Tesla showed off the Model X, which is said to blend the qualities of a sport utility vehicle and a minivan in an all-electric car that's targeted to hit the streets in 2014. The car's 'falcon wing' doors use a hinge between the glass roof panel and the side, allowing them to open up but not out. (Source: Tesla Motors)

NO RATINGS
These are great Chuck. Thanks. I wish I could have been there myself. We always see these amazing concept cars. I always wonder why we never see them come to production, or very few. And who gets to keep those concept cars?

 

You mentioned a car with a 17-in. display. Like drivers don't have enough to be distracted by?
