2012 Tesla Roadster 2.5


In the world of sports car, two hundred eighty-eight horses may seem ridiculous. Four hundred Newton meters of torque as well. If we compare these values ​​with those attached to a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet - which develops 500 hp and 700 Nm - we say that the Tesla Roadster Sport does not play in the same category. Yet! Its technical announced an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, exactly the same time as the German sports.

Accelerating quickly is one thing, giving pleasure to the driver on back roads is another. This could concern that more than 450 kg of batteries not incurred in the agility of the Roadster. Placed behind the seats all the way up the car, they guarantee a weight distribution close to that of a mid-engine berlinetta. In addition, the chosen basis (the aluminum chassis of the Lotus Elise) is showing slight, the total mass is contained in 1,235 kg. Approximately 400 kg less than a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet. QED.

From the outside, the Tesla takes its place with confidence. His pace dramatically (and silent when it moves) no lack of challenge. Since its recent restyling, his style has become more finesse. Particularly at the front, where it adopts the radiator grille of the sedan Tesla Model S , designed by Franz von Holzhausen, former Mazda. Moreover, it will simply following the Roadster at its output next year.
