Diesel??

Does anyone know how much the diesel model is going to be, I have heard they are going to start to sell this model to the public. Also, is there a conversion kit for gasoline to diesel?

Look like they are already working on an 08 version as well.

And... I think I'm off on that price.. MSRP was expected to be around $19,000
