Garage Queens – Tesla Roadster Sport: W25th Street, NYC

January 19th, 2010 by Stu

I am convinced that automakers hold quarterly brainstorm sessions where product planning and bean counting executives get loopy on highballs and spout off crazy premiums to tack onto today’s special edition models. Take this Tesla Roadster Sport for example – it has a bit more grunt courtesy of a hand wound stator, an adjustable suspension set up for more hard core handling, some unique badging to rise above plebian non sport models and a slick set of black forged alloy wheels wrapped in more aggressive rubber. Certainly the content sounds meaningful, but is improved handling and a 0.2 second improvement from 0 to 60 mph (3.7 seconds in the Sport) worth $19,500 more than the base Roadster?

Audi TTS – W25th Street

Audi finally got around to offering a hotter “S” version of their TT sports car for the 2009 model year. It sits alongside sister Audi S-line vehicles like the S4/RS4, S6/RS6 and S8. Seen here in “Sprint Pearl Blue”, this TTS looks decidedly more exotic than its plebeian TT sibling thanks in part to the menacing ground effects, 19-inch seven-twin-spoke wheels, and slightly lowered ride height. The 265HP turbocharged engine under the hood doesn’t hurt either.
