Still haven’t seen enough pictures of the Tesla Model X yet? Yeah, me neither. So, to satisfy that apparent addiction, here are some new pictures of the high-tech, all-electric SUV. In particular, it is Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s Model X, and the pics include widely respected music producer Rick Rubin (the notorious beard bro, some people have it, some don’t) and movie director Jon Favreau (Elon’s buddy) admiring it as well.
The new pictures were apparently taken on Malibu Pier in Los Angeles (coming to us courtesy of this person). They show the Model X in all its very conspicuous glory. You can’t help but notice the gawkers staring at the rising falcon door in apparent curiosity or wonderment.
For some background on the people in the photos here, Elon Musk is of course the CEO of Tesla Motors; Rick Rubin is a music producer best known perhaps for being one of the founders of Def Jam Records, and was also responsible to some degree for Johnny Cash’s resurgence in the 1990s and afterwards; and Jon Favreau is the movie director responsible for the recent (very successful) Iron Man movies, amongst others. Humorously, Favreau actually based the personality of his movies’ Tony Stark directly on Elon Musk. (I’d have to say, though, that Musk comes across as a fair bit more likable and less arrogant than the movie character — to my mind, anyways.)
Certainly interesting to see the Model X in a normal, everyday sort of setting. I wonder if I’ll do a double take the first time I see one myself like I did when I saw the Model S for the first time?
