Tesla Roadster, Electric Sports Car

It is finally out, the Tesla sports car is fine looking and the specs are out of this world.

“How fast is it?

Zero to 60 mph in about 4 seconds with a top speed of over 130 mph*. But this is not the whole story. Because it has no clutch and a very wide, flat torque curve, the acceleration of the Tesla Roadster is much more available to enjoy: just step on the accelerator and go – no matter what speed you are driving, no matter what gear you are in, the acceleration is instantaneous.

We are currently in the midst of the important and time-consuming safety and durability testing for the Tesla Roadster. While we are confident of our numbers, this testing may require design changes that affect the final specifications.”
