I'm in the Bay Area on business and stopped by the Santana Row store as I had never seen the Model S in person let alone sat in the seat. I'll spare everybody the personal commentary (other than the panoramic roof being really cool and the sloping roof in the rear seats a potential headroom issue--I'm 6'). Three interesting tidbits came out that I don't remember seeing earlier:
1. Design elements, including paint, leather and dashboard accents, should be in the Santana Row store in 10-12 days. They will be on a tray and can be taken outside to view in sunshine/street lights. I don't know the rollout schedule for other stores.
2. The interior configurations in the design studio will go online at the same time.
3. There is a planned event to offer test drives at the factory, on the banked track, in late April or early May.
Can't vouch for the accuracy of the facts but can vouch for the accuracy of the transcription ;-)
