But you’ll go super fast and probably look fly as hell.
Tesla unveiled its new electric semi-truck late Thursday, which is pretty cool if you care about the future of trucking, but less cool since there’s a good chance you’ll never actually drive one.
But in a surprise twist at the end of the event, Tesla did its best Apple impression and unveiled one more thing.
That thing: A revamped, electric Tesla Roadster with four seats and the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds. Tesla CEO Elon Musk described it as the “fastest production car ever made. Period.”
That looks to be right. Dodge’s Challenger Demon, marketed as “the world’s fastest production car,” goes 0 to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds. The Porsche 918 Spyder goes 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds.
But even if you love to drive fast, it’s likely you’ll never drive a Tesla Roadster, either — the new base model costs $ 200,000. You can reserve one today with a $ 50,000 deposit.
But what makes the Roadster interesting is that it doesn’t really align with Musk’s push to make electric vehicles more affordable. Unlike the Model 3, Tesla’s more affordable car for the everyman, the Roadster is basically a very expensive, shiny, fast toy.
Doesn’t make it any less fun to look at, or any less impressive. (Did we mention it’s fast?) Just don’t expect it to have much meaningful change on the transportation industry.
I’ve noticed that there are two kinds of people, generally speaking, when it comes to app purchases. Those that consider a couple bucks towards a new app no big deal, and those that wait until the last minute, if ever, to drop a few dollars on a “Pro” version or IAP for a full app. Personally, I jump at the chance to disable ads, add additional features, and support independent developers.
