Tesla Motors is just a few days away from handing over Model S key fobs to the first batch of customers. Yes, the company already gave investor and board member Steve Jurvetson and CEO Elon Musk their Founder Series cars, but this time it's for reals.

While we wait to watch the sleek sedans, painted in the ten four colors of the company's current palette Signature series, passed to their new owners – the big event will be broadcast on Tesla's website Friday at 3:30 PDT – we can now see more of what goes into the manufacturing of this truly innovative electric car. We've already watched the massive metal stamping that begins the process, now we can view the whole assembly and paint application operation. Scroll below for three more videos from the Inside Tesla! series.

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.
