Behold: the 2019 BMW i8 Roadster – a petrol-electric hybrid that tops out at a pedestrian 120km/h for a 53km range in e-Drive ‘clean’ mode.

With full greenhouse gas blasters engaged, the top speed rises to 155mph and the roadster will accelerate to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds.

Still, it’s awful pretty.

Concept designs for the officially unannounced (but apparently due for release in 2019) Tesla Roadster Y by Brazilian designer Vinicius Buch.

 Founder Elon Musk has hinted that the successor to the original Model S P100D roadster (which ceased production in 2012) will have an even more impressive sub-2 second 0-100km/h time.

And some kind of windscreen/roof combination, presumably.
