    I'm 6'4" so would like some kind of guesstimate of headroom with the top up. Maybe somebody at the reveal who took a ride might have some thoughts even though there was no top at the time. Getting in and out is rather a must.

    Legroom is probably not a problem as Franz von Holzhausen seemed ok in it.

    There's no way I could plop down real $$$ without knowing that I could fit in it.

    Any thoughts?

    Yes, he’s pretty tall. I think those around 6 ft 5 in will be okay. For those who don’t recognize him, he’s the tall guy on the left in that row.

    Such a great looking car. If I don't fit I will just drive around with the targa roof off like Magnum in his 308

    Following this thread. I'm 6'3" and had the same question. I haven't put down my deposit, because I wasn't sure if I would fit. I tweeted Elon, and also asked folks at the LA Auto Show. Still haven't heard from anyone, but from the picture in the post above - if Franz can fit, I am probably okay.

    Isn't Elon himself around 6'2"?

    I don't recall exactly but I do remember being surprised when someone mentioned his height. I remember it specifically because we're about the same height.

    I am 6'3" and put a down payment for the Roadster 2 already, but this is my biggest concern. Can I fit?

    Franz is 6'5", he fitted just fine. With the roof on I imagine it's a bit of an exercise to get in and out, but once in, you'll fit.

    His head seems above the interior roof line even with his haircut

    Elon said he is 6'2". When they introduced the Roadster and Franz got out of it, hi looks tad shorter than Elon.

    That has to be perspective or something. I'm 6'1" and have met him and shaken hands, and had to look up to him.
