Oh, I know they're real, but Tesla has pushed back the Model X a couple of times now (and it's possible they may do so again), and the "affordable" car (I think it's the Model 3) is perennially coming out "next year." From what I've seen and heard in the auto industry, a more realistic assesment is that the Model 3 is at least a couple of years away at best.

Basically, Elon Musk has a habit of overpromising.
