    I've been vacationing in the Miami area the past week and a half and I knew the Tesla store in south Florida would be quite close to where I was staying. I decided to visit earlier this week and get a closer look at a roadster. I was pleasantly surprised that I fit in no problem. (I'm 6'5" on the skinny side)... I also remember seeing people complain about shoulder room etc. with a passenger, didn't seem to be a problem for my dad and I both sitting in the car.

    I also had the opportunity to take the roadster for a drive. I gotta say, the car is totally awesome. So awesome in fact, i want to drop by again to take the car for a whirl. :smile:

    I'm seriously considering changing my model S deposit to a roadster deposit. I can't imagine waiting another 3 years for a more practical electric car, when I can have the more fun version now.

    We waited two years for the Roadster.

    Now with a Sport immediately available, I can't imagine anyone with the scratch waiting for two years. Life's too short.

    Aye, a Roadster in hand is better than waiting two years in the bushes.

    Or something like that.

    I think your smiley face emoticon is actually the "Tesla Grin"
