The unnamed investor linked to a Tesla Motors Club forum, specifically a thread tracking deliveries of the latest car. One user uploaded a picture of the new car (shown here, on the left) — the highest-end model, the P85D — sitting next to another Tesla Model S in a parking lot.
The user claims the car was spotted at Sunday’s Motor4Toys event in Woodland Hills, Calif.
We’ve reached out to Tesla Motors to verify that the company has in fact begun shipping its new car.
The new dual-motor Model S was unveiled in October. It comes with improved speed and acceleration, and a new “Autopilot” feature that can read speed limit signs and keep your car in its lane without your hands on the wheel.
Tesla initially said it would begin shipping its new dual-motor Model S in December.
