Well after quite a bit of talk, and quite a bit of waiting...the Tesla Model S is being unveiled today at the company's LA showroom. Earlier today it would seem Digg's founder Kevin Rose leaked photos of the car but Tesla issued him a take down notice as the images were in fact real. I guess they didn't want to spoil the surprise.
In any case, the car is being unveiled today. Motor Trend published this photo:
And according to Jason Calacani's Twitter...(as reported by Tech Crunch):
