No console, keep it open
Somewhere for bits and bobs
My phone needs a home
Give me somewhere for the 'big-gulp'
Forget seat 5, give me more in the back

Well, I'd be OK with that, though I did like some of the options they proposed. I guess we'll see those once they catch their breath.
This was posted over on the Tesla site today, quoting an email from GeorgeB, regarding Tesla's center console efforts.
Email to George Blankenship his response | Forums | Tesla MotorsI just reviewed options again this morning and gave comments. I really like the way this is going. It is modular and let's [sic] customers decide how much of the space they want to use and not use for additional pieces. I don't have a timeline for these yet, but will let everyone know as soon as we have finalized a direction.

I really like GeorgeB and his responses. I only wish he were able to do a weekly Q&A blog post, cuz no one else is answering any questions and there are a lot of unanswered questions.
Totally looking forward to cell phone dock, but want to keep the open space.

Has anyone who has received their Model S gotten their car with the cubby shelf under the 17" screen installed? If you have gotten your car without it installed is it listed on your "due bill?"
Tesla promised that this little shelf would be standard equipment on all cars so it should be showing up. But so far it is conspicuous by its absence in reports of car recipients. I'm trying to understand what's going on.
In personal interactions (Tesla store and Get Amped) and forum posts, I've seen a consistent pattern where they don't offer it outright as a topic of interest but when someone asks "hey, this one doesn't have the shelf" the response has been a steady "full set of options still being developed, but the shelf will definitely be standard on all customer vehicles."

That post (although very true) did make me LOLCaptain_Zap | September 12, 2012
We made the mistake of renting an economy car in Germany. We had the pedal to the floor the entire time on the Autobahn and we were still being passed as if we were standing still.
One glance in the rear view mirror and there is a barely visible speck (not bacon, a car) on the horizon behind you. By the time you look forward again they were already flying past you in a blur. Surreal.
That is when we figured out the reason why there were no cupholders in our German cars at home.
center console insert (CCI) product I've been developing and will not be able to assess the cubbie until it arrives. I asked when we might get the cubbie and got the same "full set of options still being developed, but the shelf will definitely be standard on all customer vehicles" response. Frustration.
