Being widely tipped that the i8 Spyder will be unveiled in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, with production to commence not long after. It's expected to look similar to the concept car pictured below, which was unveiled back in 2012

I don't get that car. Why would anyone buy one over a Tesla? They look amazing admittedly.

And the Tesla is plain Jane, spent all the money on technology and got Russia to design it.

I saw one at close range a month ago BMW Doncaster, striking looking car but you need to be very flexible to get in and out.

Technically i agree with you. the Tesla seems to be a perfect car all around.

I'm sure im not saying anything you dont know. but not everyone wants a family car.

i'm sure if tesla did a coupe or GT Model S it would sell massively.

You're partly right...but never completely, I've noticed. HOWEVER, check out the specs on both cars and even you'd agree the i8 is never going to sell well.

I'm always right , your judgement is a little askew.

My vision for Tesla is when they produce a mass market car, say $50k plus and have agreements is place with the servos so that you can pull in and recharge or change a battery in the time it takes to fill up.

When the agreements are in place with Caltex, Shell and BP THEN it will not only take off ...but take over....., no more oil no more pollution.

They reckon it will look like the concept but surely it's more likely to look like the coupes lingering in showrooms, but with a folding roof.
