Tesla Roadster Founder Series

Tesla Roadster Founder Series

On the Tesla website, it states that there will be exactly 1,000 Tesla Roadster Founder Series reservations available, with a reservation price of $250,000. But It also states that the Founder Series price is $250,000. So my question is, will anyone wishing to purchase a Founder Series Roadster be able to purchase it after 1,000 reservations are made and after the reserving period is over?

No, On the Tesla website, it states that there will be exactly 1,000 Tesla Roadster Founder Series reservations available

I just said that above. I'm wondering about after the reservation time is up, when someone is able to purchase a Roadster, instead of reserving it.

Once the last founders series is sold, it will no longer be in production.

I was interested in it originally thinking it was a true limited edition model with extra features, but I dont believe its the case.

My understanding is that its a regular production version that is given as reward for their referral program. In the same way of the past Model S and Model X "founders edition"

@sschaem: you could simply buy the Founder's Edition on all vehicles. Has nothing to do with the referral program itself. Just 1000 available with the Founder's badge. Once hey are sold, either in preorder or after unveil it will not be available.
Funny thing is that on the US website, they state both reservation fee and price, wehreas on the European websites, it just states the reservation fee, which is just a rate conversion for the 250k. No final list price is known at the moment.

Maybe the Founder's will have the SpaceX option available and base Roadster won't. Elon also talked about the performance numbers being for the base model. Maybe the Founder's will be quicker/faster than the base model anyways, even without the SpaceX option package?

We will only know once they actually unveil the production model.
