    I have searched the Tesla Marketplace for a 2010 and 2011 Roadster Sport and have not found one I Amin love with yet. Anyone out there know of others for sale? My email address is [email protected]

    The Roadster Sport 0-60 time is only 0.2 seconds faster than the standard Roadster. My advice is to find a good Roadster in a color combo you like and not focus on just the Sport version, as that really limits you when it comes to finding a Roadster.

    Right, but the Sport also offers adjustable suspension (which you could also add on to a standard Roadster). But agree not to just focus on one version over the other.

    Makes my heart glad to see Roadsters becoming a bit more scarce again ...

    Thanks for the feedback all. I have definately transitioned my thought pattern and now feel a 2011 model would best fit what I am looking for based on the upgrades made to the sound and comfort. Let me know if you know of any 2011's that become available.

    There are two *very* low-mileage, black-on-black, Roadster Sports on eBay at the moment:

    2.5, 6753 miles, $85K: Tesla : Roadster Sport
    2.0, 2121 miles, $75k: Tesla Roadster Sport | eBay

    The 2.5 is from a dealer in Texas who seems to move quite a few Roadsters; you would probably be able to negotiate a better price by dealing directly.

    200 miles? What's the story there? Has it been plugged in and in storage mode this entire time?
