I'm not talking about the costs for the Roadster pack. Even the Model 3 pack still costs more than $12k if you want a replacement pack (which is refurb). Tesla haven't quite reached their original goal yet in terms of lower battery costs.This isn't exactly a fair statement since the Roadster was made in such low quantity, there are minimal economies of scale involved. Just the labor to make a few hundred Roadster packs per year probably comes close to $12K. They would have to be hand-built at that quantity.
