This Dandy Gadget: In the last day of CES 2009, Tesla Motors Inc. began taking orders today for the Roadster Sport, a high-performance sports car based on the world’s leading all-electric, zero-emission vehicle. The good news for you who are on standard Roadster waiting list and haven’t taken delivery, Tesla Motors Inc. give you an alternative to upgrade it to Roadster Sport. But still, it is your decision.
As note, Roadster Sport comes with a hand-wound stator and increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque. For comparison with standard Roadster, The Roadster Sport does 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and 3.9 seconds for the standard Roadster. More, Tesla Roadster Sport has improved suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars that will be tuned to the driver’s preference.
“This car can beat nearly anything in its price class – yet it is twice as efficient as compact hybrid sedans,” said Michael van der Sande, Tesla’s senior vice president of global sales, service and marketing. “If you refuse to compromise on performance or the environment, the Roadster Sport is your only option.”
The price is starting at $128,500 in United State and €112,000 (excluding VAT) in Europe. Delivering begins in late June 2009. [Dandy Gadget Source]
