    It would be very interesting to know how many cars Tesla sells in this way, but I'm not holding my breath. It's surely no coincidence that all of these "available" cars are the high-end loaded performance models. That's how you spell -high margin-.

    Great news for a limited few, but a very limited few. It's always good to have options, of course, but considering the uniqueness of the Model S and price, I'm guessing 99% of the potential owners can be patient and would prefer to wait to get the specific vehicle options the owner really wants. But again, for a select few, great news.

    At home, my instructions before getting one are simple: sell the boat "we never use" and the motorcycle and then the Model S is approved... The motorcycle is getting sold this year, but unbeknownst to my wife, simply for a new one. Hey, I've got until 2015 to come up with Tesla Model S (or another EV, i3?) money.
