What did you park next to? (Or what makes the Roadster look tiny?)

    Valets and various restaurants more often than not just let certain very smart cars park right by the door. Don't know if this happens to anyone else, but it seems to happen to me a lot (maybe because there's not many Roadster here?) and I often find myself parked beside something pretty stunning. I figured here's new thread to see what else pops up....

    Today in Sarasota:

    Are you speaking about the RR or the lady adjacent to your car?:wink:

    Pretty much everything makes my Roadster look tiny; but especially this:

    Roadster looks small next to a LEAF since the Roadster is squat, and the LEAF is tall...

    But the LEAF isn't actually that big overall.

    Of course, Model S is way bigger than Roadster...

    TEG, I'm disappointed you used that ad shot rather than a real-world pic :wink:

    Hi Nigel,

    Wasn't your first photo taken today, located just a few yards away from your last photo taken in August? :biggrin:

    Don't worry, TEG. NigelM must have collected these photos over YEARS! Just to counter any possible cat/car picture.

    No, he is just disappointed that I missed an opportunity to post another picture of his Roadster next to another vehicle.

    Tiny and scared. And, as you can see, we had a little... "accident".

    Well, I was coming back to this thread seeking redemption through an old classic, but your "even bigger truck" stole my thunder...

    By the way, that was original roadster prototype "EP1".
