    Nope. And I'm a bit surprised he hasn't tweeted about it. All his latest tweets have been Space X related.

    #1 is red.
    #2 (Elon's) is supposedly some sort of really fancy paint color, 8 layers of black or something.

    But yes, Black.

    I saw him driving a white Roadster in LA. Was told he has many.

    If I were Elon I would have a set of cars in LA near SpaceX and a set of cars near Tesla HQ in the Bay Area.
    So at least 2 Roadsters and 2 Model Ss

    A few months ago Elon tweeted red with black interior, if I'm not mistaken.

    I think that it was up to date for when that was tweeted.

    Since that text refers to the photo, it may have been a prototype he was driving at that time.

    +1. 3 months ago it would have been a Beta prototype he was driving. Promoting Signature Red would make good business sense and Musk is an excellent business man.
