Have you seen an S on the road today?

My wife and I, waiting for our S, play a silly game: "Seen a S today on the road?" Then we look at where we saw them. So far I have the record: just 2 in a day so far. All but one were in the mid-peninsula area. One black one seen entering I85 in Cupertino. Somehow it is satisfying to me to see them showing up. None seen so far appear to be demos: no copilot. Res number P7214 with Feb-Mar est delivery.

One friend I spoke today had never heard of Tesla. He got a Mod S brochure from me, was fascinated, and promised to let me know when he spots an S down his way in Hollister. Made me promise to give him a ride when mine arrives. Sounded good to me-winding low traffic roads in his area.

As soon as I get mine, we will make a trip to Hollister within a few weeks for Thanksgiving (or maybe before), as the in-laws live there.
I saw one on 280 last week, and a co-worker snapped a pic of one on Stevens Creek and Lawrence Expwy heading out of Cupertino (BTW, there are usually 2-3 at Apple on any given day).

We used the Gilroy Supercharger Saturday. We were on a trip to the Carmel/Monterey area. We didn't really need the Supercharger but we thought we might as well try it out. What a gift from Tesla and SolarCity! We can't wait for a long cross-country trip. But for now the next long trip will be a trip to Disneyland in December.

Hey Darrell
We haven't seen your gorgeous S Yet!

What is the Supercharge station near? We drove by this past weekend, but we were trailing our horse and couldn't explore the centre.

Love to have you show off your Super Car for us. We still have a few months to wait for ours.

Delighted to see a new Signature Model S Silver Tesla in Carmel Valley, California while having lunch at EarthBound Farms.

Richard, we haven't been around much. And when we are around we've been too busy. Luckily things have died down a bit. Let's get together some weekend.

The Gilroy Supercharger is on San Ysidro Avenue not far from the Leavesley address usually mentioned. It is a bit hard to find since it doesn't have the solar roof or Tesla "rocket." The easiest way to find it is look behind the bus stop on San Ysidro.

I saw the pictures, but dang, that is one ugly ass front license plate holder. When I heard "integrated" I was thinking perhaps it would look better. How about a 1/8th inch depression in the nose cone that flush fits the plate? Better, a lexan cover that matches the nose cone profile to keep the recessed plate aerodynamic...

Have been seeing them in Palo Alto for months. I work one block from the Tesla headquaters. Did see one at the San Jose airport last week - beautiful. Can't wait!

Spotted on Valparaiso going west, silver S with 21" rims I think, pano roof. I noticed the only sound as it passed was the sound of the tires rolling on asphalt- not much!

Great to hear the SC station in Gilroy is working. Thanks Darrell. Yes, let's get together on the weekend. This one? I just need to see what my wife is doing.

Richard, our calendar looks open this weekend. Let's talk.

I saw a red Model S on 101-South in Palo Alto on Tuesday morning. It was in the same traffic jam as me - no HOV stickers yet!

I saw a black Model S this afternoon on the way home from work in Los Altos. Then I saw my wife's Sig Red in our garage. OK. Not on the road but I did see it!

I saw Rod (of Rod and Barbara fame) driving around in his Red Signature on election day.


Sure you did! And the next thing you'll be telling us is that it was right next to a roadster. Man.... what we have to put up with!:)

Gonna see one today. Rolling up in front of my house on a trailer.

After that, I'll see it from the inside.


Drove our model S to Palo Alto Fry's and parked next to another one. Could only tell
difference in that it had 21 inch wheels

hammy16, you were smart to park next to another. That ways you won't get a ding from the other MS only possible on the side with the ICE.

Saw a pearl white with carbon fiber spoiler in northern chicago suburb about a week ago. Unfortunately it was going the other way or I would have caught up with the owner and tried to talk him up.

reitmanr, you know it! How did you guess? 8-)

San Diego - Lindbergh Field, Terminal 1. Signature red. CA Lic #4GETOIL. Like a true TM dork, I took a picture of a parked car. Maybe I was surpised to see one without a crowd around it.

See you on the roads, neighbor.


Saw VIN#1 (TSLA S1) on 101 in Palo Alto yesterday.

Saw a Black P85 in Phoenix with Black Leather, and Purple wood. Also had Purple piping on the seat.


Integrated nose cone idea? That's exactly what I think Tesla should have done (indeed all manufacturers for that matter)

I don't know of any state that doesn't require a front license plate so I'm amazed that designers haven't figured it out in all this time!

@CherifB | NOVEMBER 10, 2012: I don't know of any state that doesn't require a front license plate so I'm amazed that designers haven't figured it out in all this time!

A quick internet search reveals that the following state do not require a front plate:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia.

But I would agree that some kind of integrated nose cone should be available.

Yeah! Another Sig red seen this evening on 85 near San Jose CA headed north at a good clip. Two gents onboard- they ddn't respond to my salute horn. but why would they... I was driving our litle Prius- hardly noteworty- and we love our 50mpg hybrid. Still waiting for an expected delivery in March of P7214 85kWH standard.

I saw a Model S Signature in Tyson's Corner, VA on November 10. The car is Signature Red with 21" Silver Wheels. I didn't see the P85 emblem on the rear of the car. This was my first public sighting in VA.

Saw my first one parked at a racquet club in the St. Louis area this weekend.

Silver Ms spotted on Foothill near Sandhill headed into Menlo Park.Looked Great!but afterall, M T car of the Year! Congrats all Around!
