    I plan to put my Model S in some local shows, just to show what a ground up electric car is capable of being to try to change people's minds. Hopefully it'll be ready in time for the show

    Yes, I am planning on that. I would love to spread the word about Tesla. It could also attract some customers because the area that one of my local shows is in, is particularly wealthy. I would be willing to take a few people for a quick drive around town to see what the performance is like.

    Like many Roadster owners I've taken part in plenty of EV and/or "green" events. (And tend to see the same Volt and Leaf owners at said events). It's all helped towards getting charge stations installed. I'm pretty certain that those invites are going to keep coming once I get my Model S and I'll be happy to keep spreading the word.

    Yes, your local EV Club would be a good source for information about where you could show your new Model S.

    Not shows, but plan on doing cruises and rallies with the other exotics/performance cars... Assuming the performance S can hang.

    I smell a Tesla track day in our future.

    I live in Little Italy and we have an Auto Show with mostly Italian cars ..... but the Performance S would look right at home :)

    So many of my neighbors are reservation holders, the Model S is likely to be one of the more prevalent cars in the neighborhood. I'd feel pretty silly putting mine in a local show, unless there were a section dedicated to a whole fleet of Teslas.

    That's right. SJ is going to be Model S central.
