Roadster

Jay Leno's Garage next generation Roadster

edited August 2018 in Roadster
Showed Aug 23. Pretty short segment, but looks like Jay's impressed. Basically an intro with a short M3 drive, then on to the roadster with a test 0-60 acceleration with Franz driving. That's it. More to come, I guess. It does get it out there with the performance specs to a general audience.

    No new information disclosed then?

    Nothing really. An interior shot, but Franz quoted the same specs as the reveal.

    Just a nice publicity. Most people outside the Tesla circle I imagine probably still haven't heard or seen the Roadster.

    Would be nice if Jay could dedicate an entire episode to this spectacular vehicle.

    It would be nice but still too early to. The car is not in production yet.

    When the time comes, it would be great for the show to compare the old Roadster to the new one.....that would really show how much progress Tesla has made from a performance standpoint.

    Looks like no info in front of the driver.
    Would be nice to have a heads up display, seems like it could fit in nicely while still maintaining a steamlined look.

    There is a small display in front of the driver. Just not shown in the video.

    Will there be a production model that beats the Posche 2014 spider, which Wikipedia has in the historic top spot for 0-60 clocked at 2.2 seconds, Tesla Model S P100D w/Ludicrous in second place at 2.28 seconds?

    @nwondka: sorry, but have you read anything about the Roadster? The base car will do 0-60 in 1.9. That means the performance version (or whatever they are going to call it) will be faster. It will beat everything at everything! That is Elon's promise
