    The owners of these 2 Roadsters are part of a larger car-owner community. Each owner establishes a daily & weekly rental rate. The Tesla Roadsters rent for $100 per day.

    The transactions are mediated by a recently-formed organization -- it provides comprehensive insurance protection for owners. Does anyone know the name of this organization?

    Any leads greatly appreciated !!

    Nope, but $100 / day is way too low imo.

    I remember reading about it at one point.... I tried searching and came up with Getaround - Peer-to-peer car sharing and local car rental
    Looks like the rate was 25$/hour, but is now 50$/hour...

    Getaround offers $25-per-hour Tesla rentals | The Car Tech blog - CNET Reviews

    Hertz rents Roadsters too in some markets (NYC and LA I think)... Not sure about SF though.

    This is the same car picture as the car up for sale as a bank repo. I'm not sure I would say that the owner made this car available to rent.

    I think that is a Tesla "stock photo" (taken in San Diego), so may not indicate that it is the same car.

    I got invited to the launch party of this start-up luxury car share program HiGear - My Cars

    Seems like a high-end Get Around. Looks like they have at least one Tesla.
