Mythbusters in Tesla's Own Words - Roadster is NOT Elise

In the months of research before and after I bought the roadster I read 3+ years of this forum. In all that time I saw references to how different the Roadster was to an Elise/Exige (but didn't really fully believe or appreciate it).

I was sent this blog post from 2008 on Tesla.com that really helps me appreciate how different the cars are.

I searched for Mythbusters and no hits so apologies if this is somewhere in the long-forgotten past.
