It's been two years since Tesla introduced the prototype for its next-generation Roadster, and it'll probably be another one or two years before it hits production, but it's obviously worth the wait.
Tesla's chief designer says the vehicle is "evolving".
At its first car launch, Tesla asked for a list of impressive features for its new Roadster, including 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, 620 miles range and more.
Other manufacturers of supercars have even stated that it is a rising standard for them.
CEO Elon Musk also annoyed these specifications as "base specifications", and other versions should have even crazier performance.
Later, he even said that Tesla would offer a "SpaceX package".
At the outset, the CEO said that these chokes, which are generally small rocket engines, "will dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, stopping and turning, "but he also said he would" Maybe even allow Tesla to fly. "
Although it is not yet clear how serious Musk is about the ability of the new Tesla Roadster with the SpaceX package, Franz von Holzhausen , Tesla's chief designer, confirmed the car was "evolving".
He told the Ride the Lighting podcast this weekend:
"This is well-deserved, so more time is needed. It will be even better than what we found out ̵1; by any means. "
The design executive did not confirm exactly how the vehicle was developing, but he said it became the" supreme vehicle. "
At the unveiling of the car, Musk said the idea was to" deliver the most good gasoline pleasure "by taking away the" halo effect "and the best supercar possible is all electric.
Last month, the company even said they expect a production version of the Tesla Roadster supercar to break the Nürburgring record next year.
Initial Musk has spoken about the launch of the new Tesla Roadster in 2020, but recently it has softened expectations when it comes to supercar release times – saying it is not a priority.
