    I'm having problems with the look of the rear end of this vehicle - at least from the angle shown in the photo

    I know Tesla don't want to be tied to one manufacturer, but I'd be happy to see them team up again on this.

    I guess it was designed by Barney Hatt too. I actually prefer the front end styling on the Eagle over the Roadster. Nice looking car.

    Yes that looks much better. Must be that one particular angle in the Autocar photo

    Maybe future versions of the Roadster can use the Evora dash. You could then have a proper nav system or maybe even integrate it with the VDS. Any word as to whether or not the Evora has an advanced airbag system?

    Some more shots of the dash. Obviously some are RHD and others are LHD.
