Tesla presented a lot of stuff at their semi-truck event, yet they kept the most exciting part for the end – the introduction of the Tesla Roadster. According to Elon Musk, the mastermind behind Tesla, this car is going to be the “fastest production car ever made, period.”
“It will do the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds,” Musk said. “This will be the first time that any production car has broken 9 seconds in the quarter mile.”
“People have asked us for a long time, ‘when are you going to make a new Roadster?” Musk explained and added: “We are making it now.”
The new Roadster is expected to be available for purchase in 2020 and the prices will start at $200,000 USD.
The introduction of the new Tesla Roadster was a quite impressive thing to watch. See for yourselves from the video below.
