Tesla unveils new white next-gen Roadster prototype at shareholder meeting

At the Tesla Semi unveiling last year, Tesla unveiled two next-generation Roadster prototypes: one red working prototype and another grey design model.

The automaker is now showing a new white Roadster model at its shareholder meeting.

Tesla is holding its 2018 shareholder meeting today.

It is starting at 2:30 PT, but people are already arriving and they have some cool products to look at before the meeting starts.

The company is showing the Model 3, Model S , Model X, a Tesla Semi prototype, but the new next-gen Roadster prototype is attracting most of the attention.

People at the event started to share images of the new electric supercar on social media (pictures via Ryaneager on Reddit and Tamino Wirz on‎ TESLA Owners Worldwide):

It’s not clear if it is a working prototype like the previously unveiled red one or a design model like the gray one unveiled last year.

It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but it doesn’t look like it has an interior, which leads me to believe that it’s not a working prototype.

The last time Tesla officially displayed a next-gen Roadster prototype was at Gigafactory 1 in March.

At the unveiling event in November, CEO Elon Musk claimed a list of insanely impressive specs for the new Roadster, including 0-60 mph in 1.9 sec, 620-mile of range, and more.

Tesla is trying to bring the vehicle to market by 2020 and make it the quickest and fastest production car on the market – and it just happens to be all-electric.

The automaker is currently taking reservations for the $200,000 base version with an insane $50,000 deposit and for the $250,000 Founders Series for an even more insane $250,000 deposit.
