    Agreed, very fair article and with no errors. Which is what I expect from Fred Lambert! :D

    Nothing new for TMC Roadster owners but good to see something like that online. I don't have time right now to watch the video embedded in the article but will look at it later.

    RE: the video, (sigh...) it's a shame there's music playing throughout the majority of it. For @ecarfan or any others short on time, here's a direct link to the only section of the video that properly depicts the car as it was meant to be experienced... all :10 of it. Feel free to watch the rest your own auditory peril. And don't get me started on the driving with hands @ 11 & 1... o_O

    Um, there is no such thing as a "2009" (Model Year) Roadster.
    And the very first Roadster (prototypes) were built in 2006/2007.

    Well, 2877lbs (+3.0 extra pack weight), so < 3,000-lb for those in nit-pick mode.
    I guess if you add driver weight...

    But yeah, nice article.
