Tesla unexpectedly unveiled the second-generation Roadster last week. The Roadster, in prototype form, boasts impressive performance stats: 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, a top speed of over 250 mph and a 620-mile range. While it remains to be determined how and where it will be built, Tesla claims production will start in 2020. Here's a roundup of what people are saying about the Roadster's looks.
"There are a number of things that Tesla nailed with the new Roadster's design. First, it hits all the right sporty notes. It has big voluptuous fenders, a low nose, and a rakish fastback. Second, it finally makes Tesla's grille-less nose attractive. Not that the Model 3 is especially ugly, but it still looks like it's supposed to have a grille with the tall, upturned crease at the front. Without some kind of grille, it looks like a Hognose Snake. Finally, it manages to pull off a sporty look while retaining Tesla family cues, such as the aforementioned grille-less fascia, simple curves, and large greenhouse."
