    Jason Calacanis finally received his Signature #16 this week.

    Apparently he had custom interior and exterior upgrades which caused his car to be delivered later than his number would indicate.

    Those keys look different than the one in the manual.

    Jason,

    You are amazing dude. And unbelievably generous ...

    Also, open invitation to any bloggers/podcasters/press who want to go for a ride in Santa Monica. you can ping me any time at jason at mahalo.com.

    Can you tell us more about this quote....

    I’ve seen the early designs of the four door and while I can’t give any specific details I can tell you it looks AMAZING! It’s one of the best looking four door cars I’ve ever seen.

    We have heard a cross between an Aston Martin and Porshe and a few other cars. How is this description and what is your take on its looks. I wish I could be up there with you in the frirst 10 buyers but alas I can not afford a Roadster ( much less 2) to put me in that category. I will just have to wait for them offer it to the public... Any insight would be appreciated :smile:

    Have all of the Roadster Owners seen the Model S or just the ones that have expressed an interest in buying it ?

    I can attest that not all Roadster Owners have gotten to see the Model S design.

    Yes, Jason mentions his pod cast that he was shown the Model S drawings because he is a friend of Elon Musk - not just because he is an owner.

    He mentioned a special paint protectant on the TWIT podcast.

    The orange is not a custom color.
