According to Elon Musk, there will be several new variants of the model S in 2013:
"There are a few other variants of the Model S that we'll come out with next year that I think are going to be pretty exciting, in addition to, of course, really getting into the Model X and starting the initial design work of the 3rd generation mass market vehicle."
It would make a lot of sense to offer a feature which would have commonality with the Model X plus being able to compete with the premium BMW, AWDI or Lexus sedans offering AWD as many drivers living with ice, snow and steep hills are unwilling to use a RWD car no matter how low the centre of gravity.
I am betting an AWD Model S is in the cards for 2013.
