    At the Dallas Get Amped event today, they had a Mac in the corner with a nice background/wallpaper, I think/assume it was the Telsa logo from the hood of a red Model S, with a bunch of water droplets - very nice, and would make a nice image for the back of an iPad. Anyone have a copy of it? An image search turns up nothing similar.

    +1 on this. I'd love to have a dramatic Telsa logo for my screen background.

    Not really. It was more of an angled profile, and it was just the logo mark on red paint (i.e. not the 'shield'). The water was more 'bubbly' (Just an effect, I'm sure) - it looks a lot 'cleaner' than this image. I've emailed by rep at Tesla as well, but I know he's out for a couple more days.

    Getting closer, but still not quite there :). The water did look a lot more natural, but, I was 30ft from the monitor, so who really knows !? Hopefully I'll here from Tesla over the next day or two.

    Okay, so the first I found online, these below, I made. I should have made them higher res. Unfortunately, I started out in Photoshop instead of Illustrator. I'll likely come back and render them later in vector.

    Note: click on them to get the full res (1000px).

    @Greg - While you're at it, can you make one with a carbon fiber T over a Sig Red backdrop, preferably with a metallic glean of sunshine across the red?

    OK, well, thanks to Walter @Tesla, here's the image I was talking about. They actually got it from a Roadster owner, not sure who though....

    Yeah, let me see what I can do about that. May take me another day, before I get another window of time for it.
