First post at TMC, though I am a regular lurker here and a member on the Tesla forums and also a Tesla investor. Excited about ordering my first Tesla next spring! I was wondering if any of the Photoshop masters would put the new style Model X nose cone on this roadster concept. I think with the new nose cone this Next Gen Roadster design would be extremely slick. Anyone interested? I tried... and hilariously failed. Managing a network is my skill, not Photoshop lol.

Haha nice JRP3. That's pretty much what my first try looked like! I gave it another go and came up with this, stole the model X headlights as well. I think it looks cool with them too.

What does everyone think the layout of the next roadster will be? Im hoping quad motors and a 2 speed transmission like the rimac(we need good acceleration past 90-100 in a 2 seat tesla halo car) but that's just me.

Interesting, I was going to correct you that Rimac used single speed gear reductions but just checked and see they now offer a two speed option.

When developing the original roadster, Tesla was initially going to release it with a two speed transmission, but it kept failing. They ultimately decided to make things simple and go 1 speed. I think it was a wise choice.

It seemed to be the only choice at the time, but it does limit top speed. If Rimac came up with a 2 speed that can handle the torque that's even better. Of course when you're charging almost $1million for a car you can engineer things to a different level.
