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.

I have yet to see a Model S on the roads! While disappointing, I am confident I will spot one soon in the Portland metro area.

@ Teoatawki

My wife spotted a beautiful Signature Red Model S not far from home (SE Bellevue) on Sunday 11/11/12. Guessing it was Teoatawki since I read he delivered on 11/8. Congrats and jealous!


..............hhhhhmmmmm......not that I should presume...he/she

I saw a Red Model S already with license plate going westbound on Hwy 237 near Sunnyvale, CA - I think it was October 30th....just after I got my Red Model S (factory deliver on 10/27). We both saw each other and both gave a "thumbs up".
My daily commute is from Redwood City to North San Jose, so I travel Hwy 101 and Hwy 237 daily. No license plate or HOV sticker yet.

Red Sig Performance with 21" silver wheels, Black leather (red piping), paint armor.

I charge regularly at work (using Blink charger or NEMA 14-50) but have also installed a NEMA 14-50 outlet at home if needed. I normally just plug into 110V outlet for a trickle charge at home - only need 6KW when driving home from work (about 19 miles).

I used the Supercharger at the Folsom Outlets a few weekends ago - wow, this thing was pumping 81KWHr of juice in - I got a full charge in about 1 hour (from about 60 rated miles remaining to 240 Rated miles)!

Might have been me. No plate yet, and the driver looks like Grizzly Adams. 21" Silver rims, glass pano roof, black interior with red piping and CF trim. Spoiler is still promised.

Switching to winter tires this Friday, leaving for Minneapolis on Saturday.

I believe I saw a signature red/21" this morning (11/14) near Chantilly, VA. It was turning toward me and blocked by traffic, so I only saw the headlights and door handles. It could have been the same one that @mfcnova saw, or perhaps we have a second one in NoVa!

Saw Kck gas in my. I believe that is mandl's Sig S.

Got word of a black one in Folsom today.

Black, light wheel.

Nice to have company!

Saw two White Model S's in Los Gatos today, one with grey 21" the other with silver.

An hour ago (10pm) a Red Sig on the 520 bridge between Seattle and Bellevue.

Dazzling headlights.

One sig Red Model S seen on El Camino Real in Menlo Park headed south, caught in traffic like me, just he was grinning instead of fuming like me and all the other ICE cars stuck in place. No license plate and a more mature driver with glasses. Thought he might be headed to the Menlo Park Tesla Show Room but when I arrived, he was not there. There were two or three sig Red Mod S parked alongside the service area. I suspect getting ready for delivery. Can't count these in my contest with my wife. They have to be on the road, so I get 1 MS for the day.

Saw a white Model S on 11/18/12, sometime in the late afternoon, heading south on El Camino Real in Sunnyvale, CA. First time I've seen it in the mild, although I presume there are more MS owners in the Silicon Valley than anywhere else as of yet. patiently waiting for mine.

I saw a black model S in Bethesda, MD on River Road. Can't wait to get mine.

Saw a Sig Red in the Day's Inn parking lot in Vancouver, WA this morning, just across the river from Portland. It had Nevada plates.

Then, later in the afternoon, I saw the Portland store's brown test drive car driving around Beaverton. Two in one day!

Two Teslae tonight, not including a demo driver and a display car at the Santanna row store. One white one parked in the Tesla parking zone at Santanna, and a black one parked at the Hyatt in Santa Clara, both customer owned.

E-Brian: That was me! (4GET OIL) Hello neighbor!

I saw a black Model S and a red one (no license plate yet) this morning on Shoreline Blvd in Mountain View, CA. Can't wait for mine to join them...

A friend of mine saw a model S in West Hawaii on the Big Island, going North toward Kawaihae. Hope I can see it and confirm his report.....

Saw a Signature Red pulling into Lockheed Martin complex in Sunnyvale, CA.

Heard of a sighting last week at an SDG&E event - yes, one of the executives at the local gas and electric will now get to use his employee discount to power his car! But I finally saw my first Model S "in the wild" yesterday - I'm guessing a Silver Metallic Sig Performance (although it looked more Champagne-colored, it had the grey performance wheels). He had just exited a well-known "fast" stretch of Highway 52 that runs from La Jolla to San Diego's East County and was getting back on westbound. I was also heading west and, when I saw him coming toward me, I thought: "Ooh, cool ca...wait a minute!" And then he zoomed by. I stuck my had out the window and he acknowledged my "thumbs up." Came home and told my wife I didn't know whether to be elated or depressed. P1269 - supposed to be December now. Not holding my breath....


There is a champagne coloured Model S.!-Custom-colors?highlight=pink+model

Yeah, you shoulda been thinking, "gggrrrrrr".

Today we were westbound on Bainbridge Island, WA in our Sig Red and saw a green Sig going Eastbound. I heard a rumor that there was a custom green Model S over there.

We were both going to fast to acknowledge each other.

Thanks, Jerry3 - glad my eyes weren't playing tricks....

There couldn't have been a green Sig. Must have been a Production demo unit. Sigs are just red, black, white, silver.

Hence the word custom.

Like maybe a Founder car?

Saw another in Bellevue, WA yesterday. Nearly drove off the road looking at it and can't remember the color. This Tesla car is not safe for me to look at. I've heard that owning one cures this problem ;-p

re green Sig: Remember that the VERY early sig holders had an option to choose custom colours (hence the pink one (!), but that option was removed after the first few cars. Sig green is therefore very possible.

I think the pink/lavender was the last.
