n conjunction with the opening of its two newest stores in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Newport Beach, California, Tesla has unveiled the fourth major production iteration of its only current product, the Roadster. Dubbed the Roadster 2.5, in proper Southern California fashion, the revised electric sports car gets a nose job
and fanny lift.
Up front, the latest Roadster gets a reshaped grille similar to the one found on the Model S that reflects Tesla's design language going forward. At the back, a new rear bumper now incorporates a diffuser element, although it
's not known if it
actually generates any downforce. Inside, the seats have again been reworked to improve comfort, and the finish of surfaces has been improved to better reflect the car's price tag. A seven-inch touchscreen display with a backup camera is available as an option, and it
should viewed as a welcome addition for Roadster drivers to protect that new rear end.
There don't appear to be any powertrain changes to the 2.5 and no information about pricing has been revealed. Some of the upgrades will apparently be available to current owners that want to retrofit their cars, however. Want to learn more?
