Hey everyone! I'm 18 years old and have been a long time fan of the tesla motors company. I've been following the production of hte roadster since it first appeared in the media and im a very green type of person. I've followed hydrogen fuel cell production for as long as I can remember and was a fan of that technology back in the days, but now i've come to realize that electric may be the wave of the future. ^_^ I plan to purchase a roadster in maybe a decade maybe haha but i have a few doubts about the technology as of right now. So for the owners out there could ya help me out a bit? 1) Does the tesla roadster really have that 200+ mile range on full charge? Did any of you guys reach that mileage or can it only be achievable in "range" mode? 2) Does a full charge really only cost something around 3 dollars or is it a lot more? I plan to charge my very future tesla roadster on solar power haha ^_^ 3) This is an important question. How much does it cost to replace the battery pack. Did the tesla company give you owners any information about this? 4) I heard that at 100 thousand miles, the battery capacity will max out 80 percent. Its not bad, but when do you guys plan to replace your batteries? When it reaches 50 percent? 40 ? 30? 5) If you have the ac one, music on, and driving in race like conditions, do you notice a significant decrease in your range for driving? If so, by how much? Please elaborate. 6) Do you guys think that tesla would ever adopt a new sort of "battery technology" into thier cars that will force them to re-engineer and re-design the roadster and other models all over again thus making the current roadsters completely out of date for future repairs? 7) And finally a personal question. Do you owners somewhat feel that your roadsters may not be reliable enough to reach the end of the destination and back?
