    Cattledog, I haven't even reserved, wow I guess I will be waiting awhile when I do so in Sept. Which... suits my needs anyway, I will be needing to save up for roughly a year to get a payment that I can enjoy.

    I am excited for you dsm363, pretty awesome to know its coming next month.

    Bardlebee - Why don't you put in for a test drive at Houston, Dallas, and Austin? There's always a chance they'll have extra slots and you might get your first shot that way.

    He'd have to have a reservation. He could always reserve now and take the one time deferment next spring or place a second reservation in fall and cancel first one.

    Well, its not that I don't want to reserve right now, but I have to save up for two months to get the 5k :P I don't just have it on the side unfortunately. I have been very focused on paying off my current car permanently. So, as I said above I will have to wait till Sep to reserve. I am not necessarily super eager to test drive because I know there will be plenty of time for that, the sentiment was more to hang out and talk about Tesla in real life with people that don't think I am crazy.

    EDIT: Obviously everyone's opinions on financing are different, but I am shooting for a 700 or less car payment. I am seriously considering the 300 range after all so I will have to drop 40k or a bit more if I want that. I can "afford" a 2000 dollar car payment, but that's not for me. By afford, I mean not have much money left for other things like putting money away for savings/retirement/stocks and such. Want to get on that boat early.

    What makes me think you can try for a test drive even without a reservation, if you want one, is the sign-up box on the 'Get Amped' homepage for non-reservation holders - might be for when cars are in showrooms, but might be for when a tour site has a spare slot.

    The Get Amped Model S Tour | Tesla Motors

    Doubt they've had any open slots up to now, but eventually they might. Never hurts to try.

    Bardlebee - Why wouldn't you want to test drive if you could get one in Texas now during the August test drives (perhaps Houston showroom will have a car by early fall)?

    Heard on my test drive today that Austin is getting a store and service center. Now just move one big city south, closer, closer, you're getting warmer (literally)...

    This is good news. I won't have to drive 3 hours to see the store now.

    Hey guys, so for those about the receive their cars here in a few months, have you looked into insurance rates for the Model S? What kind of deals have you gotten and what kind of coverage does it outline. I won't have to worry for another year (sigh) but I was curious.

    There are threads on this. Here is one. Seems like between $800 to $1100 per year is typical except for some companies which charge way more.

    Well I was asking because this is pretty variable depending on region of the US. But thanks!
