    I think so too. Actually, I kinda like that fact that the executive of a car company is a little bit awkward on camera. Makes him seem more like a real person...

    After mentioning beer in a comedy bit Colbert was sent a case. Then after mentioning Endive he was sent a large box of Endive leaves. So tonight he asked for a Tesla Model S in blue with 21" rims.

    Who's matte blue car with custom rims was that? ;)

    Picture sourced form TMC?

    Looks like its computer generated to me, not an actual photo of a car... unsure

    It is in fact a real car, owned by a TMC member.

    Look at this thread.

    Note that this original thread was from 2010, so here's the link to that 2010 interview. Kinda ancient now, not very interesting. http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/341483/july-28-2010/elon-musk

    The most recent articles in this thread are about a short clip from the colbert report from a few days ago. Here's the clip to that episode: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/430057/october-29-2013/endive-gift-package. But the Tesla reference only occurs at the end for 5 seconds.

    GUYS, can we stop resurrecting threads from three years ago? It only confuses everyone. This new bit from colbert asking for a Tesla should have had its own thread...
