0-60mph in 1.9 secs! (faster than the Superman coaster ride in Movieworld)
Over 1000 kms per charge! (Brisbane to Sydney without having to supercharge with some juice to spare)
Over 400 kph top speed! (no way the cops can catch you)

I want one!

I'm going to have to sell a kidney (I have a spare), part of my liver (it will grow back), and my corneas (I won't need to see as the Roadster 2.0 will drive me everywhere)!

I'm not sure how much sense it makes for a supercar to utilize self driving. Kind of defeats the purpose...at least for driving enthusiasts.

Welcome to the party. There are about a dozen threads already about every aspect of the new roadster.
Probably true but @gcgp is kindly bringing it to those of us that hang out in the ANZ thread !

We need to campaign for reinstatement of the derestricted speed zones in the NT (not that there are many police around) !

An acquaintance of mine said that EV's are only viable if they can match the 1000 km range of a VW Golf diesel. Well now they do he change it to oh but they need to do 1,200km and change in 5 minutes. I laughed and said I don't know a standard car that can do 1,200km on a tank. I also said you need a potty break even in a petrol car.

Even if there are police around... what exactly are they going to be able to do about it...?

You'll be able to outrun pretty much every police helicopter!

Hmmmm. How far do you think the Roadster II can go at 400km/h?

Wind resistance goes as the square of speed so maybe less than 100km range at 400km/h !

The big question is what format does the 200 kWh take?
Can the X or S be retrofitted with this battery ?
The battery could be the same that is in the THE SEMI.
Interesting times ahead.

Now that's a good question! Getting Tessie a 200kW battery when her "90" (actually 81) wears down in a few years!

I have loved two things about the Roadster
One is the crazy over the top specs combined with its fabulous body shape.
The second is the new (mostly positive ) buzz it has created about Teslas and EVs. Has been a really nice bunch of posts and feel about the forums...
