      The wheels and the spoiler are the give away that it's the real deal. Other hints would be more subtle, like the additional front splitters, different rear diffuser, and larger P* badge.

      Looks like the front brakes are Brembo large. I'm guessing its the real thing.

      Enlarge your photo and take a look at the stitching on the steering wheel. It looks blue in the photos you posted, which is only available on the Polestar.

      Looks to be the real deal.

      While not "A Sighting" last page of Car and Driver Sept 2015 interview with John Krafcik who was with Ford, Hyundai and now prez of "TrueCar" was asked "what's your daily driver"? Say's he's a car geek and LOVES hi-po wagons.

      (You can see where this is going....)

      I drive a 2015 Volvo V60 Polestar wagon. Only regret, I did not get it in Rebel Blue. I got the black one.

      When I ordered mine, I told them just get me one, I don't care if it's blue or black, I'll be happy with either one. Good thing I did, the guy in front of me decided he wanted a blue one instead of the black one he ordered, and I got his black one, this after the dealer told me the V60P's were sold out. I love this car.

      A few of us spotted another P* today. Gabrielef got a shot of it next to my car. Driving in Ca with NJ plates for some reason. I feel like I have seen them once before. That's also a S60 Cross Country right in front of us.

      Going in opposite directions on 2nd street in Long Beach. Was a difficult shot to take while driving.

      Interesting, they're not on the registry. m80 is the only person we have from NY but he has a BSM car not Rebel Blue.

      Nice! You're not the only one checking him out. He's getting a few looks from that group on the sidewalk as well.

      Rebel gets the attention no doubt, my BSM is just another Volvo on the road sans the loud exhaust...amazing how much of a Q car the P* is in the dark hue.

      Do you have a green sticker on your back window? It was on Thursday afternoon on Riverside Avenue. Eventually, the car pulled down Main St. I was in my other car...

      Yea, he's leading up the self-driving car effort. And that's cool you sold your VR to him, I need to look him up, if he's in my area. Maybe he'll go on a drive with us one of these days, haha.

      I spotted a Rebel Blue V60 Polestar yesterday in Calgary on Deerfoot. I was headed south, and you were headed north around South Pointe Toyota. Nice car!

      I have one of the 2015.5 RB V60 P*'s in Calgary and it wasn't mine as being a transit user, I don't drive my car much during the week.

      The most recent P* I've spotted is the nifty little 1/43 scale diecast version of my car that arrived via UPS just yesterday! Really nice (yet $$$) little model. Hood opens and everything!

      Did the model come with a plastic cover to keep the dust off it? The Polestar website only shows the packaging and exposed model.
