    This is definitely not the best video I have ever taken. I'm thinking I recorded the car around 9:30 or 10PM ( may have been later ) on September 28 2013. It was shot from the Marriott Hotel directly across from the parking garage that houses the Superchargers.

    When I saw the car pulling out - I was positive it was an S - so I rushed to get my video camera. But looking at the video now I'm really not sure it is. If it gets a thumps up - it would have been my third S spotted in one day in that area. Definitely have 2 confirmed and recorded on that day.

    That is a WebM video = older browsers may need a plug-in to view the content.

    My best guess (with this poor video) is that it is not a MS.
    reasons?
    1. front license plate is mounted too low for normal plate location (although mine is mounted low)
    2. shape of headlights are close but I think they are different.
    3. no marker light on front fender

    Thanks for the reply - yes low light on that camera bites. And I had no time to get setup.

    From what I saw when it pulled out of the garage - it looked like an S - but I could be mistaken.
    Wouldn't have bothered running for camera if I had thought otherwise.

    This video definitely leaves nothing to question.

    But that wasn't low light.:smile:

    Same city - definitely a Model S.
