The first car Tesla ever built, the Roadster, hasn’t gotten a whole lot of love lately and that's why they stopped building them back in 2012.
Electric car giant is working on a new roadster
Buried deep in Firday’s other Tesla news was word of a brand new Roadster model.
However, it looks like the Roadster is set for a revival. Buried deep in Firday’s other Tesla news was word of a brand new Roadster model.
According to reports, after announcing a 0-to-60-in-2.8-seconds mode for the Model S P85D that the company rightly calls “Ludicrous mode”, Tesla CEO Elon Musk dropped this little detail:
"There is of course one speed faster than ludicrous, but that is reserved for the next generation Roadster in 4 years: maximum plaid."
It’ll be a few years, but Tesla isn’t done with the Roadster just yet. And that’s good news — particularly for those who want the breakneck speeds of the Model S P85D in a body that’s a bit more exciting.
According to sources, Musk also confirmed on a press call that, Spaceball references aside, this would be a new model.
