THE TESLA ROADSTER

Named after Nikola Tesla, a genius who, more than 100 years ago at the dawn of the electric age, invented alternating electrical current, the radio, and the AC motor, among other things, Elon Musk's Tesla Motors has made quite an impact on the automobile industry and the cars of today. Introduced at the 2006 San Francisco Auto Show, the Tesla Roadster was Musk and teams first car, and first highway legal serial all-electric car to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production all-electric car to travel more than 200 miles per charge. The first 100 Tesla Roadsters sold out in less than three weeks, and general production began on March 17, 2008, with just 500 of these first-generation Roadsters to be built. The Tesla Roadster marked the beginning of an era, and remains a very sporty and entertaining car to drive.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Having covered fewer than 10 miles at the time of cataloging, this Tesla Roadster is essentially a brand new car! The Roadster has lived its entire life with its one and only owner in New Mexico. This Tesla is highly optioned with premium white paint, a solar guard windshield, the $9000 carbon-fiber exterior package—including a rear wing diffuser, nose splitter, and roll bar all made of the lacquered super-fabric, $4,000 adjustable suspension, the $6000 Executive Leather package with red leather-wrapped door sills to match the seats, the $3000 electronics upgrade including a stereo with navigation and seven-speaker system, and $3,200 carbon fiber hardtop. After checking almost every option box, the total cost of the vehicle came to $140,350.

Just weeks ago, the car was serviced and updated by a Tesla Ranger, ensuring that the vehicle is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. A very similar Tesla Sport Roadster fitted with the more recently available Falcon Heavy Rocket option that increases the power to about 5.13 million pounds of thrust, became the first car in orbit and is currently headed toward deep space with Starman at the wheel.
