Model X

Can't wait for the website to go down....

edited November -1 in Model X
Can't wait for this website to go down overnight. I know that it will mean the Model X is coming online. It may be an inconvenience for an evening, but all of us that visit here regularly will be able to slap our hands together and rub in anticipation. Teslas are still rare in my neck of the woods (Have seen one from a distance). The Model X will spike production and am looking forward to seeing more and more. Best of wishes to all reservation holders and if ever in Gulf Shores, AL -- come and see us. The most beautiful beaches in the world and plenty of chances to charge up with your SUV...

    No change in the website today, so far...:-((

    There is no requirement to take down a web site to update it--though it really does depend on how experienced their web developers and deployment/ops folks are.

    Maybe not a requirement but there sure is a precedent with Tesla shuttering the sight to make big changes.

    No change today, so far.

    Fingers crossed for Sunday night so Monday when ken and I wake up on our birthday it's there in all it's glory! ;-)

    @ian, it will be have faith. We can celebrate our birthdays along with an early one for Red Sage. I'm still hoping that Iowa92x got it right.

    I highly doubt the website is just going to go down without notice and all of the sudden the design studio pops up. More likely, Elon will tweet something about an event for founders car deliveries where the final design will be revealed. Then the first batch of signature holders will receive an email that it is time to configure their cars. Based on previous events, I would assume the tweet and follow up email invitations for the event will come about week before the event happens.

    Hey Kyle! Don't rain on our parade! :-P

    Yes, you're more than likely correct. I'm way past (like a year or so at least) being rational about how this will play out. Just want the damn thing! Ha! ;-)

    From the Model X page...

    "More details will be announced as production nears."

    Yeah, right!!!
  • edited November -1
    More like, "More details will be announced when production STARTS!"

    And the unwritten part, "Because we don't even know the details yet."

    Kyle, Kyle, Kyle...please leave logic out of this, the reveal will be on Monday, Ian and my birthday.

    I believe the X studio will go live on the 10th, since X ~ 10. But unsure month, maybe Aug or Sept?
  • edited November -1
    I can't believe how silly everyone is acting. X is obviously a variable, to signify that the release date is variable. The release date has been Dec 2013 to September 2015 and everything in between. It is based on a complex function that includes the following parameters:
    - leap year
    - El Nino
    - number of sunny days in California
    - number of successful SpaceX launches
    - phase of the moon
    - the number patentable ideas from George Hawley
    - the number of times Elon Musk gets re-tweeted
    - Nikola Tesla's Age (if he were still alive, currently 159)
    - the number of years left before machines revolt against humanity
    - the last 10 digits of pi

    Only when the above 10 parameters are just right, will the X be revealed.

    I agree, this is utter silliness. How childish. This forum has got me so wound up in anticipation on the Model X release. I have decided to suspend all other activities for the next 60 days so that I can remain online until the Design Studio opens.

    Holy crap Iowa -

    X = 10
    Today is July 10
    Nikola Tesla's birthday
    Mercury can be seen "falling" in the morning sky all this weekend and next week - a reference to climate change?
    Lady Godiva rides naked on horseback through Coventry this day in 1040, clearly an inspiration for the Model X to begin with.

    It all makes sense - the reveal will be this weekend!

    Time to don my tin foil hat and start incessantly refreshing the Model X subsite :-D

    Is production near yet?

    We need to hear from some of the attendees at the Tesla Motor Club Conference, they were doing factory tours today and tomorrow. What did they see? However, as stated, Monday the 13th is the day!!
  • edited November -1
    Well. Over at TMC.com wart reports that they are trying to schedule a factory tour and have been told that there will be no tours the week of August 10.

    This is the first full week after the most likely date they will be releasing the Q2 financials. Sorry ken. Elon doesn't love us. :-(
  • edited November -1
    @ian, this is confusing because the attendees at the TMC Conference were allowed to signup for a factory tour as part of the conference. Maybe because of the conference they were not allowing other tours.

    @OP
    Umm, I think the site will go down AFTER Model X order page goes live due to people like ourselves flooding it. I hope Tesla allows for all the increased bandwidth.
  • edited November -1
    Yeah, should have made the trip down tor TMC Connect. Would have been fun and interesting.
  • edited November -1
    Expect the site to go down any minute now!

    Happy Birthday ken!

    Nothing new yet. Day is still young though! ;-)
  • edited November -1
    Thanks, yup, day still young. Happy Birthday to you ian, and while I'm thinking of it, to Red Sage for tomorrow. Can't believe that Elon will let us down.
