Elon just tweeted again about the new Roadster. His tweet stating that it will be a true convertible. This is all great, and got my heart beating quickly, but it raises a few questions. First, would most Roadster owners be interested in trading in their existing car for the new one (assuming they could afford it)? My gut feeling is that the new Roadster will be in the $150k price range, putting it in the ballpark of the Audi R8. But, that's just a random guess. Maintaining the existing Roadsters is continuing to be an ongoing problem for Tesla. They don't want to abandon the existing owners, both for public-relations reasons and, I guess, just because Elon is a good guy. That said, it would make Tesla's life a lot easier if they didn't have to keep maintaining these old vehicles. My hope, is that they would offer a special program, giving preferential treatment to existing Roadster owners if they trade-in for the new one. Of course, they have never said anything like this, so this is just purely hope and speculation on my part. That said, if we keep repeating the suggestion strongly enough, maybe it will filter up to the executives at Tesla and become part of their discussion. If they would even announce something like 'existing Roadster owners will be first in line for the new one so long as they trade in their vehicle', that would definitely factor into my decision making process.
