I just received a new update with a teaser picture of the new Model S that will be unveiled on March 26th.
This information was provided on the ordering process for Tesla Roadster owners.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from customers since we provided a teaser photo last week, we decided to offer a special opportunity to you – the early adopters of the Roadster. You have been instrumental in our early success, and we appreciate your continued passion and belief in Tesla’s vision.

Instead of waiting until March 26 to reserve a Model S Signature Series, you may reserve one now for a $40,000 refundable reservation fee. There will be 1000 Signature Series sedans each for US and Europe delivery. As with the Roadster Signature Series, your vehicle production number is a function of when the reservation payment is received.

At the launch party, we’ll open reservations for the Model S Signature Series and the regular Model S sedans to everyone. According to our current production plan, only the Signature series is expected to be delivered in 2011, with regular production starting in 2012. Roadster owners will receive a $10,000 discount off the final sales price of the Signature Series Model S.

Please call us at 650-413-6300 or email us at for details and a reservation agreement. The Model S aspires to become the automotive icon of the 21st century – a gorgeous yet practical electric vehicle that will liberate even more drivers from oil addiction.
