    I am having a nit-pick day ... sorry in advance ...

    I was led to the Tesla Roadster Monroney Sticker from a different thread (discussing motor efficiency as expressed by kWh/100 miles). Pictures of the stickers are referenced in post #599 here.

    Things I noticed and wondered about. Anybody else notice something I missed ?

    1. I thought there is no 2009 model ?
    2. The VIN in the "2009" sticker is bogus. (But that's maybe to signify it's a sample not a photo of a real 2010. Then again it makes you wonder ...)
    3. The parts count numbers on both "2009" & 2010 stickers are "off". Taiwan in mentioned in the specific parts list, but does not appear in the list of countries that adds up to 100%. Is Taiwan being mixed up with Thailand ? In the case of the 2010 sticker there's 2% missing (sometimes ok due to round-off). No more German parts in the 2010 ?
    4. Battery Pack otigin on 2010 is USA, Batteries on 2009 is Japan.
    5. Motor origin is still showing as Taiwan.
    6. (2009): 253 HP/185kW. I thought it was 248 HP (close enough?) And the 2010 ratio 288/199 is way off too. (Lookup converting kW to HP.)
    7. Using reverse calculation on the Estimated Annual Electricity Cost, for the 2009 they use a combined 32.1 kWh/100 (32 CITY/33 HWY), but 2010 uses the 29 kWh/100 CITY only.
    8. Gas is cheap :confused: ($2.80 for 2009; $2.10 for 2010). WHERE, please ? In Venezuela ? UAE ?
    9. In 2010 motor kW range is 185-200, but the specific car has 199kW power (288hp).

    Anyone want to post a 2011 sticker ?

    That second one is a perfect match for my 2010 regular non-sport.
