Tesla has been saying that without a $350 million loan from the government, the Model S Sedan will be delayed. Heck, they've been saying since October that the delay will happen. Also in October, Tesla made it clear that the Model S won't be shown to the public until spring 2009, maybe at the Geneva Motor Show. We'd hoped to see it sometime in 2008, but no dice.

Nonetheless, Inside Line today confirmed that we will not be getting a surprise sneak peek of the all-electric sedan at the Detroit Auto Show next month. So, just in case you were making a secret wish to Santa concerning a certain California-based electric automaker, you might want to save your effort and just hope that Tesla survives the economic turmoil to bring us the Model S at all.
