    Opportunity Console - New Photos, Poll

    This weekend Tesla will be displaying the first prototypes of the "Opportunity Console" elements for us to see. These are not yet finalized, so they're looking for our feedback and suggestions.

    The prototypes we will be showing this weekend are not for sale, but we’re coming to you, our customer, to get your input so we can give you the functionality that is most important to you. After your test drive, let us know what you think, or feel free to leave a comment on the TMC forum.
    Update: Here are the photos:

    There have been a lot of suggestions about what could be done with the area between the two front seats. It was initially designed to be an open area for you to easily store everything from a backpack to a purse, and many people are looking forward to doing exactly that. However, we have received several requests to add compartments, shelves or phone holders to make this area more organized. This seemed like a great opportunity to make Model S customizable to be what YOU WANT it to be. So, we have officially dubbed this area the “Opportunity Console,” and set out to design exactly the type of functional enhancements you have requested.

    This weekend, we will be displaying the first prototypes of our Opportunity Console elements for you to see. These are not yet finalized, so we look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions. The prototypes we will be showing this weekend are not for sale, but are being shown to you, our customers, to get your input so we can focus our effort on functionality that is most important to you. After your test drive, let us know what you think, or feel free to leave a comment on the Tesla Motors Club forum. We’ve created a thread on the forum to gather your input.

    As I said above, many people like the area between the front seats exactly the way it is, so we will continue to offer this area as originally planned. The additional Opportunity Console options are in response to customer requests, and will be made available as soon as we finalize designs based upon your input.
    Anyone who goes this weekend, please add pictures!

    Yeah. Did that make it into the first batch of production vehicles? The perfect place for your sunglasses. I still think they could do much more, but it's a start. Happy that they listened to the complaints and created a quick fix.

    That cubbie under the display is there in the Gigaom video too. Do you think it is going to be a standard feature? Wow, how great if it is! Also the Gigaom video showed rear seat cup holders for an instant. Fantastic! But where? How?

    Perfect! There's a place for the phones and keys now. And, is that cover for the center console area the same wood trim (Obeche here) as chosen for the dash?! Neat idea although it can get scuffed up easily.
