The Tesla Roadster is set for a 2022 release, and people are now wondering what the electric supercar is going to have as performance, with Elon Musk confirming its 0-60mph in 1.1 seconds. This speed would be achievable with the "SpaceX Thruster Package," which would come as an option and would feel like a "hardcore roller coaster" for users.
This is not your ordinary supercar or roller coaster. With the Tesla Roadster releasing for the second time around, the company would do everything it takes to showcase an iconic machine for the public. The Roadster is Tesla's first car released in 2008, and it holds a special place in the heart of the companies due to its make jump-starting the career of car making.
While Tesla Model 3 was the electric vehicle that saved the company from going bankrupt or plummeting in the business, the Roadster is still an iconic electric vehicle for them as it is one of the firsts in electric supercars. Moreover, it is the first production electric vehicle globally, which can bring 245 miles of range in a single charge.
Tesla Roadster SpaceX Thruster Package: 0-60mph in 1.1s
In what seems to be unreal claims for a real-life electric vehicle or any vehicle, in particular, Elon Musk has confirmed that the Tesla Roadster's 0-60 miles per hour to be at 1.1 seconds only. Yes, that is right, it would only take 1 second and a fraction of a second to bring the car's speed from zero or stationary to 60 mph.
This claim beats the Rimac Concept_One and the regular Tesla Roadster's 0-60mph speeds which play at around 1.90 seconds or almost two full seconds. Initially, it was revealed in 2020, but people are still asking the CEO about it now, which seems surreal for the public to believe, as it is one of the firsts to declare it at those speeds.
Is the Tesla Roadster SpaceX Package Faster than Rimac's Concept One?
In terms of spec sheet alone and words by their factories or engineers, Tesla Roadster with the SpaceX Thruster Package is one heck of a beast and the fastest in the electric supercar industry or category. Its prototypes have claimed this, but actual trials made by adventure seekers or myth busters themselves are yet to come to prove these claims once and for all.
2020 render by graphic artist Slave Popovski (@Pslavi) imagines the acceleration speed of the Tesla Roadster with the SpaceX Thruster Package (hidden on its license plate) on its 0-60mph. The video shows unreal proportions of the vehicle, being that it is a render. Still, it is a close approximation of how it would look in real life.
The speed claims are still unproven, but in words alone, the Tesla Roadster with SpaceX Thruster Package is now faster than Rimac's Concept_One.
This is how fast 1.1 seconds 0 - 60mph take off should look like with Space X package thrusters on the Tesla Roadster. Computer worked out physics and then visualised in a render animation. Not sure how much gas but threw the effect in anyway. Enjoy @elonmusk #tesla #spacex pic.twitter.com/VzMukQPT2E— Slave' Popovski ® (@Pslavi) June 23, 2020
