    So we know the HUD is dead and AWD is delayed. I haven't heard much on the spaceship like controls which is one thing Elon did tell us was coming that we haven't seen. Did they back off from this? It sounded like it would be different than the Model S. Any guesses?

    @Teslaliving , as you know, Trev from M3OC appropriately keeps reminding us this statement by Elon was made before they got such an unexpected - yet welcome - success with Model ≡ reservations and took the decision to anticipate the planned launch by two years... As much as the original intent may have been to make the interior look more like a spaceship (whatever that means we actually don't know), novel or revolutionary interior design has most likely been scrapped (at best delayed quite a bit) to ensure timely & successful launch per plan mid-2017. This is the absolute top priority.
    The car will be great. We've seen it 'in person' now...

    Elon does not have a history of not delivering on things he's said. He's notorious for being very late on things, but not completely off the mark in statements like that. The Model S has steering wheel controls (tactile). It remains to be seen what the Model 3 will offer on the wheel.

    I did not imply he won't deliver and still really look forward to my car!
    I agree there are still some big unknowns, particularly the meaning of the 'you won't care' tweet... ;) So, yes, much remains to be seen yet I have scaled down my expectations not to be disappointed... :)

    Thats a wise move. Expect what we saw in the initial reveal and be pleasantly surprised with more.

    Also, don't expect more features than what it has when you buy it. While they can add things via software updates over time, some things (individual tire pressures anyone?) require different hardware. And the software can take a long time to come out. It does get better over time, but if it doesn't have everything you want when you're ready to buy then you may want to wait.
