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 was thinking I saw one yesterday, and had to stare at it really hard as it was approaching, looking at the nose cone. Had horizontal stripes on it. When it went by, I saw the tail pipes, and then the wings on the trunk lid.

Just a poser in an Aston Martin.

Didn't have the patience to wait for one, I guess.

I have seen two. Both were parked on Shoreline Blvd in Mountain View, where I work. One was at 23andMe (a startup), and the other in a local strip mall.

I have seen zillion of those. For some reason all of them have had Audi logo. (apparently there is one Audi model that looks almost identical to Model S at certain angles. Not from front though).

I always look at the door handles first - quickest way to rule out look-alikes.

I have only seen one in the wild (not counting the Get Amped test drive event). It was driving south on the Pacific Coast Highway just south of Malibu in So. CA. White Performance with rear spoiler.

Las Vegas, I've only seen the Model S at auto shows here in town. Haven't seen any private owned MS here as yet. I'm hoping to be one of the first in the next few weeks. Can't Wait!

I've driven past a few Signature Red Model S' around where I live but for the first time ever, I drove past a Pearl White Model S (which is also my configuration) and that was about 45 minutes ago... :D


Are you in the SF Bay area?

Yup, I am! :) I work in Menlo Park which feel's like the Model S capital of the world right now!!

It's true! And most of the MS's I have seen were on Santa Cruz Ave or Sand Hill. Used to count Prius's- this is way more fun- signs of a sick mind! But so far getting a call from my wife that she saw a MS brings out big smiles for me.

Cool! I have a test drive scheduled for next Tuesday at 4pm to drive a P85 for the first time as I have only been in the Standard and I'm ordering the Performance. If your around, might see me go by too! :D

I see mine every day! B-). But, aside from mine, I haven't come across one in the Seattle area yet but I know there are a few floating around. My son told me he saw one the other day near Lake Sammamish that he thought was me (Sig Red) so there must be another one in my neck of the woods.

@joepruitt, Congrats, sorry I missed that you already had yours! I look forward to driving by a Model S while in my own Model S. My delivery specialist said to look out for it around Halloween so I'm THAT CLOSE! :D

@BYT, I'll be looking out for yours as well. What color did you go with? If you are in the Seattle area, there's a Owners meetup tomorrow in Issaquah. Not sure if I'll make it as my kids have soccer in the morning, but I'll see if I can for a little bit.


I'm just a tad south of you in the California Bay Area, otherwise I would have loved to attend!! :)

Saw a white one in the wild in Foster City of Shell Blvd. few weeks back, nothing else.

Que dramatic music... They Are Out There!!

What to play?? "Also Spake Zarathusra"? ( spelling??) from "2001"

"Zarathustra", and "Spach". But you got "Also" right. ;) (Pronounced 'all-zo', and means 'thus').

Also, it's "Queue", not "Que". (BYT)

Saw ChadS's Model S at Torklift Central in downtown Kent, WA today getting a "hidden hitch" put on it. Beautiful!!!

@Brian H - "Sprach" not "Spach" - spoke in German.


My neighbor down the street has a red one. We're on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Hopefully I'll get mine by year end (P983).

Geez, did I actually write "Spach"? Doh. Verzeihen Sie, bitte.

Going up Mt Rose from Incline Last Saturday Signiture Red with 21" wheels about 3:30 in the afternoon

Ironic since the first Roadster I ever saw years ago was nearly at the same place...

Forgiven- though nothing really to forgive- you add so much to the forum, vielen dank ( there I go again)- love that MS's are showing up more and more. There is one in particular I am looking for- still a few months out there- sigh...

Ocotber 28 and no more sitings? Darn- we know they are out there. Only local news is I got confirmation that the Gilroy Supercharge station is alive and well. Anyone using it?

@ reitmanr

Do you mean "sightings"?

sitings, sightings- sigh... just want to catch site/sight of my S.
Also- noting that when I talk to guys about the S, they get a funny look on their face...and then the questions start... usually ending with the fact that they really want to go take a look at one, at which point I hand them S brochures and let them know how they can see one live and in color... so far one confirmed order ( blue) resulted and two or three who are headed to the Tesla show rooms. I think it's contagious!

I have sighted 3 different S's on I85 between Cupertino and Mt View. I was actually following one very closely today (brand new burgundy, no plates) for a while to show it to my son from close quarters and almost rear ended it in our excitement. Had it not taken off like a rocket when we got too close, I would have caused the first ever Models S accident!

I've seen 2 .. both were in Bellevue WA.
