    Are you getting a car then Jay?

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      Well, the Model 3 pictured is black. Surely Elon wouldn’t dare give it to anyone else? 😮

  2. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

    Why the mysterious partial silhouette? Haven’t we already seen the production version of the car?

    Is this just more from Tesla’s hype factory? Or are they really going to surprise us?

    Of course, that’s exactly what they want us to ask… So I fell for it! 🙂

    1. Stimpy says:

      It’s just a partially illuminated picture of the car that looks nice. Nothing mysterious about it.

      1. ffbj says:

        That’s what I told the cop when he said I was concealed.
        No, I said I’m only “partially illuminated.”

    2. Delta says:

      Maybe this is the Model Y silhouette!!! Maybe Tesla spring out a new reveal for Model Y to just drive up the hysteria. Why not ratchet up the excitement to eleven.

  3. Josh Bryant says:

    Remarks will begin at “9PM”

    /fixed

    How is it that there is already one production Model 3, we are a little over a week away from more customers getting their Model 3s, and we STILL don’t have the EPA range, nor window sticker?

    1. jelloslug says:

      Could it be that those things will be revealed at the reveal?

      1. GeorgeS says:

        Funny jello but actually a good question.

      2. Jim_NJ says:

        You’re probably right that the window sticker details will be revealed at the reveal. But I can’t recall another car that was actually in production where you couldn’t find that information. Actually, usually at least a month or more before production that information is available.

        1. Rob Stark says:

          You couldn’t find information on the Bolt EV until the official reveal.

          1. Jim_NJ says:

            The range of the Chevy Bolt Ev was released on 9/13/16. The first Bolt was delivered on 12/13/16. If Tesla did the same, we would have known the Model 3 EPA range on 4/27/17. FWIW, I think the range will be over 250 miles for the 3.
            http://insideevs.com/chevrolet-bolt-ev-rated-238-miles-electric-range/

            1. I think they are holding their cards close, to:
              A) Ratchet up Mystic,
              B) To keep competition wondering,
              And C) To surprise everyone with the Numbers!

              However, there will soon be 30 people getting a Model 3, so one might think that, A) They know who they are already, and B) at some point before the delivery party / Reveal #3, they will have to finalize their orders, and so will get details we have not!

              A leak could still happen, but it might be tough, as they might be under some NDA, as to saying anything before this event!

              1. (⌐■_■) Trollnonymous says:

                The 30 peeps are TSLA employees.
                You can pretty much guarantee an NDA was signed.

                1. Terawatt says:

                  Still, such info tends to leak. It’s what anonymous sources are for!

        2. unlucky says:

          The sticker has to exist before you sell it, not before you produce it.

          Tesla has shown a production model but it’s not for sale yet. It seems legal.

          1. Tom says:

            However the information on that sticker has to be approved by the govt first and such approval/information is public record. So the govt doesn’t withhold such info for ‘reveals’ and therefore one can assume the govt has not yet approved the range etc. Either Musk is playing games hoping it will get to final approval stage by July 28 OR these first 30 cars which were almost certainly hand assembled (or at least partially) and are being ‘sold’ to employees of Tesla just might in fact still officially test vehicles as far as the govt is classifying them and perhaps are not actually going to be ‘sold’ by or on the 28th but rather being put in the hands of employees as test vehicles.

            1. unlucky says:

              I believe it is quite possible the 30 cars won’t be sold at all. That they will be essentially loaned to 30 employees.

              But if that doesn’t happen there are still almost two weeks for Tesla to get that EPA sticker. I don’t have any trouble believing it can be done.

            2. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

              “Either Musk is playing games hoping it will get to final approval stage by July 28 OR… perhaps are not actually going to be ‘sold’ by or on the 28th but rather being put in the hands of employees as test vehicles.”

              Maybe. Or maybe the EPA has told Tesla the date it will be issuing the stickers.

              1. unlucky says:

                Or maybe the EPA already completed the tests and the EPA is withholding the information until Tesla says so.

                The FCC does it upon request, can’t see why the EPA wouldn’t do it.

    Take a gimbal.

  6. (⌐■_■) Trollnonymous says:

    Meh.
    Anyone wanna bet it will start late and/or the internet “Feed” will be suckie??

    Everyone there will probably try and Periscope/Facebook Live from their phone compounding the issue. 😛

    lol

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.” 😉

      1. Jay Cole says:

        Given past events we have covered, for sure it will be delayed, but we have had a good track record being able to stream all the events so far. Hopefully it all goes as planned.

      2. (⌐■_■) Trollnonymous says:

        “History repeats itself”

  7. GeorgeS says:

    Which IEV’S reporter will be there jay?

    1. Jay Cole says:

      We are a bit inside the loop on this one, so at Tesla’s request, we can’t really report on the event more than the official invitation we got. Sorry about that.

  8. Bacardi says:

    I’ll ask the important question; what kind of food will be served?

    1. (⌐■_■) Trollnonymous says:

      +100

      The most appropriate question!

      The inappropriate question is will Alcohol be served?

  9. BillT says:

    Hopefully they will stream it live. I will get my wine and cheese ready.

    1. Jay Cole says:

      Shouldn’t be a problem, we have hosted all the livestream debut/events so far, (=

  10. Kdawg says:

    Did the first 30 people get to choose anything about their cars?

    1. Bacardi says:

      Whether or not they want the pre-paid maintainance plan if nothing else…

  11. scott franco says:

    Congratulations on your getting an invite!

  12. Mister G says:

    I WANT MY MODEL 3

  13. Mister G says:

    I WANT MY TM3
    I WANT MY I WANT MY TM3…expressed to the tune of MTV LOL

    1. lo says:

      Money for nothing, but the chicks for free…
