    Which news blurb would you most like to see?

    1) Tesla Roadster production increases to 20 cars per week!
    2) WhiteStar unveiled!
    3) Toyota announces 2010 Prius will have plug-in as a standard feature!

    #1 in my opinion. Would really like Roadster production to be going smoothly before any real Whitestar talk.

    #3 would be nice, but I see it as unrelated

    #2 , #2 and then perhaps some #2 ....

    I'm not the least bit excited about the Whitestar... not at all :)

    Production rate increase. And as part of that, more widespread awareness and increased demand for the Roadster.

    Why can't it become Lotus's biggest selling car?

    While I'm also interested in the Whitestar. The kinks really need to be worked out of the Roadster production first. Whitestar is such a huge project with it's own set of promises and deliverables. If they start talking about Whitestar now, it will be perceived as vaporware. I'd prefer the perception be that they are focused on Job 1, and that is the Roadster.

    #1; for sure. More concepts [Whitestar] don't do anyone any good. Production should be key. Toyota's plug-in of 10 mile range is really pathetic IMO.

    Number 1 for sure.
    Number 2 is a hot potato. There a lot of risk that the company could get into trouble on Whitestar and not be able to produce enough roadsters. The last thing in the world that I want is for the company to go broke before they make a roadster for me.
    Number 3 has no personal interest, but a general interest.
