The Silicon valley-based car maker Tesla is working on the second generation Roadster, to be launched in three years time.
Tesla has been losing money for as far as we remember, but they believe they have changed the auto industry and for that reason alone, they should soldier on. They do have a point. Before Tesla nobody really cared about electric cars.
The next Tesla Roadster will no longer be based on the Lotus Elise. Instead it will be based on a “third-generation platform”, a shortened version of what the Tesla S sedan is built upon. After the recent feud with Top Gear over the review of the Roadster, they apparently are done with anything British!
The new platform will spawn other models as well, including a 3-Series rival to supplement the Model S range.
