    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)

    For completeness. The relevant quote from today's blog.

    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!
