    "Trophy car"
    It would have been better for the planet if it was actually used rather than taking 4 years of battery decay for nothing.

    Grumble grumble.

    A lot of that came from the LA store who saw that it needed miles so employees drove it for a few weeks..

    Stop yer grumbling. :rolleyes:

    GC's purchase of a Roadster was in every article about the car and company for years. Branding magic.

    Shallow praise IMO.

    Maybe he was driving his Tango instead.

    Apparently GC is a Ferrari collector. Tesla got a lot of great mileage out of him. Remember he has to give permission for them to use his name. They were nobody(like Tango) when they sold him their eight car so the attachment of a high profile celebrity is a huge thing for sales, whether you and Loyd think it has merit or not.
