Is there a sun shield for the sunroof in the Model S?
I sat in the back seat for a few hours the other day as one of our passengers said she would get car sick in the back. I'm 6'6" and my head is only about an inch from the pano roof when I sit back there, but we got the pano roof primarily so I could sit in the back when necessary, and I am quite comfortable back there. The car had been sitting in the sun (Fresno CA) and it was quite hot inside, when we got in for the trip home. I had a real sensation of heat coming directly from the roof onto the top of my head. I put my fingers up there, and the inside of the roof was hot enough so that one wouldn't want to touch it for long and I was worried about the comfort of the trip home. With the AC running, however, in a few minutes things were quite comfortable in the back and the inside surface of the roof cooled considerably. No problem.
A sunshade is under development as promised. There is absolutely glare off of chrome surfaces. As the sun gets higher here in the northeast it's becoming more evident, especially around the instrument cluster. I'm sure it's not as simple as it may seem to retrofit the sunroof but Tesla did commit to it. In the interim just crank up the screen brightness.
Don't see a need for a pano sun shade...will not get it even if it is offered.
I just added 3m Crystal 50% on my pano roof, because living in Az you can feel the heat and the bright sun was annoying me. My wife didn't seem to mind, but she enjoys light inside the car. She did comment that she was happy with the tint, because it wasn't too bright and made if feel a bit cooler in the car.
As an owner STRONGLY that Tesla makes an retractable sunroof and pano roof shade that can block sunlight and reduce noise. UV light may be not entirely blocked (can report that I have grown darker driving my car over the past 11 months-so definite risk of skin cancer that some enthuisiasts who disagree may wanna consider!

Wear a hat!
Though I believe the roof blocks out something like 87% of the UV rays, that is 87% more than what you get as soon as you step out of the car.
It really baffles me when people don't do what I call "play the tape to the end". The roof is glass, if you don't like the idea of sunlight getting through, then why buy that option? What would be the point of a glass roof that already blocks 92% of the light, to then only cover it up. That's like buying a convertible and then complain about the sun.
@Rhyalus - It looks as if the Heat Shield brand makes custom-cut sun shields for all of the Model S windows except the pano roof: http://www.teslaccessories.com/products/heatshield-custom-gold-series-su...
Any cover would take up space and negate the space advantages of the Pano roof. Why get the Pano roof if you aren't going to use it. Since the whole roof is glass, it would have to be some type of rollup device (unless they went to a translucent glass that you could turn on and off electronically but not sure how much difference that would make) which just sounds like another complex solution to a non-problem.
You are custom building your car; don't order if you don't want it.
