    What is that CF plate above? Something to signify which Founders' Series number it is?

    Did all the VP's get them or just the later ones?

    Just the later VP's, starting with 10 or 11.

    Meant to post this a while ago, but it's worth pointing out that these finally made it in the cars.

    So who has the attention span, time and acumen to make a list of all the signatures ??? (Or is a separate list provided already to the Roadster owner?)
    I found Zak Edson & Marty Taft in about 30 seconds ...

    I like that... I wonder if the Model S signature buyers will get something similar

    I would think there is a different management style in place now.

    Not sure what that means? Regardless who owns or runs things now, couldn't we get an engraved plate with the founders or investor's signatures?

    I agree. At least for the Signature series, maybe it could at least come with something signed by Elon Musk or something. 2000 signatures over 2 years shouldn't be too tough for 1 person.

    I think that he meant that the all inclusive design process seems to have faded with time and the change of management. It sort of seems to be a compnay that is all about ME with one me in particular. Not the general sense from the company but just one individual. I am not sure I agree but I think that is what was meant.

    I missed the beginning of the thread, but were these individually signed? I'd be happy with an engraved plate that's chiseled from a template

    Just like a collector's plate from a Disneyland gift shop.

    Yeah. Didn't mean to imply that sorry. Just thought something like that would be cool. A special machine-done plaque in the car would be just as cool.

    Exactly.. they clearly have the template, so just churn some out and put it somewhere in the Model S cabin

    "Signature 250" ??? ... I never even heard of that series. Any pointers to history on this?

    That was the Signature Series for EU spec cars (Roadster 2.0, 2010MY). The first 250 of that VIN series.
