    Hi,

    I posted this in the for sale section (mods please change anything here) but asking myself, or please point me to the threads, how far did UK and Lotus help the early Roadster come into being?

    The main Tesla site has quite a good history of section, what do the posters here know, as we don't seem to have a very good CPO/used programme for Roadsters here and I would love one.

    Just thought I would add some links to UK RHD Roadsters for sale at the moment. 3 from James Edition and 3 from Supervettura. I don't work for these guys at all just posting for any UK possible purchasers?

    I am stuck between wanting one, affording one, and the Model S. Our pricing seems to be quite a bit higher than US versions available but we have less inventory overall to choose from. Perhaps once the Model S lands UK side (in about 2015 at this rate) we will have more on the market as part exchanges.

    We have no CPO here, James Edition seems to be it.

    Also it is a shame it feels the UK is getting left behind here somewhat considering both the Roadster and the new Detroit Electric are based on Lotus platforms and Tesla used UK engineering at that early stage (am I correct here?), still.

    There is one LHD model here for £64,995 (about $96,000) thats the cheapest one.
