I saw several post on facebook with Tesla Model S in front of Bayrischer Hof (a famous Hotel in Munich) here in Munich.
Sadly I havn't been there in person quick enough!
But I can confirm Tesla Model S has landed in Europa. Yeah!
It will be interesting to see how euro reservation rates accelerate from this point forward. If euro magazine reviews are as glowing as on this side of the pond, it wouldn't surprise me if they catch up to US reservation numbers. Especially when you consider the savings in fuel costs and tax incentives.
I noticed Munich has made it into the Events list anyone can register for:
Pity it's such a long drive from where I live - does anyone know where the car is going after the 2nd November - might it be moved to the Benelux ?
Tesla's press release for the event (not telling too much, actually):
Hello all ,
somewhere above was the question for the VIN of the signature red Model S that was displayed in Munich .
The VIN is : 5YJSA1DP8CFP01216
I live near Munich and I was four times at the Tesla Store this week (one time every working day) .
It was a joy to see the car in reality and to sit in the car .
I cannot await the test drive events which will really come soon .
In the Tesla Store Munich I have heared that 3.000 Model S will come to Europe in 2013 . Deliveries shoud begin in late March / early April 2013 .
I know that this is only speculation but if 330 cars arrive every month (which will make about 3.000 cars in 9 months), all signatures and the first produchtion cars would be delivered until May / June 2013 .
Congratulations to all who have reserved a Model S yet !
Hope I see you at the test drives !
Anyone who has any clue of destination of the cars?
I, unfortunately, missed the opportunety to see the cars in person in Munich.
Is it the Netherlands, Belgium or Norway next?
There is video of a car already in NL (on German plates). Nothing more on the TM Events site for the Model S in Europe. :-(
Are the cars in NL? Have local reservation holders get any direct ivitation to some event from TM in Europe?
Nothing more on the official TM Events site that i have notised.
A new link has appeared on my Tesla page. When I click on it a small window opens but no manuals or warranties appear. Anyone else have this issue?
Some recent past production ICE consumer automobiles with the 4-wheel steering (4WS):

--- Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4
Per Elon at All Things D...after tomorrow's, around June 20 is next (presumably the "fifth" in the trilogy)
