Elon Musk is the ultimate performer. And he knows it. His latest bit of intrigue? Sunday night, the billionaire teased the notion that the only thing stopping Tesla's most souped up Tesla Roadster from flying is safety precautions.
Thursday, after unveiling the Tesla Semi truck, Musk announced the next generation high-end Tesla Roadster.
The four-seater, high-performance electric vehicle, due out in 2020, will be able to go 250 miles per hour. The first run of 1,000 Roadsters will cost $250,000 each. "The point of doing this is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars," Musk said.
And then, as if to put a cherry on top, Musk tweeted that the model that goes from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 1.9 seconds is the "base model" and "there will be a special option package that takes it to the next level."
