    If they play their cards right, this could be the sports EV that takes over the mantle from the Roadster next year.

    This car looks very similar to the roadster, although the range and price isn't.

    Any word on performance?

    Also says later...

    Higher max speed than the Roadster, slower acceleration, less range, and according to the piece below costs a lot more money:

    2011 Artega SE Coupe op FUNDALIZE.com

    Seems like generally it falls short of what the Roadster has to offer, in what ways does it take over the mantle? (okay, since it has a real roof, for sure it will drive QUIETER than the Roadster!)

    Oh, right! I've been so happy driving my car this past couple of weeks that I totally forgot it's going out of production soon! The Artega really does look gorgeous, reminds me of a Porsche but more futuristic looking.

    How so? Doyuble the price, poorer performance/range?

    *edit* others beat me to it.

    haha not at all (IMO). Though BMW's "green" super car is supposed to retail for about the same (200k) and it's also pretty disappointing (though the MPG rating is pretty high). Dunno what these companies are thinking

    I hate to say it but I do think it looks nicer than my Roadster. That being said, I prefer the Roadster value and can't complain :)
