    What would be the resale value of the new Roadster within 6 months of its release?

    I think that anyone selling the new Roadster would not sell it for what he/she paid for it. It's price will be jacked up to at least $300,000 for the Founders version and $250,000 for the base version. This is due to the long waiting time of the new Roadster.

    Ferrari F8 or Roadster + Corvette C8?

    For the price of a new Ferrari F8, would you get the Ferrari F8 or the Tesla Roadster and the Corvette V8? Moderator note: Fixed spelling of "Ferrari".

    I wonder how many people have cancel their reservation at this point?

    Due to the Covid-19, the Tesla Roadster 2020 has definitely been pushed back. I could have invested my $50,000 in stock at the end of March this year and would have easily make $250,000. We'll 20/20 hind site right??? Anyway, Tesla still has my $50,000. This is what I get for wanting to be...

    Roadster taking a back seat

    Oh no, that means I will move up in the waiting line. I put down the deposit late in April 2019. I do not want to move up in line due to people probably canceling their pre-order. I do not want to get the car too early because I am trying to avoid too many bugs being early adopter.

    Corona virus delay 2020 Roadster even further?

    Since there will be parts in the 2020 Roadster that are made in China, will there be further delay in the car's production?

    Anyone buying the new 2020 Corvette C8 before the Roadster 2020?

    Since the 2020 Roadster will probably be delayed would you want to buy the 2020 Corvette C8 in the mean time? I know it is an ICE car but I think it has good value and probably fun to drive. This is one way to bridge the gap before you get the Roadster 2020. It also is not too hard on your...

    Will you wrap your new 2020 Roadster?

    I am planning to wrap my new 2020 Roadster. This will be my first car wrap. I want the best clear wrapping. Since I am new to wrapping, I have some question? 1. Will wrapping make it so the car will stay fairly shiny without doing a detail/wash job? 2. Will it decrease the damage from...

    Your guess on the build quality of the 2020 Roadster

    Hahaha, I guess my 2016 P90D uneven gaps and my friend model X uneven door hinges and seeing similar defects of other people's Tesla gave me a wrong gereralization. Anyway, I hope my future Roadster will have good build quality. Crossing fingers.

    Your guess on the build quality of the 2020 Roadster

    Tesla has a bad build quality of their cars. For example, model X has misaligned side door handles, model S has uneven gaps, etc.... With such expensive price on the new Roadster, do you think it will have much better build quality? Given that this will be new design, I am afraid that we...

    What color will you get?

    I actually like the McLaren color too. It looks sporty and not common as white.

    What color will you get?

    I am definitely getting my 2020 Roadster in red. I have always wanted a red sport car.

    Why can't our Tesla cars be used as a large battery pack to power our home in case of a power outage

    Since Tesla cars have large battery pack, why can't we use it to power our house in case of an emergency? I have a Model S 90D and all I see is a 12V port. I wish there are some type of adapter that goes into the charging port to output its energy to provide electrical power for external...

    What's the point of the "Dual Motor" badge ina Model S?

    Wait, so you are saying that a Model S 75D is the same as a 75? All this time I thought that the D behind the number means dual motor and the one without the D is just a rear wheel drive. I also thought that a 75D is more expensive than a 75.

    Would you put a front license plate on your 2020 Roadster even if required by law?

    Although you do not have to drill holes, the whole point is anything that resembles a license plate on the front of the car still diminish the good look of the car.

    Is sitting in the car while being supercharged dangerous?

    You are Subject A, what about Subject B?
