    The first 100 Roadsters required a full $100K deposit. For the second group of 100 Roadsters, the deposit was $75K.

    Not only that, when they put down a $100k deposit, Tesla had never delivered a single car. The money was put down on faith in what the future could be.

    Those original Roadster buyers were an amazingly prescient group!

    Note: I am not an original Roadster owner. I was late to the party. But better late than never. ;)

    This is awesome. I used to mess around with the design studio for hours when the 2.5 was out...so many gorgeous configurations. Any way you can bring that one back?

    I resemble that remark. Early 2012.:D

    Very cool to see this again from c. 2007... used to look and could only dream at the time. Great to see what's been accomplished in the past decade. Thanks to all the early Roadster customers for helping make it possible!
