Finally get to see MY car!

Curious. How can they achieve five-star crash test ratings without headrests?
Maybe they will have them but a different design from what we see in the design studio

Volker.Berlin | March 26, 2012

Chris DC, my thoughts exactly.

Chris DC | March 26, 2012

BTW Volker, going to be in Berlin in July. Vielleicht kann man sich auf ein Bier treffen

Volker.Berlin | March 26, 2012

Sounds good! I may be in holidays in July, but we'll see. Contact me by private message over at TMC (same nick name as here) to exchange email and phone.

No Headrests in the back seats is a bad idea. I sat in the backseats of the cars at Santana Row last week, with and without headrests. Without headrests, due to the downward slope of the roof towards the rear, my head was making contact with the roof when fully reclined in the seat. I am 5'11". With the headrest my skull was positioned slightly forward and no contact with the roof was made.

Same experience without headrests when I was sitting the back seat.

There should be headrests.

re: headrests
I can only assume that their decision will be for a car that is just as safe as one with rear headrests. Somehow.

re: Studio
I tried to save my "design" in the design studio. The page seemed to save my selection, but I couldn't yet re-load that saved file. Is it just me?

Also, George said it would be possible to order the Performance version without the spoiler. It's not a big deal, but that option is not (yet?) in the design studio. More important for me would be to be able to see the external color and the internal selection at the same time, and a bit closer than the overhead cutaway view. Having the cowling of the external mirror as shown from the angled view (6th of the 8 views) painted as per user selection would probably suffice for me. Others may want to see the headlining at the same time as well so all colors are visible.

I was surprised that the Design Studio doesn't include options/packages, nor does it tally up the price of the vehicle as "configurators" do. I suppose we should truly think of this is a "Design Studio" rather than a configurator. I'd rather be able to take this all the way to a bottom-line cost, however, regardless of how scary that number might be.

Perhaps the rear seat headrests inhibit seeing anything out of the rear view mirror, and they were deleted for that reason?

I've rented some sedans where that was also the case. It renders the rear view mirror useless. I wound up removing the headrests on the rear seats just so I could see behind me.

AndyM | March 28, 2012

Robert.Boston, I was pretty disappointed, as well. A lot of wait time, then a lot of fanfare from George, followed by... a whimper of a surprise: you can pick seat color and trim finish options.
I'm still waiting for my cookie. :)

"George said it would be possible to order the Performance version without the spoiler. It's not a big deal, but that option is not (yet?) in the design studio"

You make that decision when you configure your car 3 months before it is delivered. It would be nice to have it shown in the Design Studio but the decision to allow it to be left off was made a week or so before the Design Studio was made available.

Brian H | March 29, 2012

Odd, every version I look at, Production, Sig, Performance or not, has the spoiler.

Brian H | March 29, 2012

I wonder if the rear headrests are there but removable. Use only when heads are there to rest-upon them!

Re Design Studio: Has anyone been able to reload a saved car or see what the interior roof looks like with a non-panoramic roof in the side picture of the interior? I'm wondering if these are issues with my browser or if these are persistent bugs in the Design Studio. Thanks.

The only way I have been able to open a saved car is to access it through my "My Tesla" page. I believe that the only view from the side is with the pano roof.

pilotSteve | April 24, 2012

The car in "My Garage" is always black. Is there a disconnect between the car you 'design' (and have saved) and the one that I've got a reservation number for? Do I have to wait for Tesla to call so I can 'design' the car I want them to build?

Teoatawki | April 25, 2012

Mine is sig red just like the one I designed and saved.

Web design studio is to view for the best results.
