As part of the big coming-out weekend for the Tesla Model S, our friends at Autoblog got to spend some time learning about the current-version beta prototype that Tesla is showing off to the media and prospective owners who have put down $5,000 deposits on the all-electric sedan. How much time? Not much (like five minutes), but the entire event was enough to learn plenty about the car, the way Tesla is making excellent progress on getting the NUMMI plant ready for Model S production and the huge infotainment touchscreen. If you just want the short version, it's that this is seriously happening. If you want the long version (with video) read all about it here.
