    2009 Tesla Roadster, Used Cars For Sale - Carsforsale.com

    That listing gets copied elsewhere without the pix or full description and people comment like "hey a 2009 Tesla for $20K or $40K... what gives?"
    I think the guy is doing a disservice by calling it a Tesla Roadster in his listings.

    Never heard before of this car. Looks nice and seems a good electric car. Any more information about it?

    They tried to make a go of it some years back but failed.
    We have a thread on it here: Electrum Spyder

    I believe they only managed to build this one prototype, so it's likely one of a kind.

    It seems to be no longer listed on carsforsale.com but is still on autos.aol.com
