Maybe the Tesla S will be replacing the Roadster?

What they hey, the more electrics the better....looks like Tesla may be planning to phase out the Roadster once the S hits the showrooms....makes sense since the sales of the S should be much higher than the Roadster due to price points and they may well be getting a kickback from Lotus to boot.

Anyone else misinterpret this bit of the title:

Not their first electric car outing

Let's not forget that Lotus developed the chassis for the Sinclair C5 way back in the early 80's - way ahead of the curve.

YEAY!

Huzzah! Another electric sports car never to be produced. Way to go!

Meanwhile still on my wishlist: Station wagon large enough for a family with two children to go on vacation with. A decent engine would be nice (I could live with 120kW AWD), but two weeks worth of luggage and the stroller are a priority.

That's no good - it'll run out of juice after 21 minutes at full throttle, which will probably get you about 50 miles down the autobahn.

Then what?

After 21 minutes of full-throttle, this thing will be approaching the sound-barrier, and can free-wheel the rest of the journey .
