The point is that I had not expected to see a Tesla EV driving around in Den Helder, The Netherlands. What happened that day (February 1st, 2013) in Den Helder, was that I was waiting for a traffic light to go green, but suddenly I saw a black Tesla Roadster driving by. Before I could realise that I should be making a photo the black Tesla Roadster was already gone. Too bad. But the same day When I was driving in southern direction towards Alkmaar, I saw another orange Tesla Roadster driving in the opposite direction (towards Den Helder). So, actually that day was even more special, because I had seen 2 Tesla Roadsters.

I saw on the website of Tesla Motors that now there are only 7 Tesla Roadsters left to be sold. This number was higher before. And I checked the number of new cars that have been given a license plate in the whole month of January 2013, and I saw that one of them was a Tesla Roadster.

Yes, last I heard (a few months ago) was that there were about 150 Roadsters left in the EU to sell.

And now there are only 7 left to be sold. From about 150 a few months ago to 7 now, that's a good result for Tesla Motors, knowing that these Tesla Roadsters are pretty expensive cars.

I see Roadsters 'in the wild' in South Beach and along Biscayne Blvd here in Miami regularly, yet no Model S yet. Maybe Model S's hang out in the suburbs too much or blend in too well with the Jaguars and Aston-Martins so I miss spotting them...
