    From Memphis - Roadster owner (V23) and on the Model S Signature Special List at #173. Configured in May with Signature Red, Performance, White Interior, 21" Silver Wheels, Pano Roof, Carbon Fiber Spoiler, Gloss Wood, and Paint Armor. Anxiously awaiting word on a delivery date while lurking on all the Tesla boards.

    I bought one of the validation prototypes from the company. It has a "V" series VIN.

    I believe it was $99,900. I bought direct from Tesla without waiting in line. It had not been titled, but had 7,200 hard miles doing the press tour. On the plus side, I have a framed copy of the Road and Track article featuring my car! Kind of fun:wink:

    Pretty well. There have been some issues - at first a bunch of little things that I would put down to it being a prototype, more recently a bad battery connection required shipping the car to Chicago for repair. Overall, I would say it is pretty similar to my service experience on my last couple of cars (Jags). I am at about 30,000 miles and probably drive the Roadster about 80% of days and 60% of miles.
