    I like to buy diecast 1:18 scale models of all the cars I've ever owned or dreamt about and the Roadster is on the top of my list at the moment. However, I can't seem to find a single 1:18 out there o_O The Tesla store have none for sale; only MS. I've seen a number of 1:43 scale models on eBay but nothing larger. The Max Tech RC car just doesn't do it for me either as it just looks "off". I'm not opposed to buying a plastic dealer promo model but those are often unobtainium grade. They do, in fact, exist as evidenced by the photo @doug posted here from someone's Flickr stream of a Tesla Ride & Lunch event back in 2007 so they're out there somewhere! Anyone own any of these or, better yet, have one (or more) to sell?

    The closest I've come is one from "Hot Wheels". They apparently had a "Green Speed" series of 5 cars, with the Roadster #1. "Solar-powered and electric cars that prove you don't need gas to speed past the competition" it says on the back of the package. I think the car is 1:64 scale. 2008 model 1.5.

    Umm, a full sized Roadster isn't considerably larger than most 1:18 scale cars, you could start there. ;)

    I too dream of a world where SOMEONE comes out with a 1:18 of a Roadster in all colors...and imagine they give us little carbon pieces to interchange based on our Roadsters' options. I'd pay $250 for something like this.

    I am clearly dreaming here. :)

    Between the cars and your desktop's background picture, how do get any work done?

    Pamphlet on the left shows a 2.0+ front refresh so the picture must be from 2009+ -ish.
