      Welcome Marcello do Brazil & bom dia!! ;)

      Possibly 4Q although depending on how flexible you want to be relative to the location, 1Q18 may be an even surer bet, IMHO...

        Thank you, Michael for your quickly answer. But I don't know what is 4Q, 1Q18, IMHO. What's the meaning? Sorry about that!

        I'm going to New York next month.

        Thanks mate! Obrigado!

        4Q means fourth quarter of the year (October, November, December).

        1Q18 means first quarter of 2018 (January, February, March).

          You are welcome! Wow, New York?! I am afraid it is not the optimal location nor timing if the main purpose of your trip was to be able to go for a test drive. As I said, San Francisco in November/December/January would be a better bet. I'd hate to see you disappointed although you've got some great shows on Broadway all year long! ;)
          Yep! And isn't it wonderful that this one of those things that it is valid (almost) everywhere in the world?! :D

          Yep, thanks for your atenction. This is not valid in Brazil, maybe just in North America... anyway......


          I must to drive Model 3, even if it is a little bit, because I'm automotive journalist and my edictor told me to write about Model 3. I work to the biggest Brazilian car magazine (Quatro Rodas). Thank you guys!

            Then definitely go to CA!! Why don't you contact T≡SLA directly with these credentials and make a specific appointment ? As a accredited journalist, you are likely to get preferential access...
            You saw this, right?



            By the way, is Quatro Rodas in any way affiliated with Italy's Quattroruote?! ;)

            Thanks everyone, Obrigado! Quatro Rodas is as traditional magazine in Brazil as Quattrorute is in Italy, but we are diferent company's .

            I will try contac Tesla to ask them if they can lend me a M3. O can go to LA because after NY I go to Sydney, Australia with conection flight in LA. I can try change my ticket to stay more time in LA and drive Model 3 there.

            See you guys

              Hey, excellent plan to make layover in LA.

              As to topic title. I got a call from Tesla Calif. yesterday trying to set me up with an S/X test drive. I asked about 3s in stores, and she told me "in a couple of months". YMMV.

              Victoria is on west coast of NA at the southern tip of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. We are WNW of Seattle.

              Closest Tesla outlet is in Vancouver BC. The Tesla rep did not have any info about when demos might happen here. :(

              Yes, Victoria, I will try do that. But same thing happened with me. Yesterday I got a call from Tesla New York and them ivited me to do a test drive S/X models. I asked him about Model 3 and he told me "in a few months after stabilize production".

              If someone has any idea what can I do just for a drive a little bit and shoot some pictures, please, let me know. I can fly to anywhere in USA just to drive it.

              Thanks, mates!

              Like I said, you've got to contact T≡SLA in Palo Alto and a plan a trip to Californ.i.a!!
              Best would be to try to have your layover in San Fran!
              My 5 cents...

              Glad I checked... did not remember you were down under yet was tempted to make a stupid joke... about the 'couple of months' !

              Anyways, so T≡SLA in CA called you up in BC?! Wow. Thats amazing!
              Still a bit skeptical about the couple of months tho'... Of course that would be great for ya, so let's hope for the best!
              I don't expect to see Model 3s in EU T≡SLA Stores before late 1Q, possibly 2Q18 now.
              So thrilled I was in San Francisco last week!!

                  Well, I did go to a Tesla showroom in Long Island, NY to have a chat regarding CPO MS and he was asking me about the M3 and if I made a reservation since that is a better deal than a CPO. He was mentioning that a few employees including himself have ordered their car already and should be delivered within a couple of weeks. So, I guess they're hitting the east coast for deliveries. We just might see some cars roaming around rather than all the West Coast employees getting all the fun.

                  He did also mention that he will email me when the cars are here and they are going to showcase those cars. I asked him about a test drive, but he said no (naturally), but we can sit and have a look around and get a feel of the car. So I'm very excited to finally see the car in person. :)

                  Edit: when I went was 9/17/17 (Sunday)
