I've been thinking a bit about the Roadster. There seems to be a general consensus that the handling on it will be poor. After all, there's a more-than-a-tonne battery pack in that floor! While it's clear Tesla will do everything they can to keep it light (after all, the pack costs less than an order of magnitude of the car's price!), there's no getting around the weight. But when it comes to handling, I think one thing has been unfairly overlooked, which has the potential to make this car handle like nothing ever before: torque steer. The rear wheels are, of course, each driven by their own motor, and the car can be steered by differential torque applied to each of them - even one wheel accelerating at max power while the other attempts to reverse at max power. All of this force will be applied to very sticky tires. Computer-assisted J turns, drift control, etc? Oh, you better bet that this car is going to handle them with almost unreal agility, with enough lateral force to be almost painful if you (and Tesla) wants to let the car do it. Better have good side support in the seats Nothing is going to make this car feel "light" (although Tesla will certainly do everything to keep the weight down). But in other ways, the handling on this vehicle - assuming that Tesla handles the implementation well - is going to be amazing.
