    Kept hearing about it but first tie I've seen a picture. That is Elon's new car. He copied my paint.

    When I saw your paint, I started wondering how good it would look with the Sport carbon fiber package. Now we know... awesome!

    I plan on more CF as well. I want the wing to also contain a backup camera. Elon is apparently wants the top rear deck to be CF down the middle. It's a custom job. The paint is also slated to go satin which is another thing i asked for Tesla to do -and refused.

    Yeah, I was wondering about that too... But having one car in NorCal and one in SoCal could be handy for someone flying back and forth frequently.

    I used to think that black with red accents was the way to go for "coolness factor", but these days it seems a bit too simplistic and blunt compared to something more sophisticated like the copper+carbon fiber. I have a different, but related idea of what I would do if I ever manage to get a Roadster.
