How about photos of the release vehicle?

Now that 2deliveries have been made, it is time to remove the betas from the site.

Even better, here's a video of Steve Jurvetson taking delivery, posted by himself:

Now, I am fuming jealous ... he got his, where's mine? What's the emoticon for jealous, by the way?

That said, I am so very very glad to see the real car being driven by a real owner. Excellent. Now, I am not sure whether the wait will be easier or harder. On the plus side, the cars are out. On the minus side, everyone else is getting one and I am having to wait.

Loved the video!

How's that?
And it's hardly "everyone else"! More like "someone else". Or even "anyone else".

Heh.

Anyone know what color Elon picked?

Volker.Berlin | June 8, 2012

I remember some rumors that he chose black, but no definitive info yet. Maybe he likes black, but to me it seems am awkward choice for a car that is mostly driven in California, and is all about efficiency...

The shareholders meeting video showed Elon standing next to his black Model S.

Teoatawki | June 8, 2012

Elon has been driving a black alpha/beta test car. Unless the video was made in the last week, it had to have been the test car.

+1 Brian. Nice creativity.

So he did stick with black. I noticed both he and Steve got the bright 21's instead of the carbon grey wheels. Perhaps neither one got the performance option.

I believe they both got the performance option according to June 5 blog.

Teoatawki | June 8, 2012

I guess I'm in good company, then. I'm also getting performance with the bright wheels.

It's still not clear how the front plate is supposed to be mounted. I wonder if the front-end will look different on the post-6/22 vehicles.

BYT | June 8, 2012

I am also wondering about the front plates as they are required in California for the toll booths and traffic camera's, ect.
