For the same reason they added the extra bracing (weight) underneath the new coupe too, which was required only for the Roadster.


Partly to counter the weight, the suspension was slightly changed.


These changes are very small though, and there is little practical difference. But you can feel the extra weight and less stiffness on Roadster, especially on track.

The extra battery power counters the extra weight, so the updated cars are no slower in reality.
But does that mean they are not really any faster either?

Does the OEM cover allow for folding of the mirrors when in use?

I'm looking to buy a genuine cover. Does anyone have one for sale? Happy to pay shipping globally...
