    Cross-posting from the Model X forum - Tesla confirmed (once again?) that there'd be no factory towing option for the Model S:

    VIN P 3552 - 60 kWh with Supercharging, Green, Black Roof, Black Leather, Piano Black trim, Tech Package, Active Air Suspension, 19" Wheels, Firmware v5.9 (1.51.94), 23,000+ blissful miles since January 2013!

    No hitch for the Model S? How am I going to tow my Roadster to the track?

  7. #37
    I intend to make a hitch for my S - just to mount a bike rack. I've made them for my Boxster, my Prius and a friends BMW Z3.

    There is no way to know how hard it will be until I get my Model S and have a chance to remove the rear undertray and look underneath it.
    The Prius has two tow hooks at the back of the car that you can remove and attach a hitch mount to.
    The Model S is going to have to have some kind of tow hook attachment points - hopefully they will be under the car instead of behind a little square door in the bumper.

    Obviously you need a Model X.

    wow if that car was used in a crash test, where you push the car forward, it must mean that it has an extreem anti collision detection system, as it newer hit the wall :-/
    that must be worth at least 6 stars

    I wouldn't be surprised to see an aftermarket hitch available eventually. It didn't take long for one to be made for the Leaf, so it's possible one will appear for the S.
