The famous electric Roadster that launched the Californian brand Tesla will stop its carrier later this year, with the production of the last units on the 2500 planned.
Despite the Model S
, Tesla will probably need an iconic product, a top of range model.
Elon Musk just announced that a third generation Roadster, after the 2.0 and 2.5, will be launched in 2014.
The new roadster will be develloped entirely in-house and based on a shortened platform of the Model S, which will also be used for other projects like the BlueStar or like Elon Musk says "cars like a 3 series"
“This platform will spawn a range of cars in the next four to five years,”
“It’ll be a more mass-market platform for cars like a 3-series as well as the new Roadster. These cars will supplement the Model S range.” Elon Musk
About the other models of the brand the Model S will land next year followed by the Model X, which will be revealed soon, and probably a convertible based on the Model S.
