    Similar to the the thread in October 2011, I'll be posting photos here (only difference I'll keep placeholders on the first page so I can add all photos on the first page, meaning one doesn't have to search through pages of comments (and that one can comment more freely).

    The blue Model S often looks almost black... except when the light comes from the "right" angle...

    Not completely sure if this is Elon's car, with custom Alcantara on top of the dash...

    Not done yet. I'm always funneling them through cropping&editing, which I'll do over the next few weeks, but I'd like to post each as it becomes ready.

    Norbert, are you planning on getting the White Performance version? I'm torn between the Black and Pearl White. I'm planning on getting the Performance version. However, if I get the Black I might get the chrome wheels, but I think the Carbon Gray wheels will really make the White pop.

    I have a suggestion: how about a general PRODUCTION model S on the road thread? I know there is one, but it is full of Betas etc.. I think it would be nice to have one page filled with production shots only.

    Yes. Great photo. What camera setup are you using?

    Yes, although it depends on a number of things including how investments evolve. I haven't decided yet, and it still keeps changing, but my current favorite is Pearl White Performance with either silver or carbon gray wheels (the wheel preference changes almost on a daily basis), gray leather and cf accents/dash. Apparently I have a tendency to pick the most expensive version, even though it's way above my usual price class altogether. ;)

    Thanks, more of a similar kind are coming. Camera is still 5d mk1 as last October, but I'm sure I 'll get a new one this year. (Edit: with 24-105 mm lens, I can post the actual focus length tonight).

    Nice. You'll love the 5D Mark III. I think it will be a huge upgrade from the Mark I. The low light performance is amazing. Great photo.

    Love the pictures. I was able to take some during the Fremont event last week (6/24). Not sure how to post them.

    Thanks! You are welcome to post them in this thread. Or, as many did, in the Get-Amped-Tour thread for your location, such as this, see posts from the 23rd, 24th, etc : Get Amped Tour: Fremont, 6/23-24

    When you have new post open, there is a small icon, with a tree in a frame, on top. Clicking it allows you to choose a pic from you local hard disk or a URL, to add to your post.
