This month I have written a number of blogs about the past of Tesla and the cars that have given Tesla the opportunities to grow and develop their cars and technologies to deliver cars that are not cars but pieces of phenomenal technology.
The future is now and with it comes new and exciting opportunities for people of the world to choose incredible technology, just so happens to be a car.
I believe what Tesla has done is change the definition of what a car can be. They have made an industry wake up and look around as their customers move to the world of the technologically savvy car.
The introduction of the Cybertruck and the Model Y will help to continue to grow the footprint of supreme electric cars. The introduction of the these vehicles has sparked the imagination of the next generation of drivers.
Within the next month the Model Y will be delivered to new owners. This has been achieved 6 months ahead of time and with such precision and intent. Tesla is playing a new game that no one has been able to compete with. Fundamentally this is due to the fact that they are a tech company not car company.
These above images are of the Model Y demonstrate that Tesla’s have similar features like cargo space as traditional cars contain however it also brings amazing new features that no other traditional car company could conceive.
The future of Tesla is well in hand and the innovation that they continue to bring will not be outdone for many years. The comparison to Apple when it first introduced the iPhone and the couple of years after that has strong correlation to where Tesla is right now.
The recent ascendance of the share price gives credence to the fact that the short sellers have been controlling the narrative for too long and now Tesla is finally getting its time in the sun.
One of the most compelling things about Tesla is it is not just a car company it is a tech company, and this is demonstrated when you consider the number of products they have and the potential they have to offer into the future.

This list is just the start and I can tell you that Elon Musk will continue to grow ideas and innovative minds to produce future products that will continue to push the boundaries and lead to the achievement of his mission statement for Tesla.
Transition the world to renewable energies and transportation.
Tesla released the original roadster in 2008 and with it the beginning of the evolution of the auto industry. The original Roadster is quite different from today’s Tesla’s but without it the Tesla of today would not exist.
The original roadster was a one of a kind marvel that was ahead of its time. It allowed people who had the means to own a car that allowed them to experience the future of a sports car. This was a pivotal step to providing funds to allow tesla to grow and develop what we know as the Model S today.
Since then they have become cars of legend. Sort after by the Tesla fold and a wonder when driven by those not aware of what electric cars can do. They performed ahead of their class and gave insights to the future Tesla company.
Of course, their road to completion was not without its issues. Delays that were long due to changes with design and development. Tesla also had to contend with money challenges and perception that electric cars where not even close to the combustion engine.
But here we are many years later with Tesla being a global phenomenon and the roadster being the car that started it all.
So, what’s next for the original roadster and what does this car mean to the future of Tesla. The original roadster in recent times has started to get some love from Tesla after many years of being ignored. They now have the ability to get serviced and parts directly from tesla where earlier on in the last decade that service was superseded after the Model S and Model X became the champions of the Tesla Cause. However, they have now been welcomed back and are improving the life and functions of the original tesla as they become to be considered classic cars of the electric car world.
So, is this all there is for the Roadster name? The answer is no as the New Roadster was announced in late 2017 at the SEMI reveal when it rolled of the back of the truck trailer to the surprise of everyone. Just as the introduction of the Original roadster had been small the opposite could be said of the new roadster.
The car looked as if it was from the future and the specifications made it one of the fastest, sports cars ever conceived. As Elon musk has said “this is a smack down” to all super cars around the world.
The design of the car is beautiful and has become iconic amongst electric car owners as the benchmark for any future electric sports car. As the original was to help grow the company the new roadster is to prove that electrification is here to stay and will outperform, out innovate and inspire the next generation of car buyers globally.
The future of the roadster name is bright and 2020 will be the year that this car excites those that have purchased their ticket to ride.
