    So I just saw a commercial for the new 2016 Audi A3.......

    The closing shot is a totally Black screen......then appearing in white lettering are 2 words:
    "Pencils Down"

    I thought Wow........

    A Shot across the Bow??? (I think so).

    Probably just a coincidence. Speaking of which, we're getting close to Tesla supposedly doing that. They may be running a couple of weeks behind so maybe mid-July. I'll have to poke Elon and see if he'll confirm it...

    @TrevP,

    That's why it struck me so....it's right in line (close enough) to Elons "proposed deadline" as outlined in his speech where he said exactly "Pencils Down" for design I believe so they can get suppliers lined up and tooling complete.

    I calculate July 15th as the approximate date for "pencils down."
