Fantastic sportscar

by Normandy from Texas on Fri Nov 16 2012

The Tesla Roadster is a fantastic sports car, but it is a sports car. One would have spend at least $100k more that the price of a Tesla for a car with better performance at legal speeds. Acceleration: 0 to 60 in 3.7 or 3.9 seconds depending whether a Sport model or a non-Sport model. It has excellent cornering. If you have $300k or more to spend and still buy a Tesla Roadster, it is because it is good for the environment. For pure performance with over $300k to spend, there are lots of great cars available. It is all electric and I just plug it in each night and do not even think about range restrictions while driving in my large metropolitan area. I would think about range for taking a road trip. The car has been trouble free and Tesla service has been excellent. I hardly notice the cost of electricity. To any of my friends who would have been a good candidate for a Jaguar E-Type in its heyday, I would highly recommend the Tesla Roadster. My Tesla has been much more reliable than most of the many sports cars that I have owned.

Worthy

by frequencydip from Los Angeles, CA on Wed Feb 06 2013

I've had my Roadster for over a year and still love how fast it accelerates. Tesla has provided the best service of any car company I've owned. The range is great, I have a full charge when I leave the house every morning giving me more than 180 miles of range while driving the car spiritedly.

Unparalleled acceleration in this price bracket.

by Tesla Owner from New York on Wed Jun 01 2011

This car is a lot of fun and the torque from the electric engine at any speed is amazing. The negative is obviously its limited ~250 mile range, but as long as you're not going across country this is an amazing car to drive around in. It's novelty is backed up by incredible performance matched only by Lamborghini and similar companies for hundreds of thousands more. A symbol of the future of automotive power and a great car to drive.
