One aspect of the Roadster I have somewhat forgotten is the challenge of getting in and out of the car. When I first picked up the car, one of the explanations was how to actually get into the car!
The August 24, 2009 issue of the New Yorker has an article “Plugged In” that discusses Tesla, Musk and charging stations. Rick Rubin, the co-head of Columbia records, was going to wait to buy a roomier model S because he found the Roadster painful. The funniest quote from the article is “many people have found that levering themselves into the Roadster’s low cockpit calls to mind a prison break through a ventilation shaft.”
After driving the car for a while, the procedure to get in and out becomes automatic and more graceful. To get in the car, place your foot first, body second, and then swing the other foot over. Getting out is more straightforward and less rigid and eventually you can get out while carrying large objects. The body builds up a muscle memory eventually. But you will need to instruct your guests how to get in and out of the car.
