Um, no. No such thing as a back seat in a Tesla Roadster. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Roadster_(2008)
It does have 53kwh worth of battery, which should keep a cubesat-ish transponder (and the car systems) running for a few months. Toss it in the passenger seat (Sir Isaac will be driving), and plug it into the accessory outlet. Just don't forget to turn the key on, as the car (and music player) shuts down after 10 min after door close. But is it really a good idea to leave one's keys in the car when not attended? In outer space?
