Today is the day folks, Tesla will more than likely be talking about the upcoming $35,000 estimated Model X at a press conference later today.

The American electric automaker hasn’t so much as teased why it’s holding a press conference at 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET, but it does have quite a bit that it’s working on.

CEO Elon Musk might finally reveal the production Model X, and could detail when Model X deliveries will begin. There’s also the possibility that the company will finally spill some concrete details on the Tesla Model 3, an entry-level model that promises to deliver a 250-mile range and be priced around $35,000.

Or it might not be automotive related at all and Musk could show off more of the company’s Powerwall technology. Whatever it is, you can bet that AutoGuide.com will be reporting the news as it breaks during the press conference.

Crazy performance. Once these are in the hands of consumers I know some of them will be taking it to the 1320 to see what they can smoke off the line :D

I bet that this will spur other manufacturers to make products that compete, and that is something that I am not gong to complain about.

What is the 1320?

distinctive styling
That will be interesting, the Model S while it looks good, having a fresh look for a competitive volume segment will be one of many factors to help them out.

Model X was spied today:

Tesla Model X Caught Testing New Sensors in Video

The Tesla Model X has been caught on camera testing new sensors.

In an age where the vast majority of people have a video camera in their pocket, it’s no surprise that companies like Tesla can’t test their vehicles in peace. Recently, one driver in Berkeley, California, probably broke a law to film the Tesla Model X testing on public roadways, and it appears that the American electric automaker is using some new sensors that look quite mysterious.

A series of suction cups along with wiring can be seen on the front of the car and on the roof and could be related to the company’s self-driving technology. We won’t really speculate on what Tesla could be working on or testing with its Model X, but it does look like the luxury all-electric crossover is nearing production just like its CEO Elon Musk has promised. The Tesla Model X will make its official debut later this year ahead of its first deliveries in the third quarter

"it’s no surprise that companies like Tesla can’t test their vehicles in peace." That statement made me laugh! Most vehicle producers allow and even promote the taking of pictures of its vehicle testing, especially GM, as other posts in this forum has on the 2017 Bolt EV. GM has even posted its own YouTube video showing the Bolt test procedures and DC charging as an "ad" to the future Bolt interest. But GM is smart to use black vinly cladding or camoflague painting/cladding to cover up the body lines, so any competitor cannot see what the final vehicle will look like. As a fact, even these 55 test Bolts are considered preproduction "mules" for testing the electrc power train and the production vehicles can be entirely different.

Tesla Motors doesn't put out ads for their models, so this casual catchings on camera actually does their promotion for free. So they don't need to test in "peace". Musk himself would had laught at your statement, too!

The model X may be coming out soon! It's a race between manufacturers in the electronic cars industry this year and next year.

The Model X will indeed launch in September, Tesla confirmed today in its quarterly letter to shareholders. Deliveries to the crossover's first buyers will begin in late Q3, although Tesla expects only a "small number" will make it out during the quarter.
Most people won't even see one bit the Model X is on it's way.
