Roadster History Europe/APAC

Hi there,

I am a European-Roadster-owner, some members might know me from german TFF-forum.

As for the EU-VIN's it seems to be even more difficult to find out any information about the vehicles, where was the origin. country of delivery, what happened to them etc.

For the US-Roadsters honoured boardmember TEG is listing them, I try to do that for the EU and APAC- VIN's (beginning with 2SFZRE......).

It seems to be quite difficult. As up to the 300's I was able to reconstruct almost all VIN's incl. country of destination, after that there's the odd Roadster here and there in Germany (some I know from PEM-upgrades) and some in Switzerland/Austria.

So if there's any European / APAC Roadster-owners around here willing to share the following information about their Roadster(s):

1. complete VIN
2. 2.0 or 2.5
3. 1st. country of delivery
4. colour (inside/outside) - any extras etc.
5. country and maybe city where it's located now
6. who wants - the owner (even TMC-alias is ok)
7. ESS 2.0 or 3.0
8. alive or dead
9. and a photo (one is enough)


It would be great to find as many as possible, right now I have less then 200 from 1013 made listed :(

...so where's all the Signature250's, the final 4's etc.etc. ?

I won't give any information out of this to any third party without allowance of the owner, this will be a private list but on demand I will make certain infos available to members of this board (and TFF), but not without asking.
Maybe one day it will help us all with certain informations about a single EU/APAC-Roadster ?

Awaiting your PM, kind regards from Germany !

I removed city and owner info from my list before posting above.

I also have pictures of many of those cars. If there is a particular roadster of interest, I can check to see if I have a picture of it.

While we are at it, 2006 "EP" (Engineering/Eval Prototypes) were made in UK, and (mostly) sent to USA:

SFZRE11B963E00001 EP1 Obsidian Black / Black
SFZRE11B063E00002 EP2 Radiant Red (repaint from "Chilli Red")
SFZRE11B263E00003 EP3 Glacier Blue? UK: "227 CL" - FMVSS crash tested 7/13/2006
SFZRE11B463E00004 EP4 Very Orange - 11/17/2006
SFZRE11B663E00005 EP5 Brilliant Yellow
SFZRE11B863E00006 EP6 Non standard "Nightfall" dark blue (repaint?)
SFZRE11BX63E00007 EP7
SFZRE11B163E00008 EP8
SFZRE11B363E00009 EP9 Electric Blue
SFZRE11BX63E00010 EP10 Thunder Gray

I think those were all decommissioned after testing.

2007 "VP" (Validation Prototypes) VP1-VP14 were also made in UK.

SFZRE11B773V00001 VP1 Signature Green
SFZRE11B973V00002 VP2
SFZRE11B073V00003 VP3 Racing Green / black (Later w/Yellow Hood (JACB)) 2008 MFG
SFZRE11B273V00004 VP4 Arctic White / black+orange (Brussels)
SFZRE11B473V00005 VP5 Jet Black / gray (Seen at Goodwood)
SFZRE11B673V00006 VP6 "A057-BHW" Lotus Factory - Very Orange - First Reg Sep 2007
SFZRE11B873V00007 VP7 Very Orange ?
SFZRE11BX73V00008 VP8
SFZRE11B173V00009 VP9 Electric Blue / black
SFZRE11B873V00010 VP10 Sterling Silver / black Assembled 11 Mar, 2008 Hethel, UK - 2.5look now
SFZRE11BX73V00011 VP11 Thunder Gray / microfiber
SFZRE11B173V00012 VP12 Black / saddle (UK) (LeMans, France) /FirstReg:2-8-2008
SFZRE11B373V00013 VP13 Very Orange
SFZRE11B573V00014 VP14 Green - (Gold wheels)

Most of those ended up in USA. Most are decommissioned, I think. Maybe a few still in service.

2008 VP16-VP18 made in UK:

SFZRE11B283900016 VP16 Glacier Blue/cream (MFG 12 Feb, 2008)
SFZRE11B483900017 VP17 Radiant Red+Mirofiber+CarbonFiber
SFZRE11B683900018 VP18 Radiant Red (Converted to Brabus - painted white) Switzerland / Reg 5-26-2008 -> Norway
They then started to "make" some VPs in USA instead of UK. VP19 was a USA "made" car.
SFZRE11B483900020 VP20 UK"AU58-AJY" Electric Blue (Crashed in France?) /Reg 9-10-2008
VP21-VP33 USA "made". (Some went to Europe)

Founders' 1-27 considered "made in UK". VINs omitted here.
USA bound "Signature 100" cars 1-11 "made in UK". VINs omitted here.

Some USA made cars got "gray market" exported into Europe.
So, some Roadsters were seen in Europe before official launch in 2010.
For instance,
USA#24 went to Norway
USA#86 went to Norway, then Dubai
USA#119 went to Norway
USA#166 went to Norway
USA#167 went to Germany
USA#257 went to Norway
USA#365 went to Denmark
USA#445 went to Norway
USA#476 went to Norway
USA#524 ended up in Hungary
USA#560 ended up in Denmark
USA#644 went to Switzerland
USA#663 ended up in Norway
USA#678 ended up in Dubai
USA#841 & USA#842 went to Australia
USA#927 ended up in Norway
USA#1242 went to Sweden
( Full VINs omitted )

Does "decommissioned" mean "scrapped" or just not driven any more? I saw EP2 on display at Menlo Park not long before that site was closed.

And I thought Mark Jensen had a white VP car, but perhaps it was a non-VP demo car.
The part you mentioned was the "EP" section, not "VPs". Yes, I think some VPs are still being used.

I have not heard of any EP sightings in a while. I suspect they may be gone or neglected in some back warehouse somewhere.
They were not "production grade" vehicles, and not meant to be kept on the road after testing was done.
Yeah, I don't know the fate of those EPs now. Haven't noticed any sightings in a while.
I think JB had been driving yellow EP5 quite a bit for a while, but perhaps no longer.
Some Tesla marketing from 2012 for the last batch of EMEA Roadsters:

• Exclusive encore colors - Cosmic Black, Galactic Gray and Magma Orange - with new, complimentary interior colors
• A rear snow cover and improved motor and inverter systems for even better performance in snow and ice
• Improved air conditioning for driver comfort in the hottest months
• Xenon headlamps ideal for rural night driving
• Enhanced front windscreen seals to make the cabin even quieter
• Two new Mobile Connectors available for charging in Europe and Japan
• The Tesla IEC Type 2 (Mennekes) Mobile Connector enables charging from Type 2 stations and outlets, the most common EV charging infrastructure in Europe
• The J1772 Mobile Connector enables charging from a developing infrastructure of public J1772 charge stations in Japan

Some pictures of the first "official" Roadster for Europe, 2010 EU VIN 1:




EU #1 was seen racing at various "Zero Rally" events, as well as Goodwood festival of speed.

I wish I knew the VINs of the UK demo cars. They seemed to premiere new things at Goodwood Festival of Speed.
I think this may have been the first European Roadster 2.5 being shown there in 2010:
