    This evening I parked in Westfeild Hornsby and went for Thai. Very surprised when I returned to now have a grey P85+ parked next to me.

    I thought it might be interesting to start a sightings thread.

    I reckon that by February Tesla sightings in the North Shore and Eastern Suburbs will be pretty common. I have a feeling that those areas will end up with a pretty decent concentration of Teslas by global standards.

    I think delivered today with mine. Due to rego office being closed I ended up with CWJ27J instead of my personalised plates. The blue one next to me was H and I'm assuming the grey one was the one spotted by Mark.

    Two generations of blue parked next to each other - A nice surprise when I came back to my car this afternoon.

    I think this was the roadster I saw just before the launch event. Does it belong to anyone on TMC?

    I know that this is a little left field of the subject context. . . . . I recently purchased a sci fi tv series - Continuum Season 3 - Episode 6 - One of the main actors is actually driving a Tesla Model S on the show

    Meloccom, you were spotted by one of my friends today.

    I saw a white one in Manly on Friday, anyone know who that is?

    I also spotted a green one sitting next to our car last night:

    Just spotted a Sig Red (I think - I had my sun glasses on) turning from Stanhope Grove into Prospect Hill Rd Camberwell - "BORDO 1".. fleeting glance - I was walking the dog and did not hear it coming up behind me.....

    Is this the mystery Sig?

    Cheers

    I was going to say I spotted yours, but you beat me to it. It was a double-spot. I was taking a picture as you were honking/flashing at me :)

    Wife just spotted a Silver Model S at Brisbane Boys Grammar School while dropping off our boys. Alas ours has now slipped to mid-March.

    Spotted a Silver Model S on William Street, East Sydney this morning. It is my first "in the wild" sighting on a route where I will be driving mine in a few weeks' time.

    I have been looking everywhere for them on the road, and noticed this car and thought "Gee, what a good looking car. Wonder what it is? Oh, it is a Model S!"

    The number plate is somewhat similar to others in this thread--must have been a batch.

    Saw second model S in the wild today, parked just off Cleveland street in Bourke street at about 12.30, multicoat red. Went by too fast to take picture or see the plate.
