Thanks for the vid. :smile:
It must be pretty new since it's taken from the LA store. The specs sound old, though.
Also, how do you like that random advert at the end?? It's like... ZING! Bait and switch!
Yeah I know Doug. I to was thrown by surprise when they busted out the radiator cap. I was like huh? LoL. Yes Doug, some specifications are a tad outdated. I noticed that myself. Tesla's new power electronics upgrade supposedly puts out 850 amperes at 223 Kilowatts of motor power or roughly 300 horsepower. Also, roadster 1.5 is now single speed. I'm all for that. Simple is better. Tesla claims the efficiency should increase somewhat. The vehicle may now accomplish 230 mpc and not the anticipated 220 mpc because of this upgrade. The motor has undergone slight changes in cooling design also to handle the increase in load current. The ac drive motor will still be air cooled of course. Doug correct me if I'm mistaken but you are a Tesla customer? When you get your supercar, give me the privalige of being passenger. If you would be so kind. I really need to get a ride in one of these things. I must. I must. :smile:
You have to admit that it was a clever marketing ploy though.
Heh, sadly no. I am but a humble Ph.D. student and don't think it would be prudent of me to try to buy a Roadster on my meager stipend. Would like one eventually, though. I'll be finishing up soon, and in a few years I will be looking to see what Tesla has to offer.
