    Just to be completely clear...there's absolutely nothing about an NDA that implies a conspiracy. There may simply be some minor details that Tesla would prefer not have made public just yet..it's not that big of a deal either way. There probably have not been any NDAs, but if there were it could explain some of the radio silence on the delivered vehicles.

    Maybe the explaination for the radio silence is, those people have real lives and don't sit around all day obsessing about Model S on TMC. Sorry, but it had to be said.

    For the record, I totally got the joke and thought it was a great post! But others sort of took off and ran with the "well, maybe people did sign NDAs or something because why haven't we heard anything from anyone who already got a car delivered!?!?!?!?" I was responding to those subsequent posts, not yours.

    And for the record and to flame the conspiracy theorists. My wife and I have both signed NDAs with Tesla Motors. I could tell you about it, but then they'd need to kill both of us.
    Why would you sign an NDA? Did they offer you some incentive or was it a requirement to receive your car? Sounds odd?? Can u post a pic?

    No, I'm quite sure Tesla threatened them with death.

    I've brought up several computer manufacturing lines and NDA's are standard practice when new IP is developed for big stuff like major reworks. But this feels more like an embargo as I'm sure there is a relief or trigger date in the near future.

    For ten years free service plus a replacement battery when the updated ones come out, I'll sign all the NDAs they want
