    That is a picture of a French Roadster. U.S. parts dept may not have those... Only in Europe.

    That's a provisional Monaco license tag. The "WW" indicates it's a temporary tag and the "MC" is for the Principality of Monaco, not France.

    Seems like Monaco is almost the same as France in some regards...
    Anyways, here is another one with plates like that:

    That one looks photoshopped and I have a feeling that the industrial complex in the background may be in Germany. Yes, the temp tag can be renewed but only one time and there's a prohibition on French nationals living in France preventing them from doing things like registering their cars in Monaco for tax reasons (which would be the only motivation). There are standard homologation laws which pretty much mean that you can buy a car in any EU country and register it in another one (except the UK which has it's own rules and is the only European country to drive on the left and to use miles as a measurement standard).

    But we're going off topic here.....

    I had researched it before and concluded it was Petroquímica de Constantí in Spain...

    Confirmation of Spain from Tesla Facebook

    Same Roadster in Monaco:
    Tesla Motors Roadster Sport 2.5 -

    I think Monaco (being so small) tends to get vehicles designed for France.
    Does anyone know if French Roadsters get the same amber rear turn signals as the one we saw that was registered in Monaco?

    Amber Turn Signal LEDs

    Well, after careful research with a socket wrench the red rear turn signal lights on the Roadster 2.5 are LED units and could be easily swopped out foramber.Just need to get TM or the supplier to send them out. Easy ... No??

    Yea I know ...... probably not so easy but if anybody has a source for a pair of amber LEDs for rear turn signals please pass it on.



    Thanks

    Here was an alternate version where they removed the smoke and provisional license plate:
