Default Tesla Roadster II

Just revealed, performance numbers are impressive, but at this point just a prototype.

Very good looking, but given already the production of the 3 seems for now to be a bigger bite than Tesly can chew, I don#t think that production of this is their top priority, especially as after a lot of talk the Semi is where they will have to deliver next. But still, a very clean and good looking vehicle...

Tesla should really focus on doing complete engineering work rather than cranking out deeply flawed new models like the X with its glitchy ostrich doors and the Model 3 that has the quality of a mule prototype.

Best looking high-performance sports car. Finally a really nice looking Tesla. Makes the Porsche e-Mission look bad.

But not nice enough to cost $250,000, looks like a cleaned up Acura NSX and not a true exotic.

Exotic cars are mostly ugly, thus "exotic", hence too expensive for the ugliness.

By the way, you think a Porsche 911 looks like a $250,000 car?

Porsche start at $90,000, the limited editions are sold in the $200,000 range.

The problem with the roadster 2 is that looks like a $90,000 car but cost $250,000

The problem with the Roadster 2 is that it looks like a Miata RF reboot i.e. $30K.
