Tesla Roadster review! Today I'm reviewing an original 2008 Tesla Roadster, which is the cool Tesla before Tesla became a huge global success. I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the Tesla Roadster, and there are a LOT of them! I'm also going to drive the Tesla Roadster, and I'll review the driving experience of the Tesla Roadster.

You wanna disable your Airbag in case of a crash/ emergency. That it does not blow up in your face, when you try to rescue the driver. first aid class told me that. Gas cars dont have that, because you can kill the airbag with turning off the ignition.

Taking a guess he, the lock beep corresponds to the syllables; 1 beep for "lock", 2 for "unlock"

I think even if an exact car like this was produced today, the lack of technology could be excused for this car being more of a lightweight, stripped down, drivers car

Let's talk about why risk matters. The Highway Transportation System, or HTS, is made up of many different types of people, vehicles, and roadways. You have the most control over your safety within the system. Risky behavior is not just extremely annoying and rude, it puts other road users in the system in serious danger as well. The good news is, you can greatly reduce your risk of a collision by learning how to navigate the system like a pro and by using safe skills to reduce your risk. So you're on the right track. This course, along with solid behind the wheel practice, will prepare you with the skills and safety habits to help you take control of your own and others' safety. Risk Factors Let's be real. A certain amount of risk while driving is unavoidable. After all, you're driving a two-ton block of steel on wheels at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour (mph)! But seriously, what are some of the most common risk factors for young drivers, and what safe skills can you practice to reduce those risks? 6 Common Risk Factors for Young Drivers and Your Safe Skills Response Inexperience Teen passengers Distractions Risky driving Impaired driving Driving at night 1. Inexperience Inexperience Yup, it's nothing personal, but think about it, would you be expected to play Mozart the first time you picked up a violin? Snowboard on a black diamond run without falling on your rump a few thousand times on the kiddy slope? Not a chance. Driving is a skill, and just like any skill, it takes practice. SAFE SKILLS Practice defensive driving habits with an adult or driving instructor in the car as much as possible. Assess your fitness to drive before you get in the car. This means your mental, physical and emotional well-being, including whether you've had enough sleep. This is so important, we've devoted an entire module to it in this course! 2. Teen passengers Teen passengers The image shows a driver distracted by teen passengers. Let's face it, your friends are distracting-they want to joke around, or show you something on their phone, when you've got one job to do-drive safely. It's up to you to have the maturity to take control. An important note, know where you fit into Florida's Graduated Driver's Licensing (GDL), because you may have restrictions on when and with whom you drive. SAFE SKILLS Make sure you and your friends are buckled up, and they understand that they should not distract you while you're driving. Make sure someone you trust and who is reliable sits in the front seat to help with directions or other tasks, so you can focus on your drive. 3. Distractions Distractions The image shows a driver distracted by a cell phone. These include cell phone calls and texting (even hands-free!), as well as personal distractions, like grooming and eating behind the wheel-ewwww. Don't discount the danger of this risk. While knowledge and skills are important, attitudes and their corresponding behaviors play a larger role in driver safety! SAFE SKILLS Focus. Drive and only drive when you are behind the wheel. Dock your phone on the dashboard if you must use a GPS. Put your phone on Do Not Disturb (DND) or Driving Mode. Put the phone in the glove compartment if you find you cannot resist touching it. (You know who you are!) 4. Risky driving Risky driving The image shows a driver taking a hand off the steering wheel to reach for an object in the back seat. You may know somebody like this-they drive like they're auditioning for a racing movie: speeding, tailgating, not using signals … SAFE SKILLS Consider others. Drive for their safety, as well as your own. Use the defensive driving skills you learn in this course, such as adjusting your speed to road conditions and using proper signaling, whenever you're on the road. 5. Impaired driving Drinking and driving The image shows a person rejecting an alcoholic drink while their car keys are in front of them. Drinking alcohol impairs the very skills you need to be a safer driver. Also, don't think pot is any different-it screws up your spatial perception and several other essential brain functions. Even an over-the counter medication could be a problem-any substance that affects your fitness to drive can be dangerous. A driver may be impaired by a drug, but a driver can also be impaired by strong emotions, illness, or fatigue. An impaired driver is an unsafe driver. SAFE SKILLS Drive sober. If you or your friends decide to have even one drink, plan ahead for a ride so you all get home safely. If you're sleepy, angry, or have a fever, don't drive. Your driving skills can be impaired just as bad by being fatigued as they can by being intoxicated. 6. Driving at night Driving at night The image shows a driver concerned about the increased risk of driving at night. It's plain and simple: you just can't see as well at night, so you have to be extra careful. SAFE SKILLS Turn your lights on between dusk and dawn. Drive more slowly at night. Expand your space cushion, especially in bad weather or challenging road conditions. Adjust your rearview mirror for night use. Use your low and high beams appropriately: the law says you must turn on your low beams from sunset to sunrise, and whenever visibility is low. Do not use high beams within 300 ft of a vehicle ahead of you going the same direction, or within 500 ft of an oncoming vehicle. Always wear your prescriptive glasses or your contact lenses if you need to, and have an extra pair in the car along with lens solution.

A good friend of mine had a roadster signature edition and its crazy how different the interior was, most notably there was no "shifter", just buttons. sadly he sold it, but hes still repping tesla with a model S and his wife drives a model X. that roadster got me many a speeding ticket every time he would let me take her for a spin! great review

"Warranty void if seal is broken." No, I'm sorry that's not the case, thanks to the Magnusson-Moss Act of 1975. Nice try, though. Tesla yet again tries to perpetuate the fears of normal car users.

Yep, and another reason Tesla isn't actually "Cool". Not then, not when they exploit child miner that die in collapsed cobalt hand dug holes, not when Elon tweets "Well coup who we want to coup.", and not now. My favorite part is his rags to riches story starting out with emerald mines and how everyone acts like he's a genius.

But there is motor rpm just like every other electronic motor ever made so it's confusing that you say there isn't because that is completely wrong. Just check out the Formula E Dragon Racing Spark SRT_01E and you will notice it has a 5 speed sequential gearbox that has a wait for it..........Digital Tachometer... With more research you will find that there are many electric vehicles that have transmissions also and that makes the needs for tachometers.

I remember seeing it in a sticker album, with the list price being 150k euros. And thought it was overpriced because it could only hit 200 km/h. In retrospect you could probably get a Nissan GTR for that price that would accelerate as good and with a higher top speed.
