The hype surrounding Tesla vehicles continues to fascinate us day after day. One need only look at the video that has gone viral of thousands of Tesla’s receiving an update to be convinced. The recent buzz around the new steering wheel, to say the least unusual, put forward by the brand provides another illustration. At the heart of this strategy of occupying the media space, we of course find Elon Musk, the whimsical billionaire. He just struck again with a new statement to say the least rowdy about the Tesla Roadster.
A Tesla Roaster that no longer touches the ground?
The vehicle, perhaps a little less known to the general public than the Model S or 3, is thought of as a sports car, 100% electric. The first version was released in 2006 and the second should be marketed during the year 2021, including in rather original colors. Capable of going from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.1 seconds and reaching over 400 km / h, it will make speed enthusiasts dream. Better yet, according to statements from Elon Musk, the Tesla Roadster could eventually go even faster. One wonders why…
Asked by Joe Rogan, Elon Musk revealed that he intended to get the Tesla Roadster high.
We’re going to launch rocket technology in this car. I want her to get high. We have to figure out how to get it high without killing people.
If it is easy to imagine that the authorities should not necessarily see such an initiative favorably, Elon Musk seems to cling to this idea. He plans to hover the car about 1 meter from the ground. The reason ?
So if you dive you destroy the suspensions, but you are not going to die.
Not necessarily very reassuring … But the boss of Tesla has obviously planned everything, including the technical dimension.
You would go pretty fast, but you are going to be limited in time. With this optional “SpaceX” pack, instead of the two rear seats, we would have a high pressure tank, something around 700 bar, clad in carbon and with a power pack.
