    This info is a bit dated. I don't think they are still losing money on Roadsters.

    I don't think they ever sold a Roadster which cost $140,000 to make. That was from an audit of predicted costs in the Summer of 2007 long before they were in production and led to Martin's demotion.

    Supposedly the $109,000 price tag does not lose money. Also supposedly the raised option prices caused the $98,000 Roadsters to more or less break even.

    Fully loaded Sport version does NOT cost $129,500. That's the BASE price of the Sport version. A fully loaded one costs $162,345 (not counting extended warranty and prepaid battery replacement).
