    In 2009, with Model S reservation #862 in hand, I had the opportunity to test drive a Roaster in Los Angeles, never dreaming that I would own one. Here are some pictures from an early Tesla Motors show room with Roadster display and motor in Dec 2009. DSC_0055.small.jpg DSC_0054.cropped.jpg DSC_0035.small.jpg DSC_0032.small.jpg

    @TEG nice collection! And to me the Roadster exterior design looks as fresh and modern today as it did a decade ago. The interior, on the other hand, looks dated. But I don't care. ;)

    @ViviV is the building interior shown in the photo you posted the Santa Monica showroom?

    @ecarfan I think so. I recall test driving on a boulevard along a park. Here is a picture of the navigation screen at the Tesla Showroom. Can you tell where it is?

    Yes. That location is steps away from the intersection of the 405 and Santa Monica Blvd.

    @TEG, seeing those photos of the Very Orange Roadster with full carbon fiber and black wheels reminds me of just how awesome that combination looks! Adding to my future wish list...

    And still open as a service center today... though most of the volume was sent down to Centinela.

    I second this. Very Orange has to be the only color that's caught up to E-Blue in my obsession / wish list. I NEVER get sick of looking at fully optioned cars in that color.
