    Sorry, my post wasn't about the money as surely there are many people in Russia that can afford this or any other car.
    I mentioned Norway because there is one guy on YT showing his imported car in, iirc, Lithuania and he got it originally over someone in Norway. Those cars won't have any cell coverage as TM does not like having cars out of their originated country.

    Oh, I first read about that guy on TMC website where we wrote about it (I can't remember his username).

    Went to the store today and sold two cars. Eden said "you need to wear one of these (Tesla) shirts."

    Just bored waiting for my car to arrive. Sat in a white 60 and talked to a couple from Miami. She mentioned NYT and I busted out Public Editor Sullivan.

    They put down a deposit.

    Another local couple that I talked to about Supercharging. Turns out they go to Vegas for family and always stop in Barstow . . .

    There were two other people in there finalizing when I got there.

    @rch. I share your angst about the long wait. My car was delivered on 1/2/13 after they promised and missed the first three delivery dates. I was an absolute basket case at delivery, but it was absolutely thrilling to get behind the wheel and take off for my first drive. After 6 months of absolute bliss, I love this care more every day, as I see the emissions coming out of ICE cars, and know that this car is clean and so quite. The car complements our 13.2 kwh solar equipped house with heat pump and heat pump hot water heater. Driving is something we fellow MS owners look forward to every day with our Tesla grins in place.

    @Mike. Not to outdo you, but I sat for at least two hours in my car parked in my garage the first night. My wife thinks I have gone around the bend, but I don't care.

    You will love it. The wait may be long, but it's worth it. And it is always a pleasure driving it (I'm still excited to get into it even after 4 months)! Enjoy!

    George B reported at teslive that they have traced several Model S to Russia, and a few are at the BMW center in Germany.

    Reverse engineering?

    You can bet that will happen once they get to China!

    Brian H - My applying for a job with them wasn't enough of a confession of my psychosis? ;-)

    OK, like many here I spend way too many hours on the forums reading anything and everything I can about the S, the X, and the company. Whenever we're out together I always point out the S's I see to my wife...

    Cheers!

    It must surely be an incredible dream to run a company where your customers hang out at your stores, selling your product for you. Elon is undoubtedly an extremely talented man, but also a very, very fortunate one. I sincerely hope he "groks" that good fortune, long may he have it

    George B reported at teslive that they have traced several Model S to Russia, and a few are at the BMW center in Germany.
    As for the Russian establishment, it's almost fit for Tesla, as a matter of money - like premium MB, BMW, Audi, Bentley and so on. But now the winter experience of Model S is almost absent in the world, especially for the regions with several months of frost lower then -20°C to -40°.
    Cell coverage is not a reason for Russia, as if sometimes we haven't it for any brand.
    So, Elon has one more ready market place after trying Tesla in winter for half a year, ofcourse.

    And only about half of those. The font controls, pre, H, strike, br, img, a, and p pretty well exhausts the possibilities.

    Yes, Brian (NOT Brain), I am registered....and it is obvious that every major auto manufacturer has or will buy a Model S and try to reverse engineer it, and also that individuals with enough $$ will find a way to get their own S in countires that currently do not officially allow it to be sold.

    is that not what Elon wanted? To move the cause of EVs forward?

    I almost didn't recognize this as a Model S. Isn't amazing how making a car look like a taxi makes it look crappy.

    Is that a paint or wrap job?

    This is the paint-flight of the advanced designer, as I understand.
    In fact, official PR of TMC in Russia is very quiet, may be because of Elon could cary cargo in the space cheaper, than Soviet space ships do now.

    I've had my MS 6 months. I still read the forums twice a day and search for news on Tesla. I still can't get enough. Whatever it is, I hope it doesn't stop!
