I am a model s reservation holder. One thing I would like to mention is I really like the new options on Fords such as "Blind spot notification" and "Lane deviating" - not sure these are their technical names but you know what I mean. I would love to see these on the Model s. These items I believe will entice safety minded customers and feel if a Ford Taurus would have these features the model s should also. Bottom line is I am safety minded and would like these features. I currently have a BMW 545i. It is a great car (believe model s will be waaaay better - certainly cheaper to operate) but one thing has always bothered me about it. It does not show the direction you are heading in the rear-view mirror. It agrevates me that a $60,000.00 car does not have the direction in the mirror. Yes, I know I could get it changed out but thats not the point. At that price it should be included. Do not want to be driving the model s thinking Hmmm, I really would like those newer features! If Tesla added this technology to their model s, no one and I mean no one would be able to hold a candle to their model s. Without the technology, I may have a Ford Taurus owner bragging about the new technologies his car has that the Tesla model s does not. Lets not let anyone have a bell or whistle to hold over us! Just a suggestion Tesla. Not that you don't have your hands full already!!!! Not only does Tesla have to create this new car - model s - but also have to do it with new technologies coming out from other dealers at the same time. My point is the new technologies may really save lives and I feel the model s should offer the best safety. I know Tesla is skilled enough to pull this off. By the way, purchased the stock yesterday and will buy more on dips.
