    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.

    Not their first electric car outing

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

    "a 200kW electric motor connected to a 71kWh battery"

    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 .
