    So this is basically a one-off in the US then? I don't ever recall seeing that color offered on Tesla's Roadster paint samples

    Yeah, they sent it to Europe for some sort of Daimler partnership event & photo-op. Then it came back to USA and got sold to someone.

    @TEG, I think it's this one from #206 that looks metallic to me:
    roadster#206-2.jpg

    It looks a bit like a Lotus Elise in (one version of) Racing Green, which apparently is metallic Lotus paint code B86:

    Some additional links on this metallic version of Lotus Racing Green:
    The Lotus Racing Green Thread - LotusTalk - The Lotus Cars Community
    2005 Racing Green Lotus Elise #39502648 Photo #4 | GTCarLot.com - Car Color Galleries

    In general, it just seems like a "greener" color than Tesla Signature Green (aka Lotus Empire Green, we think).

    Another of Tesla Signature Green, which is definitely darker than #206:

    @TEG Do you know or have in your records who the original owner was for my car, #209? Previous owner said it was a Tesla employee

    Well, before you it was msjulie here on TMC ( CA"8CCJ105" )

    And before her it was Roadster08 here on TMC ( CA"6HWR576" )
    How many roadster owners active on TMC, and what type of roadster?

    Yeah, I heard a Tesla Exec owned it at some point, but don't know who that might be.

    Does it still have the sport seats?
