While the Model 3 is expected to arrive later this year, Tesla will be rolling out the new Model Y CUV in 2019. Given that, how would Tesla even think of introducing yet another new generation Model Y Roadster real soon? Very unlikely, right? But just for fun, allow us to share with you a drop top convertible ahead of its time. After all, the CEO himself confirms that the new Tesla Roadster will be “some years away.”
Introducing the 2nd generation Tesla Roadster as rendered by aspiring industrial designer, Vinicius Buch of Brazil. Barely resembling anything we see on the road, Buch’s futuristic Roadster Y at least has no side mirrors. It’s something that we’ve heard Tesla is set to implement in the next five years.
Truth is, Tesla hasn’t given away much info about its upcoming Roadster model, but from what we’ve heard, the EV startup is aiming for a 0-60 miles per hour sprint time in less than 2 seconds. And for the convertible to achieve such outstanding pace, a set of street legal tires would also be necessary.
Off to the latest rendering, the Behance designer seems to have a very futuristic vision of the EV convertible. One of the images show four small arrows outside the door with a description that says “slide your finger to open”. Another picture of it shows the clutter-free dashboard that points to where the keyboard and touch screen are located. But frankly, we don’t see any, so we’re guessing those must be invisible or hidden away.
Moving along, there must be some sort of a windshield here that you can take off and put on as needed. And a very spacious trunk maybe? At any rate, the most obvious features are the charging port at the rear, the massive set of wheels, the daytime running lights in LED and the fiercely designed front fascia with an emblem that lights up when the power switch is on.
All in all, the 2nd generation Tesla Roadster will surely be a lot more practical than any of the concept creations that have been merely drawn on paper or should we say, digitally drawn at the computer. But it doesn’t mean to say that we’re not craving to see something like this on the road. In essence, the idea it has brought forward will serve as a viable inspiration for the future, though some of the hottest concepts as we know rarely make it into production.
