Would you like to be a rear facing seat passenger in sunny weather?

    Oh, wow. I'm ecstatic to hear they're using laminated glass back there. Where was this orginally posted? At my test drive event I asked several reps at the store before hand if they knew and they all said they thought it was just tempered safety glass.

    I'm in Seattle so heat and sun are rare concerns. :)

    To answer the OP's question: Heck, yeah! I'm all about those backwards facing seats...waving to the people behind you, maybe making a few faces...those were the good ole days.

    The quote I provided was part of response to my e-mail questions to Walter.

    Idea: install two pairs of bicycle pedals for the kids in the rear-facing seats. See how many people think the Model S is pedal-powered!
