Thursday, November 16 will be known as the day Elon Musk changed the game for car businesses forever.
Being described as the “fastest production car ever made,” the new Tesla Roadster will be challenging Chevrolet’s Corvette ZR-1 and Dodge’s newest Challenger nicknamed the “Demon” for fastest car but however the Roadster will not be released until 2020.
When released, the Roadster will be able to go from 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds or to 100 in 4.2 seconds. The car will also be able to travel .25 miles in only 8.9 seconds. More or less, if you get the chance to buy this car, you’ll be living the life of a NASCAR driver without the constant left turns. This car through will cost as much as a car in NASCAR as it will set your bank account back to the stone age to the tune of $250,000.
With the being that impressive from a technological and price perspective and also considering the fact that this car will be fast than a Bugatti Charon which costs around $3 million. The average person will not be able to handle this car and its power.
Musk knows this car is the real deal and he means it saying this, “The point of doing this is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline vehicles.” He mentoned the price by describing like this “It’ll feel like a steam engine with a side of quiche.”
He kept the top speed of the Roadster unknown but it will be above 250 mph with gas mileage on the car being twice as more as the current models.
“You’ll be able to travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back without refueling,” Musk said. Most critics disagree with the statement as the car will have to have fuel mileage of over 700 miles, Musk give the actual fuel mileage of the Roadster at 620 miles.
Along with those impressive statistics, the Roadster will have all-wheel drive and will be able to fit four people, even if two of those people will have to be very small.
Musk has set down the challenge to all automakers… Who’s going to answer it.
