In other Model S news, Tesla has revealed what's going to be so special about the area between the front seats
, a space Tesla is calling the "Opportunity Console." Based on buyer preferences, this customizable space should one day be able to be outfitted with "compartments, shelves or phone holders to make this area more organized." Tesla will reveal prototypes of the consoles this weekend and will listen to customer input on how the final versions develop.
