    You may still have a shot at cancelling the flight tickets courtesy the new DoT regulations that went into effect in January this year:

    Press Release | U.S. Department of Transportation

    passengers will be able to hold a reservation without payment, or cancel a booking without penalty, for 24 hours after the reservation is made, if they make the reservation one week or more prior to a flight’s departure date. In addition, airlines will be required to promptly notify passengers of flight delays of over 30 minutes, as well as flight cancellations and diversions, and they will generally be prohibited from increasing the price of passengers’ ticket after it is bought.
    Policies by airline:

    I hope you get your drive but don't forget there's 8,660 people in front of you and a bunch of them are in FL.

    Yeah, it has to be Menlo, SR or PA HQ. Terrible traffic around both Menlo and SR stores. PA HQ and 280 would be more fun.

    The earlier factory version would be preferred, I'd think, as GeorgeB mentioned that there's a Franz-designed test drive course that takes in some parts of the factory's closed course before getting on city streets and freeways.

    On June 23rd and 24th, we will launch the Get Amped Model S Tour at our own Tesla Factory in Fremont, California. Franz von Holzhausen, our chief designer, has created a great seven to eight minute test drive course that extends beyond the factory to nearby streets. The course offers a variety of experiences that include freeway driving, long sweepers, tight turns, smooth and rough roads, and general urban driving. It’s the perfect way to experience how Model S grips the road and loves to run.

    Have people gotten emails about this already? I'm a reservation holder and haven't received test drive info yet.

    I'll keep you in mind, Bonnie! But, I doubt anyone other than the reservation holder will be invited and/or allowed to drive. You should have left those $5K alone in a Model S reservation when you fell in love with the X in February

    Early next week as per GeorgeB in his blog post.

    We will be sending out our first Sign Up emails for June 23rd and 24th to Reservation Holders early next week. Thereafter, we will send Sign Up emails approximately two to three weeks prior to each tour stop.

    I'm pretty excited as I had already planned on being there that weekend to go sit in a Model S for the first time! Looks like I may get a test ride out of the deal!

    Personally I would rather not test drive at this point, I am already in the non-refundable realm of the Tesla order process. I will wait till my car is delivered to drive the S.
