Other Tesla buyers of distinction included Jerry Roby and Paul Norris, both of Newport Beach.
Roby, who already owns a Tesla roadster, Model S and Model X, wants two Model 3s: one left-hand-drive car for his home in California, and one right-hand-drive car for his other home, in Wales.
Norris said he was also buying two, one for himself and one as a gift. "Not everyone can afford these cars, you know," he said. "This will make a great gift for someone."
