Stick with White. It’s faster than Black……..lol

Not according to the Olympics.

I wish they would come up with a different name. This is not a roadster.

Well, you can remove the top to have an open air feel like the Roadster.

“SUV’s” and “Crossovers” are really wagons, “coupes” shouldn’t have four doors, ICE cars have models with numbers that traditionally meant displacement, but now means who knows what. This roadster might have four seats and a targa top, but it’s still closer to the truth that these other examples.

When other manufacturers are showing concepts of EVs people complain about them “only” being concepts, when Tesla does it, nobody complains…🤔

Maybe others have a history of buried ev projects in their past. Did you ever think of that?

Tesla’s concepts turn into real cars. Big difference.

Tesla has fully derivable concepts. Most other concepts aren’t even derivable. Let alone at full speed.

AIUI, it’s a prototype, not a concept.

That is one sweet roadster. If I have $250K to spend, this thing would be a steal at the $250K price!

It would easily be the highest selling “super cars” out there…

No sh1t. Exotics are sold in small batches to be exclusive. So by definition their sales are low.

I wonder how far this would fly on the Barrie track crossing 😉

It would avoid that tree by going over it.

beautiful car with the worlds largest windshield wiper.

Largest and ugliest for sure. They still have time to ditch it before the customers rip that thing out themselves.

Not ugly at all. Functional.

I’m sure it’s functional…and that’s about it.

While other Tesla models look decent in red (though I’d still prefer blue or white), this one looks *much* better in white IMHO.

while the rear shot used in the video uses a what I like is a flattering angle I feel like the one in the photo is not and kind of makes me long for uniformity in design. like do we really need to keep making designs dissimilar to one another just to differentiate? same goes for that audi “shooting brake.” I love wagons (nomad, magnum et al) but where the taillight portion sticks out in the rear totally ruins its profile IMO.

Has Audi ever called any production car a shooting brake..? Mercedes has plenty. I think Audi had just one concept car that never materialised.

The dude in the video: “it’s faster than a Formula 1”.

Eh… That’s just ridiculous. 🙂 0-160-0 in less than five seconds, and a cornering ability that no road car with as much mass as four F1 cars isn’t we’ve going to approach, even on slicks.

To 100, an often quoted figure for F1 is 2.5 seconds. Which is more than Tesla quotes for the Roadster. But the F1 time is of course limited by grip, not power. I for one am a little sceptical if Tesla can actually achieve 0-100 in 1.9 seconds, as it seems it would need much wider tires than an F1 car, especially when road legal ones are to be used, to have enough grip for the job…

Been there, done that. I was lucky enough to get a ride in it. The P100D already does 0-100 in 2.8 (did that myself), this feel a lot faster. So I believe their claim for sure.
And when he says “faster than F1”, that is also correct, because F1 cars do not go 250+mph/400+kph. But it is still an American car, so we’ll have to see whether it actually likes corners or not.
