Omni Auto Renders Next-Generation Tesla Roadster

JUL 18 2016 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 32

A next-generation Tesla Roadster has been hinted at by CEO Elon Musk on several occasions, so we know it’s coming, but nobody is quite sure when.

Omni Auto created this render of the next-gen Roadster and claims Tesla will launch the car in 2019.

Omni Auto states:

“The new Tesla Roadster will be launched in 2019 and will be “a little ‘different, a bit’ faster and a bit ‘bigger’. From these words of Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen, responsible for the Nordic countries of the American brand, we tried to imagine the style of the second-generation electric spider, much more similar to the present and the future Model S Model 3 that the old Roadster derivation Lotus Elise.”

Musk has promised us (via Twitter) that the next-generation Roadster will have performance that’s unmatched by any Tesla available today. Musk calls the next-gen Roadster “Maximum Plaid,” a reference to Spaceballs.

If the next-gen Roadster is to outperform the current Teslas out there today, then performance figures would have to be at least 2.5 seconds for 0 to 60 MPH, but we’re thinking the target would actually be a sub 2-second run. Go big or go home…

Aside from the non-current style Tesla front end, this rendered next-gen Roadster is actually quite pleasing to the eye, don’t you think?

Very nice

Can they not have one that goes 0 to 60 Respectably slower With a long range & a smaller price,,All that speed is not necessary for some/most people .Some of us don’t have the need to go so fast…

That reads like you’re in the market for a Tesla Model ≡.

The original Tesla Roadster was an expensive supercar sports car, and the next generation one will almost certainly be aimed at the same market.

you got to be kidding it’s all about speed

Why the fake grille?

Distraction teqnique…will keep people talking for day.

Grill has got to go the way of the buggy whip!

Get rid of the fake grill… Otherwise, very nice. 🙂

By production time, The grill will be Gone!

This isn’t the real thing

I don’t no about getting rid of the grill
If you filled in a beautiful girls mouth and she had no lips
Just saying front of the hast to have some style

There will be no Roadster in 2019, that much is for sure. Hopefully there will be a model 3 by then.

How about a sexy Model-Y

This looks More like a Model 3 convertible. I hope Model R will look more sporty so it can go head to head against the Porsche 911 or even perhaps Ferrari 488…

They will need more than sporty looks and straight line performance to compete with Porche or Ferrari in the sports car arena. I wish them luck but tuning for handling is a challenging task, when your talking about performance cars at that level.

I’m sure they have the talent to get there eventually but it won’t be a cakewalk.

I’ll take mine in black.

No need for the fake black grille. Other than that I like it.

When you place a reservation?? It looks amazing. I know it is not real, but it does want you to give Tesla some more money for an extended wait period

I wonder if there will be a signature edition.
I know of no such animal for the Model III.
I suppose will we have to wait and see. Someone will undoubtedly name theirs:
Eagle V or Spaceball One.

There are mixed messages about the next-Gen Roadster.

One one hand, they have repeatedly said that it will be based on the Model 3 chassis. On the other hand, they keep making it sound like it will be a super car.

Well, the Model 3 chassis isn’t supposed to be their high-dollar lightweight high performance chassis. That is the Model S chassis. The Model 3 is supposed to be their more budget-minded chassis.

A sporty 2-door based upon a more budget-minded passenger car chassis would be more like a BMW M4, or an Audi TT RS. And while these are definitely quick cars, they most definitely are not what most enthusiasts would call a “super car”. Not like a Veyron (SP?) or something.

The model S chassis is just too freaking big! The model 3 chassis is a much better size for a roadster no doubt about it.

Yes, Model S is too big and the Model 3 is too pedestrian for a true super car.

That’s the conundrum.

Nix

“One one hand, they have repeatedly said that it will be based on the Model 3 chassis. On the other hand, they keep making it sound like it will be a super car.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
chas·sis
noun

the base frame of a motor vehicle or other wheeled conveyance.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I don’t see that there is necessarily a contradiction there. Same frame, possibly the same battery pack, upgraded suspension and wheels, upgraded motor and power electronics, different body.

Why not?

Well, that is sort of my point. If you take a regular 3-Series sedan, and do all those things to it, you get a BMW M4. You don’t get a Koenigsegg One:1 super car.

For a car like that, you have to start from the ground up as a super car, not start with a $35K car and make mods.

I’m not saying it won’t be killer. I just don’t know where in the continuum of sports cars it will fall.

Nooooooo..secone

I don’t know. It doesn’t have a hatch-back.

*ducks for cover*

I would not be surprised to learn that the next Tesla Roadster has a retractable hardtop.

After the Model X doors is that such a good idea. Keep it extremely simple pls.

I don’t know…

Looks like a mix between Miata, Porsche Boxter and Audi TT into one…

I think the “real Roadster” will look better than this.

Looks horrible. The nose seems to be “bent” like some giant stepped on the front of the car. No consistent esthetic at all, just some armchair designer’s mish-mash of Telsa-esque bits and pieces. Blech.

Besides, the fake grill is so 2012.

Want (in red) as long as there’s room for couple of golf sets and overnite bags :-).

Obviously the faux grill would go away, but other than that, it looks like a Tesla and an Aston Martin had a love child, and that is awesome!
