Gallery: NAIAS 2013: Tesla Brings Gullwing Model X to the Detroit Auto ...

Tesla brought its newest model, the funky all-electric Model X, to this week's 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and Inhabitat is here to bring you the exclusive pics. The white Model X pictured here features carbon fiber-spoked wheels plus an updated interior of black and white contrasting colors, plus the always-awesome gullwing doors. We love that the Model X includes the same touch screen interface as the Model S, except this one is mounted differently in a "hovering" fashion instead of being flush with the cockpit surface.

In true Tesla fashion, this Model X is an updated design prototype, which means there is still a long road ahead before we see a beta version or anything approaching a production car. Ever since test-driving Elon Musk’s own original Tesla Roadster in Silicon Valley last year, we have been huge fans of this upstart electric car company. They have had their fair share of bumps along the road, especially in delivering cars in a timely manner, but we look forward to every new model with excitement, and were happy to see MotorTrend name the Tesla Model S their 2013 Car of the Year. Expect (or hope?) to see this car out as a 2015 model.
