    Maybe you see their replacement Model S in the background?

    Roblab got custom paint, chocolate brown i believe. And ggr did a custom pinkish colour.
    It was a 12k option and was for a limited time only.

    I think he parked his car at a Drive Event and the brown one is the test drive vehicle -

    Aha! The rumored "hershey bar." I remember now...

    And thanks ggr. I'm not even getting mine for 2 more weeks or so and my daughter has already explained that it is not even in the same league as yours...

    This is my roadster, and yes TEG, I don't visit much. For anyone who is interested in the details of the pictures and the sale offer:

    The picture was taken at the Cherry Hills Auto Show a couple weeks ago. I had the car detailed for the show, and it was a cloudy morning with good flat light. So it was the best the car was going to look since, well, before I got it - it was delivered in a blizzard in early '11.

    The Model S sat between my Roadster and one of the 2 Elises at the show; but the Model S was far more popular. But this is not my Model S: it's from the Park Meadows' Showroom. We had a Tesla rep bring it to the show, which was well worth the $20 entry fee to them IMO.

    It's still for sale, but I've let the eBay listing die. I've had 4 inquiries, but they all came in after the listing ended. If I can substantially beat the trade in quote Tesla gave me (plus the 7% or so sales tax reduction it brings), I'll sell it. Then I have to find something to drive until my Silver Model S Perf shows up.

    Tesla's quote says they will sell my car for $98.2K, and gives a "Private Sale Value Estimate" of $93.3K.
