[Podcast] How did Steve Jurvetson beat Elon to VIN #1?


Ride the Lightning: Unofficial Tesla Motors Podcast
This week on Ride the Lightning: Tesla Motors Unofficial Podcast, host Ryan McCaffrey discusses the new 19″ Model S Slipstream wheels, and Venture Capitalist Steve Jurvetson’s recent tweet highlighting SpaceX and Tesla as the #1 and #2, respectively, most meaningful (and stressful) work places to be at.

An interesting tidbit not many people might realize is that Jurvetson is owner to the world’s first Tesla Model S, having VIN #0001. But even more fascinating is hearing the story of how Jurveston allegedly beat Elon Musk to become the first official Model S owner.

Listen to the podcast below.

Show description:

“Model S gets a new set of default 19-inch wheels, and a caller wonders if it presages the long-rumored design refresh. Plus: another state tries to stop Tesla from selling cars, we learn a little bit about what it’s like to work at Tesla, and lots more.”
