I guess I'm being pedantic here (hey, I'm British so it goes with the territory), but the term 'roadster' means something very specific to me.
Not sure specifically what Musk said, but here is Wired from September citing him talking about 'a roadster follow-up':A roadster is an open (without a fixed roof or side weather protection) two-seat car with emphasis on sporty handling. While roadsters usually have soft-tops, retractable hard-tops are becoming more common.

Tesla need either (a) higher quantity lower margins, or (b) lower quantity higher margins. With the Roadster, they did (b), but I doubt if they will go that way again. My money is on a 5 seat coupe as the follow on to the roadster. Probably gonna be fast as hell.Musk said that this new sports car won’t be in the same vein as the Roadster, which was based off the Lotus Elise, and will have “supercar performance, but not supercar pricing.”
