Elon is quoted as saying the next Roadster is coming in 2015 after the Gen III (BlueStar).
Tesla debuts Model X electric crossover - Autoweek
Whether or not Gen-III makes 2015, it's clear that the next gen Roadster will be after that.
Did the re-sale value of the existing Roadsters just pop? Will the remaining overseas models sell out more quickly? Is this good news for existing Roadster owners and bad news for everyone else who wants an EV sports car?
Or, am I over-reacting?
After Model X, Tesla To Sell Cheaper Electric; 2015 Roadster To FollowAs Inside Line reports, Elon Musk aspires to have the Gen 3 Tesla to market in “early 2015,” which is nearly one year earlier than originally projected. If you guessed something else would have to be delayed, you’d be correct.
In this case, the victim will likely be the next Tesla Roadster, which was originally penciled in to debut in 2014 as a 2015 model. With Tesla focused on the launch of the Gen 3, don’t expect to see a new Roadster until after the Gen 3's 2015 debut.
In the Q4 conference call, Elon said that they've decided their technology has advanced enough to go to 3rd generation now, so they're pushing back the next generation Roadster and doing the $30k car first.
The question I would like answered is when will we see the follow-on to the Roadster?

Very funny. I'm not talking about the Model S. The next Roadster is what I was trying to get at.
Next Roadster and a compact class sedan will be based on Gen III platform. Elon surprised many of us with the announcement that the sedan will be brought to market before the roadster.
