VP17 and P4 in Chicago:
cbs2chicago.com - 'Green' Electric Car Unveiled At Field Museum
Damn it! Had I been paying attention, I would have scheduled a visit to our corporate office and then walked over to the Field Museum to drool all over Nick Pritzker's car.
Probably better off that I didn't.
I thought P4 was going to a board member who works in Chicago.
It's a guess on my part. He's one of the investors listed on the Tesla site, he negotiated the deal for Hyatt to install charging stations, and he lives in Chicago. Also, I thought the Founders Series went to early major investors, not necessarily Board members.
I'm sure that he gets a Founder's series car as he is one of the major individual investors:
Tesla Motors - investors
So not a board member but an early investor...
The "Fortune" article
lists the first 7 founder series owners...
Yes, we determined the car belonged to Antonio Gracias back when the delivery pictures first surfaced.
Oh, yes, I see. Well, I'm sure Antonio Gracias wouldn't appreciate my nose prints all over his windows either.
Actually, I've noticed that lately Tesla is pretty bad at advertising events in the USA to the general public. Instead you can read about it in the press the following day. Where as the events page on the Tesla website is always advertising something going on in Europe.
P4 at the Field Museum:
Hey, finally a Roadster without dealer plates.
I hadn't noticed before, but it looks like they've given P4 a red leather steering wheel (it was black in Monaco).
Closeup on the steering wheel:
Seems P4 had a bunch of other interior upgrades as well.
