HEPA filter
Daniel, 

In fact, the HEPA filter is something that I find really useful and necessary for those of us who prefer healthy environments free from pollution, bacteria, viruses, and everything else in the air which can cause health issues. I think the HEPA filter is a great and thoughtful add to the car. Smart homes have such filters as well.

Re: Falcon Wing Doors
I really like this feature where the battery acts as a safety mechanism that limits the car's ability to flip over. But the HEPA filter? That seems a bit unecessary. I guess the people buying these cars don't car about cost. Still, I don't see this filter being anything more than a luxury item that's not really needed.

opening system
I'm not a big fan of this opening system. I prefer opening doors normally.

Falcon Wings too slow?
One complaint I've heard about this car is that the doors are too slow to open and close, making for a bit of a frustrating experience for thos waiting to enter. Has anyone else seen much reporting of this?

Perhaps that's half the reason they're designed to start opening before you get there, so you don't have to stand around like an idiot waiting to get in.

Re: Tesla Model X
Jeeze, sounds luxurious. Probably quite a bit beyond my means, but cool nevertheless. It certainly shows value on how the electric model behooves existing car designsin terms of a) those safety features and b) the added conveniences (front trunk sounds nice). Making it tip-top of the line is a smart PR move from Musk to make sure we don't hear too much backtalk from SUV enthusiasts. I wonder where this fits into Tesla's ongoing legal troubles getting their cars to market in many places - have they made any concessions on that front with the Model X?

Re: Falcon Wing Doors
I would love to see this on a drag race with the other leading cars such as Lamborghini, Bugatti. The Tesla Model S overtook Lamborghini Gallardo in the first few seconds on track.

Re: Falcon Wing Doors
Tesla Model X will change the impression we have on electric cars. The Model S did the same with a stunning long range drive and an amazing torque.
