    Barron's summarized a research report from Trip Chowdry ( Tesla: The Tweets Have It - Stocks to Watch - Barrons.com ) and in it Trip says "There are still at least 2 new features in Model X, that none of us know about"

    Not quite sure how Trip knows that but........

    let the rampant speculation begin.

    There's a whole bunch of possibilities...too many to list. One thing I'm certain of is that I won't be disappointed. :)

    Automatically deploying drone to provide 360 view when parking. Also, could scout ahead for speed traps.

    Autopilot deploys "safe zone" flares when bad drivers are detected. Think something like this

    Probably this, or something similar, and LED lights. Plus some other minor features.

    Since they are not showing the front, I'm predicting a chrome Elon Musk hood ornament, and a dual tone Marine Air horn!

    Both standard of course
