It's hard to believe, but 10 years has passed since  the Tesla Roadster debuted in Palo Alto in 2006.

Here is an unforgettable video from the 5th August 2006 - when Tesla was still nearly two years before the start of retail sales in 2008.

Today, some of those same original Roadsters sold are now being outfitted with an optional battery upgrade package (70 kWh), giving the EV a 35% jump in range over its original specs.

It was time when not only YouTube videos resolutions were small, but not many spun bold dreams about electric cars.

Now, 10 years from those early Tesla Roadster demonstrations we not only have the Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X and the Model 3 in 2017, but an expanding portfolio of other various other electric vehicles on the horizon.

Where we will be in the next 10 years?
