Model S at Juguar Dealership

I had the pleasure of dropping my son off at Jaguar Marin last evening. As soon as I pulled in, and before I got out the car almost everyone in the dealership came out, with bright eyes and big grins. They LOVED the car. They were amazed at the look and lines of the car, did not realized how big Model S was, as the felt it would be a small departure from Roadster. They were astonished by the 17 inch screen - they said you could see the world through that screen. They loved the styling and profile of the car. In particular, one salesman said "I never owned a red car and I am a buff, but this red is the most beautiful red I have ever seen". I informed him, he would be too later as Signature red is now gone.

One of the salesperson previously worked at British Motors in Silicon Valley, and test drove Roadster during development in 2006. His dad owns a lotus, so was quite familiar with the Tesla program. In fact, he was informed then that Tesla had plans to develop a sedan in the near future. The bottom line is, Model S was a big hit at Jaguar Marin. One son has a MBZ - I guess, I will have to take him in at the next opportunity :).

Did you let them know the XF was copied from the S?

heh, good one, Brian.

Yep Brian, you made me laugh. That's funny.

It's also true. The S came out before the XF was revealed.

Can't pick on Jag too much. Every automaker is going to have to play 'catch-up' to the Model S. Most are going to swing and miss.

Xf went on sale in late 2007, and revealed much earlier.
Preproduction model s revealed in 2011.
Brits know how to make good-looking cars.

Microsoft Windows vs Apple iOS. Apple. After years of repeated s/w conflicts, viruses and lockup I bought an iPAD and 21.5" iMAC and could not be happier. Here the question, will Elon do the same with s/w that runs Tesla Model S and Model X for the more reliable and stable Apple iOS.

Correction that's Apple iOS and OS X
