Tesla Model 3 Unveiling Guest List Personally Selected By CEO Elon Musk + Immediate Team

It seems that the Model X unveiling kerfuffle last year involving CEO Elon Musk and a rather touchy journalist has led to Musk being more selective about who will be attending the Model 3 unveiling (or maybe not) — as the CEO has apparently personally (with aid from his “immediate team”) put together the guest list for the upcoming event.

Elon Musk TED Talk

Granted, maybe there’s not actually any connection between this news and the internet drama following the Model X unveiling. But it does seem to be curious, doesn’t it? On that note, the commenter “calisnow” on the Tesla Motors Club forum recently posted this:

This is interesting – I’ve ordered two Teslas, live in L.A., and cannot get a ticket to the Model 3 unveiling March 31 in my own town. I’m not upset – don’t misread the post. But getting “denied” only makes me think more than ever that something is up – something big is going to be revealed that we haven’t heard of yet.
Autopilot 2.0 hardware perhaps?
OR – perhaps Elon simply wants to make sure no cranky types like that journalist who got “banned” from buying a Tesla show up to his party?
Either way – this exclusivity is certainly a shift from 2014 when I easily got into the D event having not even ordered a Tesla yet!
I sent an e-mail to my sales rep last night asking for a couple tickets. This is the response I got today:

“Hey ____,
I am afraid I have no way of getting you tickets to this event. From what I was told, it will be a small group of people selected by Elon and his immediate team.
_____ “

Interesting… Of course one can simply watch the Model 3 unveiling online. There’s no real need to be there in person. What we do know is the Model 3 unveiling is set to take place on March 31st, somewhere in or near Los Angeles.
