Tesla is making their new roadster

"The new Tesla roadster will be the fastest production car ever made. 


It'll do the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds. I won't say what the actual top speed is, but it's above 250 mph. This is for the base model. These numbers sound nutty, but they're real. 620 mile range. That's 1000 km range. 

This will be the first time an electric vehicle breaks 1000 km..... a production electric vehicle will travel more than 1000 km on a single charge at highway speed. This thing will have 3 motors, so it's all wheel drive. 10,000 Newton-metres of torque. Do you know what that means? It's stupid. It's got a removable roof and it has tons of storage.
~Elon Musk

0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds. 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds. For reference, the Corvette ZR1 has 970 nm torque and does 0-60 in 3.1 seconds.

The new Tesla roadster will cost $200,000 and is scheduled to be available in 2020.
