P Configurations

I thought it would be interesting to see what configurations we have chosen, especially for the P reservation holders. And, perhaps, why.

I think that there is a similar thread somewhere out there. But, there is no way to search for it. And, what the heck, let's start a brand new one.

My reservation is P 6806, and my configuration is:
- 230 mile battery pack
- black exterior
- black cloth interior
- upgraded audio system
- no other options

Pretty much the basic stuff. The only reason for the 230 mile upgrade (from 160 mile one) is to be on the safe side where I can use a supercharger if needed. And if the supercharger hardware costs more than $3000, I might as well get the 300 mile battery pack.

Current thoughts for reservation P5903

...
If lease option becomes available I will consider bumping up to 85kW
Promised for next year, so you're probably good to go.

Bah. Stupid tag system here.

P2868
Black
Pano roof
Tech pkg
230 range
19" wheel
tan leather

I am with gjunky. Decision after test drive, but most likely a cancel. It the car a good value? Maybe, but it does not make a difference if you cannot afford it.

P2698
85kWh Performance
Tech Package
21" Performance Wheels (or maybe normal 21s)
Pearl White with probably body colour roof
Maybe Tan leather
Maybe Obeche Wood
Parcel Shelf

NOT
Studio Sound
Twin Chargers
Rear facing seats

Canada P157 everything depends on Canadian pricing. My model S, if THE PRICE IS RIGHT:

85 kWh Battery Pack
Black
Tan Leather interior
Active air suspension
Obeche Wood
Parcel shelf
Studio Sound (maybe)

P4909

60 kWh battery (85 kWh depending on reasonable lease option and the length of my commute in 2013)
Black exterior
Black leather
Obeche wood trim (possibly consider Lacewood)
Tech package
Parcel shelf

My Config for shure is:

Performance Production
Black Colour
Grey Seats
Obeche Wood
Tech Pack
Hifi Pro
Glss Roof

It's damn expensive, but I don't want to make the wrong decision... and non-performance edition is definitly wrong

cybercop;
Keep the defer/lease sequence option in mind. Pay the first xx lease payments with your deposit refund!

*60 kWh battery--so I can supercharge if needed.
*Green with black cloth seats --I wish I could get tan cloth seats; I even considered tan leather and am still not sure; heated seats in the winter would be quite lovely I'm sure! Heated leather seats in the summer--not so much! As a friend once put it, you need a spatula to separate yourself from the seat!
*I will probably get the tech package; night driving has never been easy for me and the headlights sound great in this regard.
*parcel shelf--it does surprise me that this is not just included.
*Active air--the frost heaves, snow and potholes in spring will make having this feature quite nice.
*twin chargers, etc.
*Pano roof--this feature has me giddy!
I may whoop it up and get the leather and the 85 battery. Saving $3000 on another $10,000 for the battery is sort of like a sale on the upgraded battery--still, it's another 7 grand. I'm glad I have time to think about it. The way I see it, I've put down $5,000 and then with the $7,500 rebate, I can subtract $12,500 off of the bottom line; that is, of course, after taxes, delivery....

- 85 kWh battery (This is my main car, it will need to be capable of vacation trips)

- Silver (Hides the dirt and makes the chrome not so offensive. The chrome around the windows is particularly ugly on dark coloured cars.)

- Black cloth seats ( I wish there was grey fabric. I have no idea why anyone would want leather, let alone pay extra for it. Leather might last a year before cracking and be either sticky or slippery depending upon the temperature.)

- Plain 'ol black trim. (I'd love matt black because glossy in the interior is a safety hazard when the sun is out and wood in cars seems so 19th century. Maybe I can use some sandpaper :-)

- Body colour roof (I really dislike leaky, noisy, and breakable holes in the roof).

- Areo wheels (I hope that there will be some by the time my number is up. A sensible eco tire and wheel size would be greatly appreciated too. 19" and 21" are about as energy inefficient, aka range-limiting, as you can get--besides they make the car look like it belongs some sixteen year old).

- Twin chargers (I really hope that the supercharger network becomes real outside of the East and West coasts)

- HPC (Will allow others

- Air suspension

- Tech package

- Sound system (Yes, I'm a sucker for any high tech, including audio)

- No parcel shelf (There is hidden storage in the frunk and $250 for something that should be included in the price by every other car maker is just a rip-off.)

85 KWh 1. This will be my primary vehicle.
2. Trips from DC to New York on a single charge would be possible, as well as cross country trips
via supercharger.
3. Daily, one way commute to work, 30 miles, 85KWh makes it easy to keep batter charged between
50-85% thus preserving the life of the battery.
4. 0-60 in 5.6 (this is respectable)

Dolphin Grey: Elegant without being formal, sporty, futuristic, easy to clean, hides scratches, Grey is the new
Black.

Tan Leather: Gives depth to the appropriately minimalist interior, accentuates interior space, makes the interior
look like a 80k car, classy, facilitates a cool interior in sunny weather.

Lacewood: Because it is Futuristically Organic, hides smudges, & blends the colors of my intended interior

Pano roof: Sun roof, enables back seat passengers to have improve viewing, improved rear seat head
room,

Active suspension : improved handling, improved highway range, steep driveways, driving through standing
water

19 inch wheels : range, tire longevity, tire price, spare will easily fit in the frunk.

Parcel shelf: duh

Debating on the tech package ( if non tech package still has Fog lights (non LED) I will most likely not get the Tech package). The websit is ambiguous I'm not interested in the other features.

Debating on Sound package ( I listen to a wide variety of loud music, but I'm just not convinced I will need it). Most likely if the standard sterior is not good enough I will simply replace the speakers to achieve a quality at a fraction of the cost. However I hope I don't need to do that.

I WOULD LOVE A LOW PROFILE UNIQUE CENTER CONSOLE AS AN ACCESORY IN THE FUTURE !

If anyone has any comments, clarifications or suggestions I would love to hear from you !

Sorry about the formatting.

Regarding the console, if the entire top was in matching Lacewood that would be fantastic. If not I will have my own made.

If the center console accessory (CCA) is available in 2012 and the design is shared with us over the next few months (and I like what TM has created), I'll wait and have the TM CCA installed. But if we get no indication of the CCA design and/or its availability, I'll have a CCA design I've created fabricated at a local custom shop. BTW, lacewood veneer can be acquired from many different web-based sources and can be stained to match the Model S accent color, so a lacewood veneer top is no problem for a custom CCA.

Soflauthor,

Thank you !

60kwh *
Black Exterior / Matching Roof
Tan Leather Interior
Obeche Trim
Parcel Shelf
Tech Package ? **
Sound Upgrade ? ***

I noticed someone spec'd the Twin Charger without the High Power Wall Connector. I thought the Twin Charger doesn't do anything unless paired with the High Power Wall Connector?

* I change between 60kwh and 85kwh weekly, final answer will depend on where supercharge evolves to, actual 0-60 difference, language of battery warranty, and what becomes the most common kwh pack option.

** Does no tech pack mean no 4G/Wifi/music download capability? Will Google turn-by-turn navigation work without continuous 4G?

*** Do I have to get the sound upgrade to ever have XM? Does Pandora require a continuous 4G link (i.e. will in work in back country)?

- I noticed someone spec'd the Twin Charger without the High Power Wall Connector. I thought the Twin Charger doesn't do anything unless paired with the High Power Wall Connector?

At home, that's correct. But the supercharger needs the twin charger to charge at the most rapid rate--at least, that's how I understand it.

That is not correct. The Super Charger is DC current which bypasses the converters and goes straight to the battery. Twin chargers, and in fact no charger=Converter is needed to access the Supercharger. Twin chargers=converters are needed to convert high power AC Current as supplied by the Power Wall connector.

P 6561 (I think)

Performance
Sequoia Green
Grey interior
Obeche wood
Tech
Pano
Child Seats
Body Protection
Studio Sound
Twin chargers (future proofing)
(basically everything but the parcel shelf)
Second set of wheels (19")for winter tires.

Still debating:
Wheels, do I prefer the grey or silver?
HPC, I don't know if I have adequate electrical service to run a 100amp circuit. If I don't then my understanding is that this doesn't make much sense.

Why? I think that it was the third or so reply that said, essentially, I'm planning on keeping this thing for a while so I'm going to get the one I want and not kick myself over it later.

Edit, I'm P 5,651

Tesla has (just today?) set up a dedicated website to eliminate uncertainties like these:

P5583

Performance - the excellent performance of Tesla cars is the reason for the 'Tesla Grin' (tm)
Pacific blue - I want a color that is actually a color (black, silver, grey, white are not colors), although I do like the look of the silver car. My current car is black.
Black interior
Carbon fiber
Spoiler - looks
21" performance wheels - looks
Panoramic roof - I like to see the sun and rain
Tech package - auto keyless entry and homelink, integrated nav
Sound studio - have to have it
Parcel shelf - cheaper than a broken window
Not sure: Paint Armor

Now that P reservation holders are actually configuring I'm very curious to see what folks are locking in.

TM obviously squashed this thread back in June. They claimed technical difficulties with the forum when asked but then magically manually freed up one-off posts. Good to see this thread is open again. I wonder why they are so sensitive to this info being posted. I would imagine every user of the forum would post their config so we can all (including TM) benefit from the info.
