Description

Is this your first time renting with Turo? If so, use this discount code when signing up (https://turo.com/referral?code=154749rjv2FG) to get $25 off your first rental. In my opinion, the original Tesla Roadster is the most awesome car Tesla has made so far. A car that changed the view of what an electric vehicle could be. The Roadster provides a truly a race-car like experience with tight suspension and handling and instant torque. One of only 2700 made. This car is a rare treat you will not want to miss! •2010 Rocket Red Roadster •0 - 60 in 3.9 seconds •Heated leather seats •Air conditioning •Race-car like handling and ride •Level 1 & 2 charging adapters included. J1772, Tesla Wall Connector, and household outlet adapters included. NO SUPERCHARGING CAPABILITY. •Cargo space is extremely limited.  •Approximately 160 mile range per charge (your mileage will likely be less as you'll constantly be punching it to feel that awesome acceleration!). Room for two people and a very tiny amount of stuff in the trunk. This is a fun car but not a luxury modern Tesla. Please read the FAQ below to ensure you are clear on what type of car you're renting, its limitations, and things you will want to know before renting.

Faqs

  • How do I charge the Roadster?
    Car has a J1772 connector, a NEMA 5-15 connector, and a Roadster to Tesla converter that allows you to charge at a Tesla wall connector installed at many hotels. This car has NO SUPERCHARGING capability, however. Typical charge rates with a J1772 connector range from 20 - 40 miles of range per hour of charge. Plugging in at home will get you approximately 3 miles of range per hour of charging.
  • Is there an age limit to rent this car?
    Unfortunately there is. Turo imposes a 30-year-old age limit for this car (see https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/203991070-Age-restrictions )
  • How much does charging cost?
    Commercial charging stations vary in price. Some are free while others can charge up to $10 for 30 minutes. I recommend downloading the PlugShare app for your smartphone or visiting http://plugshare.com PlugShare has information on all charging stations including locations and costs.
  • Can I have additional drivers?
    Absolutely! There is no charge for additional drivers, but additional drivers must complete the registration and approval process with Turo, and be noted in the rental notes for the car. More info here: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/203990880-Are-my-passengers-allowed-to-drive-How-do-I-add-a-driver-
  • Can I eat or smoke in the car?
    NO. I try to preserve the luxury for others, and that includes keeping the car smelling fresh. Smoking or eating in the car is not allowed. A steep cleaning fee of $500 will be assessed for smoke and $250 for food smells.
  • How full does the battery need to be when I return the car?
    Car should be returned with 80% battery or greater (128 miles or greater). Optionally, you can return vehicle with battery as low as 15% for only $15. Vehicle should never be returned with less than 15% battery.
  • How far can I drive with a full battery?
    Your range depends upon how you drive (heavy foot?), the terrain (lots of hills, head wind, etc.), the outside temperature (super cold or hot weather gives shorter range), just like a gasoline or diesel-powered car. The maximum range for this car is about 160 miles, but your range may vary up or down from that. In cold weather, the absolute maximum range is 120 miles.
  • Tickets & Tolls
    Given the large number of tickets and tolls renters have gotten, I am fixed to charge a $20 processing fee to handle the paperwork associated with tickets and unpaid tolls. Please don’t get a ticket and pay all tolls.
  • WARNING for Tall People
    If you were over 6‘1“, I do not recommend renting this car. This is a small car, and if you are really tall, you will be very cramped.
  • May I take the Roadster through a mechanical car wash?
    No. The Roadster may be hand-washed only. The harsh chemicals of no-touch car washes can damage the finish and the brushes on touch car washes introduce small scratches in the paint surface. If you must wash the vehicle, hand wash only with clean water, gentle soap, and a very clean wash mitt.

Joe did a great job prepping us for the trip. The car was immaculate and really an amazing ride. Joe was timely with the drop-off, super flexible with the return and supportive throughout the day. We would definitely rent from him again

Joseph was a good host that allowed us to collect the car from a convenient spot close to where we were visiting. Since he was out of town his colleague was able to meet us and drop the car. Drop off was made easier as it was close to his colleague's residence. A genuinely great experience and we will gladly recommend him! Best Regards, Mandy

Once again, Joe is the best renter on Turo. Great car, great service. Thank you so much for an awesome Tesla experience!

Joseph made renting the Roadster out an extremely simple and memorable experience! He’s a true Tesla enthusiast and all around nice chap! Upon pick-up he thoroughly explained everything about the car. I will certainly be renting with him again. Thanks Joesph!

One of the coolest sports cars ever and one of the coolest car owners on here. Great experience all around with Joe, and I plan to recommend his rentals to everyone!
