    Sad to see that Tesla's not putting up a booth at arguably its "home" auto show:

    I was hoping to see the red Model S prototype in person for the first time (and get the Mrs and our 4-year old son craving for it as well) :frown:

    Been trying to sell it to the preschooler that it's like "Lightning McQueen" and that it'd be the first car that he'd get to sit in without a child seat - coincidentally - after he turns 6 in 2012!

    Don't feel bad. Tesla did not have a display nor a car on the "Green Road" display at the 40th annual Miami Beach International Auto Show. I was able to see both the Leaf and Volt at the show and dissapointed that a Roadster was not available.

    Not surprising given that Model S won't be in production for at least another 2 years.

    But, the Model S is going to be at Tesla, Menlo Park, CA for us NorCal folks to check out on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday! (Sadly, I'll be out of town :frown:)

    Got the attached invite from the Store Coordinator at Tesla Menlo Park a couple of days ago!
