted on Reddit asking the person to stop. They stopped. It was not Elon.
