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.
They are either taking the maximum time to get the best finished product...or there's a delay coming our way.
I think i will only have true confidence in TM if they manage to indeed produce the 5000 esses in 2012 they said they would.
the additional scoop thread says 10 to 12 days from the 29th. That makes the 12th of march as the later date. Maybe you should count to that date?
I'll believe it when I see it.
Ides of March FTW!
You beat me to it, Disco...
Would that be "For The Win", or "F*** The World"??
Did TM say which hemisphere "Winter 2012" applies to?
Just looked at the design studio page and it now says "coming soon" rather than the prior "coming this winter." Safe to assume this is an admission that they are not going to make the self-imposed "this winter" deadline? Bummer, since I am a Signature reservation holder and am anxious to see the final interior options.
I should also note the "Options" tab still refers to "coming this winter."
"coming soon" / "coming this winter"
This is almost as repeated as the Optional/TBD of 60 kWh supercharging.
coming this winter
COMING SOON (^)
It's been this same look for as long as I've been looking at Model S Design Studio.
No change here.
*Watching Water Boil* ;)
The "coming this winter" boxes do seem to have re-appeared... still agree with BYT, difficult to be patient with the slow process.
My daughter has updated the old adage
"a watched pot never boils" to
"a watched file never downloads" :-)
And when she's a dating teenager, it'll be "a watched phone never rings". :)
@Mycroft: You're dating yourself. Those under 30 watch phones 24/7 these days. Facebook, texts, etc. But I'm sure there's some equivalent... ("A watched wall never gets posted")???
"Mycroft: You're dating yourself."
Ha! At my age, that's quite easy to do. :-)
@Mycroft Aargh...must resist....success.
Teenagers today don't wait for phone to ring. In fact they don't use phone as a phone. My (much younger) coworker said he pretty much doesn't use his own phone for actual phone calls, his work phone is for that. Two completely different worlds apparently.
At Santana Row today I heard that a new 'event' is going to be announced in the next 3-4 weeks. Don't know what.
I hope it will be, "come to the factory for a test drive on our track!"
I wonder how fast they will let us go.
For the test drive on the track, I assume they would offer it at certain times/dates and we would have to reserve it in advance? Can you imagine the line of people if they just opened it up for a test drive on a close track? It will be better then a ride at Disneyland (or Great America if your a local).
@Robert, I like that! "a watched file never downloads" especially being a computer monkey myself!
I don't have much trouble with downloads at 15mbps, but TM forum pages often take ½ to 1½ min to load. Each. Every time I change pages.
Curse you, Mickey Mouse servers!!
Problem for that slow page load is not with the Tesla servers, you need to look closer to your end of the chain for the problem. I get every page in less than a second.
In Finland? You must be getting feeds from a caching or mirror server farm there. Try running tracert or the NeoTrace utility.
We have here very fast tubes to net. In several cases sites in NY answer faster than site next town.
Yeah, I get about 11 nodes, of which 2 time out, on tracert pings. From Vancouver, just up the coast.
19 hops, one timeout, about 200ms. I expect my home computer to be slightly faster.
Tracert doesn't really tell much about transfer speeds, just how many hops it takes to reach the server. It is like the name says just trace of which route connection takes.
Might the delay (in our opinions) in getting the rest of the design center mounted be related to the fires in the Volt which require additional crash testing. As I understand it, Chevy is adding some reinforcement to the battery pack to prevent a fire problem. Maybe the safety people are looking more closely at TM's battery packs and finding they too need some redesign.
