A few months ago at a meeting for Tesla owners and prospects in Houston there was a car present that was said to have previously been Gov. Arnold;s. There was a signature plaque on it with another name, suggesting that Tesla will replace original plaques for subsequent owners if desired.
I think Arnold's Roadster has become somewhat of a mythical legend. Various places I heard it was Thunder Gray, Signature Green, or even a custom Burgundy.
Definitely a lot of chatter suggesting he sold it due to comfort concerns, and was planning to get a Model S instead.
Arnold basically invented the civilian Hummer. He approached AM General to see if they could custom-build a military Hummer for him to use as a civilian, and they responded by saying that they'd have to see how much of a market there would be for such a thing. Arnold told them he'd take six.
