Jurvetson has had his eye on the first Model S since the concept of the Model S was out there. Back in 2010, Jurvetson told the story to a Chicago Tribune reporter and explained that at a board meeting in early 2009 this happened:
“The policy was that only after the car was officially on sale and the price had been set could anybody reserve a Model S. . . They were about to open the meeting, so without saying a word I whip out my wallet, where I always keep one check, fill it out for the full price of the car, and then toss it across the table. Everyone was stunned.”
Here’s the video of the delivery taken recently and posted yesterday:
