It just looks weird. Everything else about it is amazing.
everyone are using an ipad screen as center console nowadays (2017 Audi A4, Benz C & CLA, BMW, Mazda..etc etc)

I hate it too, but you should probably get used to it
At least their screen is much bigger than everyone else

i'd rather have an ipad i know is going to work smooth/well and consistently than some other 3rd part peripheral which isn't as good of a processor/touch screen

a lot of people i know in finance dont see much of a future for Tesla as an auto-maker, they just dont have the ability to keep up with demand, and even with the new factory, a 3 year wait list is going to be a killer for profit.

most seem to think down the road there will be more electric cars from other major manufacturers but "powered by Tesla" in terms of their batteries etc.

i know a few people with the Model S though and it really does seem like a fantastic car

Did they give you a estimate to when you'll receive the car?

Elon said in the key note they hope to begin production late 2017. So likely early 2018 for delivery.

Tesla is amazing and it is in its own class.

People who don't like Ford, GM and Chrysler are buying Tesla too. It doesn't even seem like an American manufacture...or seems like higher quality American manufacture. Like Apple, Boeing, IBM, etc..

this reminds me of back in the old soviet days when people finally able to afford a new car, put in their deposits for a lada, get put on a waiting list, and then wait forever because there is no ETA on arrival...

Parents ordered their Model 3 as well, getting some sort of priority since they are current owners. RHD though so GG...

Friend's Model S I shot some photos of in December:
