While everybody thought that Tesla would not be touching the Model S in any way, at least for a few years, the CEO and founder of the company, Elon Musk has other plans… He spoke during a recent meeting to discuss the company’s third quarter financial results, where he also let slip a little bit more information.

He said: “There are a few other variants of the Model S that we'll come out with next year that I think are going to be pretty exciting, in addition to, of course, really getting into the Model X and starting the initial design work of the 3rd generation mass market vehicle.

The part about the Model X was known and predictable, but the “other variants” of the Model S have gotten our imagination going. An entry-level version may be what they have in store, which will feature the smallest battery pack available, but do away with leather, the 17-inch touch screen and other useless luxuries that some people just wouldn’t want.

Things could go as far as them making an estate version of the car, as Fisker have done by taking the Karma and turning it into the Surf. We hope to have more details soon, because the Model S is a unique and very interesting car about which we want to know all there is to.
