Tesla didn't reveal horsepower or kilowatt figures, but said wheel torque is 10,000 Newton-meters, or 7,375 pound-feet. That translates to a quarter-mile time of 8.8 seconds.
Perhaps just as impressive, this four-seat EV will have a driving range of 620 miles on a single charge. Range anxiety, begone! The new Tesla Roadster will also feature a trick glass roof that stows in the trunk.
The car won't come cheap, though. Its base price will be $200,000, though hard-hustling Tesla owners can score one for free through the automaker's referral program. Just to reserve it will cost $50,000. Tesla will launch the Roadster with a Founder's Series model, priced at $250,000 and limited to 1,000 examples.
Expect to hear more about the next-gen Tesla Roadster in the near future. For now, take a gander in the image gallery above.
