We drove the Tesla along the hidden roads on the top oif the San Francisco Peninsula. Tesla commissioned its own body design, although the look is marred by lots of cutlines. 2008 Tesla Roadster Convertible Exterior Actor George Clooney was not happy with his 2008 Tesla Roadster and his remarks about it have gone viral. A gaping front air intake provides cooling air for the electronics that make the Tesla go. 2008 Tesla Roadster Convertible Exterior Not a single panel of the Tesla's largely carbon-fiber body is shared with the Lotus Elise on which it is based. The Tesla Roadster is truly a sports car, more for fun than for going to the store. Lotus-engineered chassis, suspension and steering impart road-hugging performance. Rear view from the cockpit is obscured a bit by flying buttresses that smooth out the roof line. And look, no tailpipes! Electric powertrain means all torque, all the time, and endows the Tesla Roadster with scenery-blurring acceleration. Lucky Europeans will be able to spend their strong Euros on the Tesla Roadster soon; the electric car is bound for Europe next year. Martin Eberhard, deposed co-founder of Tesla Motors, blogs extensively about his driving impressions of the Tesla Roadster. Eberhard took his Tesla out for about 1,000 miles in the two weeks since the company delivered it to him. Now in production! The banner says it all. Eberhard praised the roadster's never-ending torque, instant response, nimble suspension, tight steering after taking the Founder's Series car out for a spin. Meanwhile, in England, Prince Michael of Kent had a go with a Tesla Roadster and admired its zero-emissions technology, the company said. The Tesla Roadster started production on Monday, but production will proceed in a deliberate and controlled manner, says the company's CEO. Again showing it is working from a different model than the traditional auto company, Tesla Motors will make house calls to fix a problem with its 2008 Roadster EV's rear hub flange bolts. The Tesla Roadster (pictured) is another step closer to reality now that the NHTSA has granted an airbag standard waiver for three years. March 17 is the start-of-production date finally announced by Tesla Motors for its long-awaited electric Roadster. Tesla Motors says its electric roadster does the quarter-mile in 12.7 seconds. Eberhard has been out of the picture since a falling-out with the current management of the Tesla company, but he blogged that he was happy to get his own Tesla at last. Tesla delivered this Founder's Series Roadster to Martin Eberhard, co-founder of the electric-car startup.
