that time back in October
when we told you that the all-electric
, 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
design studio in LA would be the setting for the
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.
