Roadster Owner Question...

I can understand why a tiny car with huge tires like the Z wouldn't include a spare. I'm not sure you can even fit 1 rear tire in the trunk.

I can understand why a tiny car with huge tires like the Z wouldn't include a spare. I'm not sure you can even fit 1 rear tire in the trunk.

I thought most standard passenger cars still had spare tires standard, even if they are the small emergency-only donuts.

When I asked about it at the dealer, they told me it's standard practice now, which is why they include emergency service with the car for 3 years, or whatever it is. Now that I think about it, most of the car owners I know wouldn't have any idea where to put the jack anyway. That was one thing I really liked about my BMW, the little pop-off doors for the jack mounting points.

This is correct. My 2010 has a spare tire and jack as well.
