The Tesla Roadster would be the first such car ever to break the two second mark, the entrepreneur said at a launch near Los Angeles.
It will also be the first time that any production car has broken 9 seconds in the quarter mile. "The point of doing this is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars," he said. “Driving a gasoline sports car is going to feel like a steam engine with a side of quiche.” Production of the new car, an updated version of Tesla's first production vehicle, is expected to begin in 2020.
Its top speed was not revealed, but he hinted it was "above 250pmh". The current world record for a production car is 277.9mph, held by the Agera RS by Sweden’s Koenigsegg.
The car, which will have a base price of $200,000, was unveiled theatrically during the launch of a prototype electric big-rig truck, dubbed the Tesla Semi.
