In 2010, Tesla started its journey in the automotive industry with the Tesla Roadster. We might think you missed the boat then, but now you still have a chance to strike by finding three brand new copies.
Today, Tesla is a modest brand with popular electric cars like the Model 3 and Model Y, but the Americans started in 2010 with the Tesla Roadster. The open sports car was sold in a very limited edition of 2500 units and had to produce at least one ton.
A customer from China decided to jump in and immediately ordered three: a red and orange Roadster Sport, as well as a second orange Roadster in basic equipment. Roadsters were shipped to China, but the buyer decided not to take Teslas for unknown reasons.

Awayschool at the port
Now it’s 13 years later and three Roadsters can still be found untouched in a container that was hidden somewhere in a Chinese port. Unfortunately, storage costs are well paid by the owner. The same owner now shows Three Roads through Gruber Motor Company – an American company that specializes in the repair and restoration of Tesla Roadsters.
Not without risk
But potential purchases are not risky. According to Gruber Motor Company, it is not known if all parts are available. It is also unclear if the battery packs are still showing signs of survival after 13 years of standing. The number of kilometers the cars have traveled is unknown, although Gruber takes 0 due to the new condition of the Roadsters. If the Roadsters are not sold by mid-May, they will be shipped to the United States. In that case, Gruber Motor Company will fully check the technical condition.
The bidding begins
The owner prefers to sell the Roadsters as a set, but may be tempted to take them apart for the right amount. If you want to bid, now is your chance, as the buyer is only open to bidding for a limited time. Three people have already made an offer: one of 150,000 euros for all three, two between 70 and 76 mille for the Red Roadster Sport only. We are curious to know the final price of these Roadsters in absolute concours condition…
