    Hi,
    Does anyone have insight into long-term availability of Roadster parts?
    I could not get a statement out of anyone at Tesla.
    Thanks!

    Tesla service center in LA told me they would supply parts until 2020. There is however no law, just an industry rule that all the major manufacturers have agreed to follow. The only law for parts is related to warranties, manufacturers must make parts for as long as products are in warranty. With Tesla's extended warranties that means they are required to make parts until at least 2017 and possibly longer if they continue to sell extended warranties.

    So we've got seven years before we all need to buy second Roadsters for parts. :smile:

    I've looked through the various threads and haven't seen the attached supplier list posted before. Apologies if it was, but I found it quite useful for reference now and when/if alternate pathways to parts are needed. Regardless, its nicely presented by Automotive news. Hope my attachment works...
