Elon Musk has whipped up a frenzy of excitement as he revealed tantalizing details about the new Tesla Roadster.

Taking to X last night (28 February), he went back to posts from 2018 to update his followers on his own platform.

The update on the latest progress, suggested that the EV automaker is on the brink of unveiling a vehicle.

The EV promises to redefine the boundaries of the automotive industry – yet again.

“Tonight, we radically increased the design goals for the new Tesla Roadster,” he began.

“There will never be another car like this, if you could even call it a car.”

The series of posts from Elon Musk referred back to Twitter posts from 2018.

In June 2018 he announced that the Tesla Roadster would come with a SpaceX option package featuring ten small rocket thrusters and capabilities beyond traditional sports cars.

The thrusters would enhance acceleration, top speed, braking, and cornering and what’s more, Musk even teased the possibility of flight.

Musk’s 2018 posts reflected on his automotive journey, including choosing a McLaren F1 over a house in Palo Alto.

He used that sentiment last night to claim that, like him, you’ll love the new Tesla Roadster more than your house.

Seems with the Cybertruck launch a distant memory and production numbers on track, his creative engineers have taken on this new challenge.

Musk’s posts suggest there’s been a significant breakthrough.

“I think it has a shot at being the most mind-blowing product demo of all time,” he teased to X.

Elon Musk also unveiled its anticipated debut by the end of the year, setting a clear timeline and repeating what was predicated at a recent earnings call.

“Production design complete and unveil end of year, aiming to ship next yea[r],” he said.

He also tested a collaboration between two of his companies.

It suggests a fusion of automotive and aerospace technologies.

And that might come in usual considering Tesla’s ambition for the Roadster to be the fastest production car in the world.

It has a target 0 to 60 mph (0-97 km/h) acceleration time of under 1.9 seconds and a top speed exceeding 250 mph (402 km/h).

That would mean the Roadster would outperform the most advanced sports cars – including Tesla’s own Model S Plaid.

Musk’s assertion that the Roadster could achieve a 0-60 mph time of less than one second—remarkably stated as the “least interesting part” sets unprecedented expectations for performance.

In terms of range and battery efficiency, the Roadster is equipped with a 200 kWh battery pack it aims to set a new standard with a range of up to 620 miles on a single charge.

The Roadster’s launch was originally set for 2021.

However, the road production has been met with delays.

However, given these posts, and existing information, Tesla seems optimistic.

Previously, we’ve heard numbers for a base model starting at around $200,000 – a premium offering in the EV market.

Unlike this low-cost Tesla whose target date Elon Musk just set.

The limited-edition Founder’s Series and the SpaceX Package will highlight the Roadster’s exclusivity and ensure its place firmly in automotive history.
