THE TESLA MODEL S

Electric cars were viable competitors with stinky, explosive gasoline vehicles in the early 20th century. Despite Thomas Alva Edison's tireless efforts to perfect more powerful and longer-lasting batteries they were encumbered with lead-acid technology. Electrics enjoyed some success in urban busses, delivery trucks and staid around-town transport for matrons. Electrics had promise, but cheap gasoline cars from Ford, Chevrolet and others had range and flexibility advantages that relegated electrics to irrelevance.
Until, that is, Elon Musk came along with his PayPal billions and a commitment – even an obsession – to make the electric car the vision of the future.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Tom Hanks is no newcomer to electric (and hybrid) vehicles. In 2004 he faced motorhead David Letterman's inquisition on "The Tonight Show" about his electric vehicles and stated a concise – and early pre-Tesla – case for electric vehicles. He has been true to the concept ever since, owning several electric conversions of conventional ICE vehicles as well as purpose built EVs.
This 2015 Tesla Model S is the high performance, dual motor, all-wheel drive version.

Despite being used regularly around the Los Angeles area by Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson it has accumulated only 13,445 miles at the time of cataloging and has always been professionally and consistently maintained. The CARFAX, as should be expected, is clean.
The exterior color is British Racing Green, a color that isn't found on Tesla color charts. It was a special ordered, "Paint to Sample", color specified by Tom Hanks in "my favorite color." The interior is a pristine light tan with charcoal accents. With the exception of one tiny wheel rim paint chip the four alloy wheels are unblemished and mounted with a set of 245/35 R 21 W Continental ContiSportContact tires. It comes with its Tesla charging cables.

Blistering performance, environmental consciousness, Tom Hanks ownership and negligible miles are all good reasons for buying this Tesla Model S P85D but the unique, special order color is an even more enduring attribute. This singular Model S will always attract favorable attention even among Teslerati and start conversations about how it came to be liveried like a Blower Bentley.
