Alpha Version

Alpha Version

Elon stated in the Q2 results talk that the Alpha version MX would be produced within a couple weeks with Beta versions not far behind. Any info on the Alpha version? Will we get more details about the final MX when the Alpha is produced or do we have to wait for the Beta version. It seems like at some point they have to start releasing some details about the car. MX Sig #292!

This is of course just my opinion, but I believe the Alpha version is simply to test the line and systems. We will not see anything in the media about it. The Beta however will be produced for road testing, and I would be surprised if we do not start seeing those within the next two months. I keep checking the news, but I am sure Tesla will announce it first. I am really exited too!

Thanks... but the vid is from 2013. Nice to see though.

Wouldn't it be nice of Tesla to spend a tiny fraction of the $100+ million in reservation fees to pay someone to post a weekly status update for the Model X? That would save at least 20,000 where is it posts per week or so.

The first betas are sneaking around the test circuits under cover of darkness, painted matte black.

Brian - I wonder if they'll offer that as an option - stealth technology, to not show up on police radar :-)
