Tesla Roadster 25 Rear Three Quarter
It might have once seemed like Elon Musk was content to quietly shoo the Tesla Roadster behind the curtain so as to not detract from the success of the Model S sedan, but Roadster owners are about to get the last laugh. Following up on an earlier Roadster 2.5 update (pictured) that brought new features and a revised look, this new 3.0 update is a major mechanical retrofit upgrade that will increase the Roadster's range to greater than 400 miles.
