    I’ve searched and seen some size comparisons to the S, but am not able to visualize the size of the new roadster. Is it about the size of the model 3? Small as the new supra? Don’t tell me it’s as small as a Miata or Alpha Romero? Compared to other supercars, this seems much smaller than a Huracan? I was hoping for the size of a NSX or R8. Mclaren is probably the smallest I could tolerate.

    It'll be bigger than the original Roadster, that's for sure, and I've managed with that for 10 years. I'm more worried it'll be too big, not too small. They might need a lot of room to fit in all those batteries.

    I did a very un-scientific measurement using a pic of Roadster at a car show last year. It had a license plate on it in the photo so I extrapolated from that and, in short, it seems like it’s as wide as the S. Can’t speak to the length of it though.

    Alfa Romero, whatever. I just didn’t want to spend $250k on if it’s small like their 4C spider.

    Considering they're both 1:18 scale that's actually quite useful, thanks! You don't happen to also have the Model 3 1:18 model, do you? Would love to see the Roadster model next to that as well.

    New Roadster is planned with two small back seats (unless you order the Space X package with rocket boosters).

    I have the scale model S and roadster, and I think it is ‘approximately’ 1:18. But not accurate enough to give you more than just a rough estimate.
