Tesla's been showing off its Silicon Valley-bred saloon for months now, from the touchscreen-laden console
to the mechanical bits beneath its shapely skin
. We even got a spread of a road going Model S last month
, and this October a lucky few will get to cruise in some beta test cars at Tesla's factory in Fremont. These beta versions are "over ninety percent" of what the production Model S will be, and after the ride, the chosen get to tour Tesla's manufacturing facility. We plan on being there when the new EV is put through its paces, so stay tuned for our impressions of the Model S this autumn.
