The Tesla Roadster was the world’s first mass-produced, all-electric, high-performance sports car. While that may sound counterintuitive, test drivers assert that the Roadster lives up to the hype. The Tesla Roadster provides 100 percent of its available torque all of the time, from 0 to 14,000 rpm, allowing it to accelerate from standstill to 60 mph at breakneck speed. What’s more, depending on your driving style, it can go 160 to 220 miles without a recharge, maxes out at 125 mph, and doesn't require a single drop of gas. Sports performance aside, the environmental benefits alone are astounding. Those in the market for a thrilling track-tuned sports car can get similar or even greater performance specs and figures from European sports cars, but few can match the Roadster's quick delivery of torque, let alone its Earth-friendly engineering.
Presented in Glacier Blue with tan interior, the Roadster shows just a touch over 25,000 miles on the odometer with a clean, no-accident CARFAX. In June 2010 it was delivered new in Santa Barbara and has spent the most of its life in Southern California. Body, interior and all surfaces appear in very good condition with no issues, making this Tesla Roadster an attractive and practical sports car – without the need for gasoline. Included is the optional large, heavy-duty Tesla case with the matching factory convertible hardtop inside.
