    Any detail available on the suspension setting. Assuming air but wonder if its the same flavor as MS/X.

    I hope not. The air suspension on the S is fine for touring, but any hard driving and it's too wishy washy and slow to react. They need a much more stable suspension if they're planning on 250mph.

    I believe someone posted recently that in one of the new Roadster test drive videos posted online the test driver mentioned that the car was sprung very tight. Not surprised, I would think that would be necessary due to the relatively high weight of the car because of that huge battery pack.

    So I’m guessing the car probably has a pretty stiff ride and you are going to feel the bumps in the road. A lot like the original Roadster. :cool:
