Countdown to Design Studio Opening!

Countdown to Design Studio Opening!

With 20 days now left in "This Winter", and TM's tab button statement of opening the remaining stations of the Design Studio "This Winter", I predict there are 20 days to go before the remainder of the studio opens.

I agree with you Volker.

Do we have to keep repeating the same complaints over and over?

I'm sure that by now Tesla Motors has the point. They either will or won't make the changes that "you" want, but in any case they can't please everyone.

I'm assuming that TM is using these forums for nothing more than feedback. And the more they get the better. Good, bad and ugly (aka where the caps button is on).

That is how beta stuff goes to "A-rev" after all.

As much a fan of TESLA that I am, I still need to point out: They are officially missing their stated schedule now. Hope this is not the start of a pattern.....

Well, I guess its winter somewhere... no wait, that only works for time.

a wee quibble: Iridium is not gone without a trace. Still kickin', and has contracted with SpaceX for numerous launches for their next-gen satellites.

Iridium – Flight 1 ---- 2015 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 2 ---- 2015 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 3 ---- 2015 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 4 ---- 2016 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 5 ---- 2016 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 6 ---- 2016 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 7 ---- 2017 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

Iridium – Flight 8 ---- 2017 ---- Falcon 9 ---- Vandenberg

MCLEAN, Va. and HAWTHORNE, Calif. – June 16, 2010 – Iridium Communications Inc. (Nasdaq:IRDM) and Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) are pleased to announce that the Falcon 9 will be a major provider of launch services for Iridium NEXT, Iridium’s next-generation satellite constellation. The $492 million contract, while being the largest single commercial launch deal ever signed, nonetheless represents a new benchmark in cost-effective satellite delivery to space.

That's $61.5 million/launch, fixed-price.

For a $492 million dollar contract for space launches I wonder if you get a free Model S or X?

There can be too much of a good thing. As long as "more" means "more variety", I agree. But currently the nuggets get lost in noise.

Geez, yeah! Even a dozen would only be about a ¼% bonus/incentive!

Ron5 | 2012年3月20日

Yes, I've even been using Iridium!

Looks like the updated design studio is live! Go check it out!

Maestrokneer | 2012年3月23日

Yay it's HERE! Already found one error though. It doesn't remember if you select the piano black interior. So you have to keep changing it, otherwise it will revert to what you had selected previously.

Maestrokneer | 2012年3月23日

Looks nice though. I'm a little disappointed though that it didn't come with a "configure" option where you can choose all of your options and get an out the door price. That way you could save different configurations to help make the decision.

h8young | 2012年3月23日

I'm having the same problem, won't save the piano black selection.

wbrown01 | 2012年3月23日

I think the server is about to crash, I can't logon now, however I did earlier and it works good. I did not select the piano black.

prash.saka | 2012年3月24日

@Maestrokneer, even I have the similar issue; I see only the Interior tab and the options and packages are no longer there. Perhaps, they will be available shortly.

Talking about out of the door price, does anyone know what the delivery charges for the Model S are?

Also, I know that the Model S is delivered to our homes. How exactly is it delivered? I mean, I hope they don't drive it to my place; will they? Or would it be brought in a trailer or something?

Love the new design center. Now, I will spend/waste a few hours playing with it.

@Brian, good to know the latest on Iridium. If I can, I will switch it with Apple's own Newton as the second example of products that tanked miserably.
