    I don't know what the trolls hope to accomplish with the "./ is deleting posts and banning people" song and dance with never a shred of easy to come by proof, if it were happening. No one believes it, the uproar would make this beta thing look insignificant.

    Tesla should have concentrated on producing a credible hatchback, Volkswagen Golf competitor they could sell worldwide. If they could get a section of that market then things would change very rapidly. As it is they're simply chasing after niches and not gaining enough critical mass.

    Have you looked at the pictures that have been released? Some would say that the X *is* a hatchback. Bigger than a golf, granted, but still the design is firmly in the hatch territory. They call it an SUV because the nomenclature of "station wagon" has huge negative implications, and hatchback is codespeak for "cheap car that's almost a station wagon" in the US. [url][/url]. The third row will be unusable of you're of normal adult height due to the roofline.
