Thank you Brian H.

Please clarify. Who has had deliveries with cubbies? Is this an option I missed? Are all cars from a certain date forward with cubby?

Michael23 | 12 november 2012

You should get one installed don't worry talk to your specialist. Earlier cars are going to be retrofitted.

cpetrush | 12 november 2012

Mine is coming Jan./Feb. Will it be standard or still an accessory?

Michael23 | 12 november 2012

It's standard on cars now. You'll get it. I thought you already had your s

cpetrush | 12 november 2012

Only in my dreams. Just a bit obssessed in the meantime. Thanks for your info.

Is that icky shiny plastic? The piano black? I hate it.

jinglehyme | 12 november 2012

Oh, now I see, it comes in the wood/fiber variations too. I'm fine with that.

Please can we have an Update on the Factory "Opportunity Console". When will we see the final product? When will it be ready?

TikiMan | 17 november 2012

I really hope Tesla designs a console with the various matching leather / trim. Now that I actually own the car, I would not want just anything that fits in there, it really needs to look perfect. Otherwise it will look cheap, like some aftermarket Pep Boys thing.

wbrown01 | 17 november 2012

TikiMan,
You do have the shelf that under the touch screen and the center tray....correct? Is center insert carpet or matches the wood trim?

vouteb | 17 november 2012

I like the opportunity console but just wish
He'd there was something shorter between the seats but leaves the rest of the floor under the cubby free

I think that free flat floor space is one of the Tesla trademarks

Apologies for the typing errors
(But assume that you get the gist)

Michael23 | 17 november 2012

Yeah I like the version tesla proposed with open area, but pad for cel phone to sit on. Waiting for that one!

TikiMan | 17 november 2012

wbrown01,

Yes, the cubby under the touchscreen works great! It holds my iPhone5, sunglasses, and my garage remote (can't get Homelink to work currently).
It's small, but it fits right with the trim, and has a good quality rubber inside, which holds things firm. Plus, it is at a slight angel back, so everything stays firm at all times. Another thing I like about it, I notice my Blutooth music from my iPhone5 has far less dropouts when it is sitting in the cubby, verses the floor or my pocket.

My wife likes the open center for her purse, when she is riding shotgun, and I am not opposed to the idea of a bridge style center console, so you can still place large items (like a purse) under it.

Tiki;
What angle do you have to hold your head at to see the little angel?

What is that one?
Seen designs/pictures?

MB3 | 18 november 2012

The cubby photo above was NOT like the one in the DC showroom. Well, the cubby itself does, but the in the showroom had what appeared to be semi-circular cutouts in the long-base running along the floor. They appeared to be two additional beverage holders there. It didn't look like very much support for the cup if you were driving aggressive, but fine for a tour. I kind of liked it.

stevedar | 18 november 2012

The Brown car in DC had a prototype Convenience Console (cup holders) directly below the cubby but, as you say, the cubby itself was exactly the same as the one pictures here (three times :} )

Brian H, your first picture is so large that I flag it as inapproriate.

TESLA! we need preview and maybe possibility to delete our own messages.

Michael23 | 18 november 2012

Vouteb it's in the thread I posted before. Just scroll down to see pics

The cubby did come installed in my car (VIN #532), but the shiny black plastic on the floor was not part of my car. I just have the standard black carpet along the center space between the seats.

I don't know if Tesla will provide that plastic insert in the future, but they were showing some prototypes of it at the Get Amped rides.

Brian H | 18 november 2012

Seems the new interior design engineers Elon hired have been tweaking?

Yabbut! It's also so detailed you can count the bumps in the cubby! (240).

Thanks

but thats the long one,

I am hoping for a halfsize one

I emailed TM and their reply was:

The Opportunity Console is currently under review by our executive team. After review, if no changes are needed it would be going into production. I do not have a final timeline for its completion at this time. Opportunity Consoles would be available for purchase from our Service centers and would not need to be a factory installed option. In fact, our intent is that for ease of use and customizability, they would be removable and easily interchangeable.
