    I saw one last week when I took delivery. Looked really nice and I would have no doubt bought one but I had a similar Bellboy iPhone case on order. So I got a $30 Tesla Tee-shirt instead (*cough* *cough*)

    So Tesla can make iPhone cases but can't seem to stock their rear consoles... Okay, okay, I realize my comment has no bearing but I couldn't resist...

    $50 seems a bit steep though...

    Rear consoles...LOL... :)

    The price is about the same as the Apple leather iPhone cases.

    Looks nice. Unfortunately, I just got a new Apple case. Maybe when it wears out...

    Got the case and will be happy to snap some pictures later.

    It is actually a lot more sturdy than I was expecting. It does reveal more of the phone itself compared to the Apple leather case which I like for viewing, but, can see my phone taking a bit of additional abuse.

    I also got the case with the card holders. They will be very handy on my travel days.

    Very happy with the case overall.

    Just got mine as well. Surprised. Ordered yesterday. Got this morning. I know their shipping is expensive, at least to Canada, but it didn't specify next day which is great. Not complaining.

    As for the case itself it is less bulky then the Apple cases but indeed it means the phone can take more abuse. I am also thinking that it may not be long-lasting as it seems the leather is applied over a plastic case. That being said I like how it makes the phone lighter, shows more of the phone and best of all has the great Tesla mark on it!

    Does it fit into the lighting connector doc in the "premium center console"? :)

    Just received my Tesla iPhone 6 leather case. Really a nice item. The iPhone snaps in securely. The leather feels good.
    The Abstract Ocean Slimline Magnetic Phone Holder which was designed for the Tesla allows you to simply insert the thin
    meta disc between the fold of the outermost card holder. It is then hidden from sight. And the Magnetic Phone Holder's
    Neodeum magnet really grasps the iPhone thru the leather.

    I do not plan on storing credit cards in the iPhone holder. The Abstract Ocean magnet could harm the magnetic strip on your
    credit card if stored in the case's slip pockets.
