“Here's a closer look at the 1st Generation Tesla Roadster - Founders Edition!

The culmination of extensive testing and experimentation, Roadster debuted to the public in 2006, at one of the company’s first public-relations events held at the Santa Monica Airport. While it borrowed from the design of the company’s earliest Roadster prototypes, the all-electric carbon-fiber-bodied production version featured completely redesigned bodywork, a reinforced chassis structure, and a longer wheelbase. This Roadster was the first production example built by Tesla, delivered to company chairman Elon Musk in February 2008.”

I’m hoping to make it out there to see the display; but, I’m hoping TMC members can post pictures of their visits on this thread if I and others don’t make it. I’m sure it’s a nice review of the roadster’s journey into production since mule 1 and Tzero is also there.
