Tesla is currently focusing all its attention on the Model S. So much so that they can’t be bothered to make a decision whether or not they are going to make a new Roadster. It makes perfect sense, of course, what with the Roadster being a troubled child since day one, and the Model S being possibly one of the most important cars of all time.
In fact Tesla just announced they have boosted the production of the Model S and will hit 400 units per week by December 2012, or 20,000 units per year. This amazing electric car has caused a stir in the automotive world ever since it was introduced with those handsome looks, great performance, and reasonable range. TIME Magazine recently included the Model S in it list of best inventions of 2012.
As for the Tesla Roadster, it is way down on the list of priorities. As mentioned the company is mainly focused on the Model S, and after that they are doing the Model X crossover, and there’s also a new mid-size sedan in the pipeline. Speaking to Autocar, George Blankenship, vice-president of sales and ownership experience, said: “It isn’t decided that we will build another Roadster, but that would be around the time we would look to have a real ‘halo’ model in the range.”
