The New Roadster does not seem compatible with the master plan, item 3. to wit:
"Use that money to create an affordable, high volume car".
Rather the New Roadster goes in the opposite direction, toward limited release, exotic automobiles of interest strictly to the wealthy buyers of such vehicles.
I submit that Tesla should for consistency also be developing a small, light, incredibly fun-to-drive roadster that is as affordable as a Mazda Miata.
Sure, it would be great for Tesla to also have an extremely limited number of ultra-high performance cars that could go up against the Nio Nurburgring lap record, which is likely to be eclipsed soon by the Pike's Peak record-holding Volkswagen ID.R, and other similar halo cars.
But what about the rest of us?
Please give this some thought, Tesla...
