Prospective buyers of Tesla’s coming Model X SUV can go online Tuesday and pick out their color and options for their cars, which should be arriving at the end of September, Automotive News is reporting.

The online configurator popped up Monday night for potential buyers and forum users started posting pictures of their cars online. The pictures are the first from the automaker before its official reveal.

The interior pictures detail seating for seven adults and the Model X’s falcon doors that will reportedly sport sensors that keep passengers from getting out hitting the doors on low garages.

According to the Automotive News report, the Model X Signature series will start at $132,000 and can be configured with Tesla’s “Ludicrous Speed” update that’ll boost performance.

A standard Model X can also get the “Ludicrous Speed” update, but buyers would have to opt first for the performance package and then “Ludicrous Speed” beyond that.

Other features on the Model X include the option to have the car park itself, leather seating, heated and ventilated seats and the ability to return your federal rebate satellite radio.

    ANY Tesla autos should not/never be subsidized. If the buyer wants to do his/her thing in helping the environment, then let them buy it themselves WITHOUT the help of tax subsidies which are taken from other taxpayers' tax dollars! Those that Can afford a Tesla does Not need to be subsidized by others!

      GM/Ford/FCA/Tesla/Walmart should never be subsidized. If a company wants to build a factory or store to provide jobs, let them build it themselves WITHOUT the help of tax subsidies. Companies that can afford to build factories do not need to be subsidized by others!

    Cool lookin' car. Faster than any other vehicle of its type. Wickedly expensive. So, it's an exotic SUV/SAV/CUV. I'm as interested in this as I am in a BMW M SUV. Also as likely to buy it.
