Remember that time back in October
when we told you that the all-electric crossover from Tesla
, the Model X
, would be revealed ahead of the 2012 Detroit Auto Show
? Well, scratch that. That information was, apparently, inaccurate. Dubitable. Counterfactual even. Instead, it seems that February 9th marks the day the X is to be spotted.
The news comes courtesy of the
enthusiasts over at the Tesla Motor Club forum
. A member read in a recent copy of Barclays Capital research report that the Tesla's design studio in LA would be the setting for the Model X reveal. We contacted Tesla to confirm, and were told that, "Yes, there will be a February 9th Model X event."
The upcoming reveal won't have been its first, however. The vehicle was shown to some institutional investor types just before Christmas and, going by a handful of tweets that went out across the internetz shortly thereafter, they were impressed. Quicker than a Porsche 911 and roomier than an Audi Q7
, they say. Throw in all-wheel drive
and this could get pretty interesting.
