Remember that the car needs more design updates before production. But we can get some ideas about the interior of the next-gen Roadster.

What we know about the new Roadster

The next-gen Roadster does seem to have rear fold down seats, and a tight but decent back seat area with a nice size hatch when folded down and a trunk when up, for a supercar. Roadster will start around $200,000 USD with well over 1,000 horses, and 620 miles range.

What is unknown about the Roadster

Unknown is how much of this space will give way to performance variants like the “Space X” package which will have booster thrusters, or what size the frunk will be.

Tesla Roadster needs a serious interior upgrade for production, including a dash, a screen, and a regulation steering wheel, not a Batmobile kind. It doesn’t even have side mirrors, old fashioned or camera kinds. Its design language will probably be updated, less Model S and more Model 3/Y.

The production of a Tesla Roadster is just a few months away. It goes on sale probably in the latter of 2020. What do you think about this 2-door Tesla?

This image was posted for discussion on Reddit.

Roadster's this rare image is from last week when Tesla brough the Roadster prototype to its Investor Autonomy Day.

Also see: It’s too late for the first generation Tesla Model S to get another variant, but I am hoping Tesla might consider a two door coupe variant for the next one.

The new Roadster is a super car, you don't take it to a furniture store and haul home your new furniture. And it's not a Grand Tourer (GT) to the point that will do long distance trips (luxury attributions are missing for that), where the additional space would be beneficial.
