    well, considering the photo has Clarkson Square in the background, it’s probably that one LOL

  2. It’s going to get interesting as more stars start showing up at awards shows in chauffer driven Model X’s! More buzz!

    Now I am wondering about when we will see central product placement of the X in movies? Busines Jet flying company owners arriving at their Lear Jet or Global Express in the Model X!

  3. As an aside, does the Model X accellerate to 60 mph faster than a Falcon 9 on launch?

    1. MikeM says:

      Well, the Falcon 9 clearly has > 1g acceleration or it would’t get off the ground. Trouble is; it has to go vertically.

      I’m betting it would outrun a Model X in a vertical climb in the first few milliseconds since it doesn’t need super sticky tires.

      Robert Weekley asked:

      “…does the Model X accellerate [sic] to 60 mph faster than a Falcon 9 on launch?”

      Oh, easily. Only 3.1 or 3.7 seconds into the launch of a large rocketship, it’s still struggling to clear the gantry.

      The Saturn V-Apollo rocketship expended 1/2 its fuel just lifting itself its own height above the ground, and I’d expect the ratio isn’t much better for the Falcon 9. As a rocketship uses up its fuel it gets lighter, so the acceleration improves as the flight progresses. It’s the reverse for the Model X; the faster it goes, the slower the acceleration.

    It’s certainly is the height of fashion in the automotive field. Tesla is embarking on all sorts of initiatives concerning the Model X, which indicates to me, that they are confident that they will be able to meet the demand they spark.

    Looking like a good year for Tesla is shaping up as we move towards the March 31st reveal.

    Didn’t they just say on the conference call that “Tesla doesn’t advertise”?

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      Not “they”, but he — Elon Musk — unfortunately did recently make that obviously untrue claim. I hafta think Tesla’s marketing department reps must often cringe at the unfiltered remarks, and the level of hype, coming from their CEO.

      Tesla does advertise. Tesla does pay for endorsements, again directly contrary to what Elon claimed in that recent conference call. That’s what Tesla’s referral program does: it encourages, and pays for, personal endorsements from people who aren’t Tesla employees.

      What Tesla has not done, at least not yet, is pay for mass market advertising. I think it’s a question of when, not if, they will start to do so.

      1. So – PP, If he said that they advertise – would not most people ask – where? Ina Magazine? In a Newspaper? On TV? On the Radio? Or – per your line of reasoning – “What Tesla has not done, at least not yet, is pay for mass market advertising” is kind of like Splitting Hairs – in that saying if they show up at a Car Show – they are advertising – just not to the general public (meaning – only to people that come to the car show are they ‘Advertising’) So – without adding the words “MASS MARKET” to his statement – it seems you are saying he was Incorrect, did not tell the WHOLE TRUTH, or what?

        I expect – in saying that they don’t advertise – means if you don’t come to them, or where they are – you will not otherwise see them, or their product, which in my mind – is a bit different that what most call advertising – in that Advertising usually hits you between the content you are seeking – be it TV, Radio, Newspaper, Magazine, or whatever!

        So – in the sense of what you are saying – and my presented definition of advertising – you could add that Each and Every Tesla Store – should be billed to an Advertising Expense part of their budget – since – when you walk through a mall and come across a Tesla Store unexpectedly your first time – that the Store – was in fact – an Advertisement – since it interrupted on your otherwise intended shopping trip and presented you with an Electric Car to see, when you weren’t otherwise looking for one!

          “…kind of like Splitting Hairs…”

          Robert, you are not just “kind of like” splitting hairs; you’ve just written hundreds of words in a rather wordy, but entirely futile, effort to do exactly that.

          Does your income depend somehow on trying to convince people that some forms of advertising “aren’t really” advertising? If not, why would you even try to convince us of something that every educated person knows is simply not true?

          Advertising is advertising, regardless of whether it’s aired on TV or radio; if it’s printed in newspaper or magazines; if it’s posted on social media such as Elon Musk’s tweets; or if it’s broadcast on Internet streaming video, like Tesla’s media events.

          Heck, even sticking flyers under windshield wipers at a mall, or a carnival barker haranguing passersby to entice them into a sideshow, is advertising.

          So go peddle your papers elsewhere. (And yeah, that’s a reference to advertising too!)
