    I spotted 2 Teslas in the wild today. One in Hawthorn (driving past my house!) and one in Armadale - both black, both standard issue licence plates. Friends are reporting sightings all the time. There must be a pretty substantial number in Melbourne already. More than we might suspect?

    This one got spotted at Breakfast Creek in Brisbane. It was posted to the Brisbane/Gold Coast Exotic Car Spotting Facebook page.

    I work in Worlds Square and was waiting at the corner of George and Liverpool streets when a Multi-Coat Red Model S flashed by.
    Sorry no picture he was there and gone in less than a few seconds.

    I can tell you that there are indeed a lot of Model S owners and potential Model S owners in Melbourne, and hardly any of them are on here. I tell them about it so they probably lurk around :)

    That's me. I knew that was you! The brown looks amazing.

    After you left there were two others: green and grey.

    Roadster sandwich!

    Light blue soft top roadster
    Dark blue model S (mine)
    Light blue hard top roadster

    It is the first time I had seen both roadsters in the car park at the same time. To get them either side of my model S was pretty special.

    Seen by a mate of mine in Walsh Bay, Sydney. Is this two-tone car the first Model S in AU (defaced) with corporate branding? Interesting highlights on the headlights, though…

    Pretty sure I saw this one too last weekend. I was too far away to make out the branding, but I think it's the same colours.

    I was going to put corporate branding on our car too - but my wife gave me a firm NO on that one.

    It looks like The Star Supercharger is getting quite popular. Pretty soon there'll be a thread about congestion at the Superchargers. :eek:
    Not being much of a gambler, I only once visited The Star once before buying Model S, and I try to spend money there whenever I Supercharge. Haven't found many places that take my fancy other than Din Tai Fung. What do people do when at The Star?
