    For those that missed the reference, the sale listing says engine type = ethanol. I assume that they didn't haven an "electric" option so someone picked that as "other than gasoline".

    I'm pretty sure that these are Tesla Motors stock that Jay McCormack (Tesla Aus Sales Mgr) has ordered to keep them going until Model S in 2013!
    There are currently 5 vehicles for sale on carsales.com.au and it looks like he is still taking orders for new cars.
    In Australia there are no rules preventing Tesla Motors taking out a dealer license.
    The one featured here is Jay's demo that he has been using for test drives and events, I'm pretty sure I recognize the plate.

    Left hand steering though...? Surely they must still be making right-hand steering?

    They are all right hand steering, I think they are using some stock photos not always photos of the actual cars.
    The license plate mentioned matches the Roadster featured in pictures on the Australian Tesla store page.
    This car is right hand steering.
