Back in 2017, Ilon Mask (Elon Musk) stated that the Tesla Hypercar of the second generation would be able to accelerate to 100 km / h in less than two seconds, and special equipment with reactive nozzles in the rear license plate area even surpasses this result. It seems that for this version of the electric vehicle, the target indicator is 1.1 seconds.
Until now, only informal sources mentioned this value, but the ELECTREK resource with a reference to eyewitnesses said that the prototype Tesla Roadster was informed in one of the Los Angeles Museums supplied by a curious annotation. She reports that the so-called “Spacex package” really will give the car with impressive dynamics, allowing to overcome the frontier of 60 miles per hour in 1.1 seconds. No modern cars admitted to general roads are not capable of this, as the text of the annotation.
Recall that the additional acceleration of the electric vehicle in this configuration should give nozzles with compressed air located in the rear of the housing. How like this idea gets around with the safety technique and the rules for certification of various countries – the question is separate, but by the end of the summer, Tesla should be ready for the first rolling prototypes, so the version with the Spacex package is sooner or later will also be released. In the meantime, Ilon Mask Publication of video from the California Museum accompanied the comment on the fact that the serial version of the Tesla Roadster second generation will have a more attractive appearance compared to the prototype.
