    I noticed that a couple of people mentioned renting a red Roadster Sport from Hertz LA and then using it for events, and (in some cases) appearances on TV shows.

    When one was brought out to a charge spot unveiling in Malibu, I could see some extra stickers which I assume are related to it being in a rental fleet:

    So, now when I see a red Roadster in a show, I look to see if it has those extra stickers.

    Here was a photo from a Roadster gathering before the Model X unveiling:

    Here was a Roadster doing drag race duty on Speed TV "Stuntbusters" show:

    I wonder if they put it in the "Green Traveler", "Prestige", "Adrenaline", or "Convertible" category? I have tried all the 'Los Angeles' locations with no luck.

    Not Hertz, and not LA, but this is apparently still active in San Francisco: GetAround.com

    Try to actually click on the Roadster and then make a reservation. You can't actually find one. At least my feeble attempts have not been successful each time I've tried.
