    Was at the factory Supercharger last night and happened to come across what appears to be The Official Tesla Security Patrol Vehicle.

    The badge is apparently quite reflective. I didn't check whether it was a P or D.

    With the standard 19" rims, I'd venture to say this is a S60 (most likely) or S85. Not sure why you'd need S85D/P85(+)/P85D on a patrol vehicle.

    I would not be surprised if it was not the Lemon car! Wasn't it white? Can't sell it to anyone else. Why not use it at the factory!

    This. I wish there was a way we could prove it! Very funny.

    It's cool they have a team looking out for the supercharging stations. Is there a lot of vandalism and littering at the stations in California?

    Lloyd, I don't think it's the MD's car that that baloney lawyer was claiming was bad... I think it looked like this:

    Just happened to see this white Model S again. The rear badge read "P85."

    That seems so far the same config as the "lemon" car. Do you remember if the interior was black performance seats?

    I didn't peek inside the windows. If I'm at the factory again and see the car, I'll check.
