Is The New Tesla Roadster Too Fast?

Tesla CEO Elon Musk boasted of a 1.9-second zero-to-60-mph time and a top speed of 250 miles per hour back

when the Roadster concept was unveiled back in 2017 - figures we are all eagerly hoping will prove to be accurate when the original Tesla Roadster eventually arrives.

When the forthcoming Tesla Roadster was announced back in 2017, Elon Musk stunned the world by

announcing the revised electric sports car would hit the 60-mph mark in a mere 1.9 seconds.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed Tesla is updating the design of the new Roadster, which looks to achieve the mind-boggling acceleration of 0-62 mph in 1.1 seconds using a SpaceX pack.

The Pininfarina Battista is expected to blow even the second-generation Tesla Roadster out of the water when it comes to the top-speed performance,

as the Battista is not going to break 217 miles per hour, which is 33 miles slower than the top-speed suggested for the Roadster in prototype form.

If Teslas base new Roadster is capable of breaking the two-second barrier, thus becoming the fastest production vehicle on Earth,

a stripped-down vehicle might be capable of going even faster, shaving tenths of seconds off of that times performance.
