    Model S Celebrities

    In an article on the Model X today: Tesla Shows Gull-Wing Electric SUV Ahead of Model S Sales - Businessweek
    it was mentioned that actor/producer Jon Favreau is on the Model S waiting list. I also remember hearing that ex-NBA player and former co-host of the now defunct SpeedTV "The Car Show", John Salley was on the waiting list.

    I think some celebs driving around in Model S's would be great free advertising for the company...

    I remember seeing Dominic Monaghan of Lost fame say on Top Gear US that he was on the reservation list.

    Maybe they can do an ad campaign with celebrities saying "I am a Tesla" or something. Ok, maybe there is a reason I'm not in advertising

    Toyota orchestrated a groundbreaking celebrity campaign seeding Hollywood. Not as organic as it seemed on the outside.

    I suppose they will drive up to the red carpet to come out of the falcon door...
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    Yeah it's pretty hard to look graceful on the carpet in a long dress getting out of the Roadster.

    According to this WSJ article, world renown Biologist Craig Venter is a Roadster owner and is also on the Model S waiting list...

    "It's pretty cool driving with no tailpipe," says J. Craig Venter, the biotechnology entrepreneur and a Roadster owner. Mr. Venter says he is in line for a Model S because he wants an electric car he can drive from his institute's campus in San Diego to Los Angeles, and bring some other people along. The Model S will join a collection that includes some motorcycles and a 2006 Aston Martin convertible, Mr. Venter says.

    The Aston "doesn't get great gas mileage," he says. But "it sounds great."
