Elon spotted commuting in CA. Odd that P1 still has dealer plates. Also, it looks like the CHMSL isn't working. Though I suppose it's possible the brakes aren't actually on and the taillights are just lit from the headlights being on.

Based on its proximity to San Carlos, I am assuming this is a VP, or even EP? Do we know if this is a production unit?

Additionally: were I to guess what would cause a Tesla to stall, I would assume something involving the firmware (over just running out of juice or something). Any other ideas?

I think I can make out a Founders' Series plate near the rear wheel, so that would mean it's a production car. Hard to know which one since Radiant Red appears to be a popular choice.

I should mention that the spirit of this thread is Roadsters out in the wild. So a car parked at a Tesla store or at the factory, or on display at an auto show, doesn't really count. Also the preference is for pictures not found elsewhere on this site.
