    I guess Steve Jurvetson got his Model S:

    Well technically not number one, but he's got the first one of the line

    When was that taken? That's right on campus.

    Can't see more of him than a shoe. That's definitely his plate, though.

    Note the carbon fiber accents.

    Also note the color matched rear parcel shelf. I think this is the first pic I've seen of one.

    So I guess this confirms that we will see ACTUAL customers get their cars on 6/22 if founders are getting theirs now. YES.

    I wonder if they are required to keep mum about their experiences with the car.

    Silver wheels?! I guess Jurvi didn't like the Perf wheels either with his Sig Red.

    And I guess that Elon got his over the weekend as well! It shouldn't be long before the Model S gets into the hands of a journalist or two.

    Yeah, it's looking more and more likely I'll go with the silver myself.

    Anyone know what color Elon got?

    I'm sooooo jealous! At least 9 months more waiting for me, why, why!?

    I can't wait to hear stories from Model S owners.

    I'd be willing to bet Black. He loves black.

    Actual deliveries the very first weekend of June is pretty damn impressive.

    Edit: not just the first weekend, on June 1st!

    It would be great to see a few pictures of Jurvi and Elon driving away in their cars. (but I completely understand if they want to keep that moment private, as they have both worked a LONG time for it, it is up to them how they enjoy it)

    This is just plain amazing, what an achievement by Tesla and Elon (what a week it must have been for him).

    Yeah, Elon's been quiet about receiving the car; he tweeted a couple of hours ago about the SpaceX Dragon capsule arriving in port but, nothing about his Model S. Jurvetson is not much of a tweeter!
