I have Signature reservation 620. As an early adopter, I am very excited about switching to an all-electric vehicle and want to be a fan of Tesla. I'm willing to devote a significant amount of capital to the purchase of this car and realistically, expect that there will be problems with the cars that will emerge and that technology advances and design refinements will make my car "old" before its time. Tesla needs us early adopters to be rolling billboards for them. They should want us part of the team. I fear through their lack of communication, they are spoiling this opportunity. I commend them for displaying betas and for facilitating this forum. I fault them for the apparent air of secrecy that has emerged. If the roll-out of the design studio is delayed, get ahead of the story and say so! At this point, most of the details of the car's design are set - we get that. Why then the dearth of information on the car? When it comes to information - especially for your most loyal supporters, less is NOT more! I urge you to not further disillusion your fan base - we've been very patient and understanding to date; but I fear our collective patience is waning.
