The Need for Speed

Tesla4Fast, sleek and luxurious, the rare 2010 Tesla Roadster Sport is one of Elon Musk’s first electric car series and has revolutionized the automotive industry. This is the first time in history that a car has been available at the Destin Charity Wine Auction, and this one was worth the wait!  

If you are the lucky winner, you will get to drive your newest acquisition to the picturesque, coastal village community of Watersound Origins to kick off your two-night stay in a one-bedroom condo in the WaterSound Beach GateHouse.  

This incredible sports car generates 288 horsepower and 295 pounds per foot of torque and can achieve 0-60 in a neck-snapping 3.7 seconds. The 2010 Tesla Roadster Sport will cover over 200 miles on a single charge, and can be charged from the convenience of your own home. Its lithium-ion battery pack can fully recharge in just 3.5 hours. This Sport version features quicker acceleration, an adjustable suspension and very sticky tires. Competitors to the Roadster Sport include the Porsche 911 and Audi R8. This vehicle seamlessly combines the performance of a high-end sports car with the environmental-friendliness of an all-electric drivetrain that emits zero emissions. 

With its chassis built by Lotus and body made of carbon fiber, the Roadster is approximately the size of a Lotus Elise. This one-of-a-kind collectible has accrued less than 5,000 miles and sold for more than $100,000 when purchased in 2010.

Generously donated by The St. Joe Community Foundation, Inc., one of the two vehicles showcased here will be auctioned off this April. Voting for the winning vehicle is being held at Watersound Origins and will conclude on April 15. The results will be released on April 16 at dcwaf.org and an addendum noting the final vehicle will be provided at your seat in the auction tent.  

Let the bold design of this revolutionary vehicle inspire you to do good.
