Not a surprise this Next Generation Prototype Tesla Roadster is seen with the Semi Trucks as it was first publicly seen coming out of a Tesla Semi trailer last year at the unveil event of the Semi (video below).
A picture of the next generation Tesla Roadster has leaked from the Tesla Design Studio (larger version below) by @TheTeslaLife on Twitter a few hours ago, although the from the lighting in the surrounding makes it harder to determine the color of the vehicle but my guess would be Midnight Silver Metallic because the black Semi in the back ground also looks different.
1st generation Tesla Roadster was the first electric vehicle that Elon Musk and the Tesla team created in order to show the world that electric cars are practical and the future of mobility. Unfortunately last year several 1st gen Tesla Roadsters were burnt at a motor company along with an original T-zero EV.
Exactly one year ago Elon Musk announced that the next generation Tesla Roadster will be a convertible and he later unveiled it along with the Tesla Semi.

Last year Tesla created a new referral program that would allow Tesla owners to win the next generation Tesla Roadster — a couple of youtubers have already won the 2nd gen Roadster but are waiting for production to start in 2019.
The 2019 Tesla Roadster has a 200 kWh battery pack that can push the car from 0-60 in under 2 seconds — when in production it will be a great achievement by Tesla for a $200,000 production sports electric car that can deliver better performance than a million dollar gas guzzler.
The two Tesla Semi trucks seen in the background are the Silver and Black prototypes that went on their first trip from Gigafactory in Nevada to Tesla Fremont factory in CA last month.
After their first trip both Tesla Semi trucks are seen in different parts of the United States hauling battery packs and for showcasing purposes for the corporate clients.
I have set the following Tesla Semi unveil event video to start at the instant when the Roadster comes out of the Semi, enjoy and share your thoughts in the comments section below.
