Tesla unveils new Roadster 2.5

If I were rich and wanted an electric car, the Tesla Roadster would be it. This thing promises a long driving range and has performance that rivals that of many gasoline powered vehicles. Tesla has announced the latest version of its Roadster dubbed Roadster 2.5.

This is the fourth update for the Roadster and the changes are limited to trim. You can now get an optional 7-inch touchscreen nav system, a new front fascia and rear diffuser, better seats, improved interior sound reduction, and new power control hardware.

That last bit is designed to allow the owner to drive spiritedly in hot climates. New forged wheels in black or silver colors are available as well. Pricing to go with the upgrades isn't offered.
