    I suppose if he had built a rotating stage for it in his front yard that would make it difficult to charge. Still ...

    Great news. There's definitely no Photoshop involved this time, right? ;)

    Seriously - Martin, you've been very patient over this, so I hope you now get many years of pleasure from the car now.

    Beautiful. I'm jealous, though my EV will still take the Tesla in the mud and water :biggrin:

    Have we finally established that it is P2? Need a shot of the VIN.

    I'm guessing your weekends have been something like: Out for a spin -> recharge/post photos online -> Out for a spin -> recharge/post photos online -> Sleep -> Out for a spin -> recharge/post photos online -> Out for a spin -> recharge/post photos online... etc.

    Really nice to see too.

    David,

    thanks for the pictures! The car looks great, and it's also good to see Martin with a smile on his face again.

    I particularly enjoyed the shot of the interior taken from above the trunk... Did you hire a crane? :smile:

    All the best,

    Chris H.

    I've already posted on Martins blog, but I can always congratulate him here as well with a lovely car. Really curious how someone that knows the car as good as Martin does thinks of it as a car he is using not testing.
