    Last week Tesla had two "Owner Events" during Monterey Car Week (for those not familiar with that, see Monterey Car Week, Monterey, California, your only source for complete events schedules and local information. ) I went to the one last Saturday in downtown Monterey. There were five Model S P85+ on display, free drinks, nice hor d'oeuvres and an interesting display of Model S internals. Below are some photos. And one more thing...on display inside were a new line of Tesla branded leather goods made from the same leather as the Model S seats and in the same colors: black, grey, and beige. A purse, satchel, wallet, iPhone cover, iPad cover, and a few other things I can't recall now. I was told it was the first time they were being shown, not on the website yet but will be for sale soon. Unfortunately I failed to take a photo of them!

    Also on display was an onboard 10kW charger with the cover off but I forgot to take a photo of it.

    Here's a pic of the leather goods taken by another Roadster owner:

    I was told these were being made out of leather pieces too small to use for the seats, but too large to realistically just toss. So they're being repurposed :).

    Thanks Bonnie. I see I remembered most of the items on display, but forgot the business card holder (I think I see that on the table?). Also, black leather and lined gloves with capacitive touchscreen-compatible thumb and forefinger. I thought those were nice but suspect my hands would get too warm.

    The Wall Street Journal article on the "D" event last night said they had the new leather goods with Tesla logos on display and were taking orders. Did anyone here buy? Did they say when they would be available on the web site? Today the accessories store has the lower prices for HPWC and Chademo adapter but no new accessories.
