Two astute drivers catch the Tesla Model X pulling a cargo trailer, and opening and closing one of its falcon wing doors.

Since learning that deliveries of the Model X from Tesla Motors would now be delayed until sometime next summer, speculation has focused on the rear doors of the electric SUV as the likely source of the problem. We think this is a pretty good assumption considering that CEO Elon Musk said as much himself.

Earlier this month at Tesla's Los Angeles Design Center, we got a preview of what's next for the Silicon Valley-based EV company. It's called the Model X and, as its successive name would suggest, X is an evolution of S, sharing about 60% of its content with Model S.


We're just a few hours away from the Tesla Model X reveal, and we've gotten one last teaser image to tide us over. The SUV's "falcon" doors are a bit more noticeable here than last time, and since people tweaked the photo in editing software last time, the company added a secret message to the image that we're added after the jump. We'll bring you photos and details from the reveal in a little bit, but you can also watch it online here starting at 8 p.m. PST (11 Eastern).

If you've been closely following the story of the soon-to-be-revealed Tesla Model X, you are likely aware that the all-electric crossover is said to be quicker than a Porsche 911, offer more interior space than an Audi Q7 and come with all-wheel drive (at least as an option). Also, if the teaser image is any indication, it should be pretty damn sexy.
