Smile My car of the day, Tesla roadster.

Tesla have revealed prototype images of their new roadster to take on the BMW Z4 and Audi TT. It will be offered with an optional performance package called "space X" that's meant to improve on specifications for this planned electric roadster that can out perform the traditional petrol cars. The only tech announcements made so far is that the roadster will be powered by three electric motors that deliver an astonishing (10,000 NM) of torque . Yes! you read that right which propels the roadster to 60 in 1.9 seconds and can reach speeds of over 200 MPH.



Like it?

Do I like it? Yes Do I love it No! Not sure if its just the colour though perhaps in black I'd love it. Not so keen on the side either front and rear end look beautiful though.

Taking on the Z4 and TT - that would suggest a price of £30-40k, this will be 3 times that price

More Tesla hype that will have the fanboys squealing in delight

It's a nice car, but nothing more than that. I am quite surprised actually because Tesla normally design cars to be "prettier" than that.

I would take the TTRS over this any day

I have a feeling that Tesla is going to go horribly wrong. They've already announced job cuts. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44458264

I do hope they can cope and survive, but cars like this don't really help. They need to go more mass market and as quickly as possible.

I do quite like this though, but what on earth will it cost?

Man I truly hope this comes to market with numbers similar to those mentioned. It will be a true game changer

That rear end is stunning. Not keen on the side view and the front is just ok.
