Musk Plans Tesla Roadster in Supercar Colours

Tesla Roadster to get more paint options

  • A range of shades fitting of the car’s performance

  • Started offering special colours on original Roadster


Tesla is known for many things when it comes to advanced electric vehicles, but one of their superlatives has never really been paint. Its current models are largely limited to just few shades, with all but the most basic coming at an extra cost. Company CEO Elon Musk says that’ll change with the new Tesla Roadster that the company has planned.

As is usually the case for Musk, the announcement was a reply to a tweet (via Teslarati), asking about an orange colour on a rendering of a Tesla vehicle. Musk replied that “we will hace special colours for the new Roadster, as we did for the original.”

The original Lotus-chassis Roadster offered a wide range of colour choices including Very Orange, Electric Blue, Brilliant Yellow, and Racing Green. While the new Roadster, with Musk-announced features like jet thrusters, already has supercar-like styling, and an EV powertrain that should offer supercar levels of performance, bright colours are almost as important to the supercar as the styling itself. After all, how often do you see a boring colour Lamborghini, and just look at the array of shades Porsche offers 911 buyers.

The second-gen Roadster was originally announced back in 2015, and was first revealed in 2017 at a Tesla Semi event. In 2018, Musk announced the gas thrusters for the car for increased performance and manoeuvrability. Pre-orders for the car are already open but we’re still not sure when a production car is expected. Musk has suggested mid to late next year, after the Model S Plaid.
