Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Tesla founder Elon Musk has announced plans to install rocket thrusters in the backseat of the company's newest auto.

Musk's promotion to his millions of followers - that the fantastic future of self-driving cars might only be a few months away - appeared to give the company a leg-up in the auto industry's most competitive technological race.

The key words in Musk's tweet are "begin to enable".

Tesla wouldn't say if the system performed as designed.

Here is a great news for Tesla autonomous owners that coming in August - a new software update is coming toTesla's self-driving cars and that update would bring more autonomy to Tesla's Autopilots.

As it turns out, he wasn't. It will apparently utilise composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPV; created to store fluid under pressure) to store the compressed air, and an electric pump will be employed to replenish air. These will not be actual rockets, but COPV bottles - essentially ultra high pressure air containers.

Any concerns of excess power being demanded from the COPV have been quashed by preliminary Roadster specifications.

Due to arrive in 2020, the Roadster will be powered by a 200kWh battery pack that is capable of achieving 620 miles on a single charge, says Digital Trends.

On Saturday, Musk wrote that New Telsa Roadster would enhance all gas sports cars.

Now, at this point it might start to sound a tad unrealistic, considering that the second-generation Tesla Roadster is targeted to sprint from zero to 97 km/h in 1.9 seconds without the thrusters. Musk has regularly referred to the spots as "kids seats".

The electric vehicle company unveiled the new all-electric Roadster alongside its Semi truck last November. Just read about The Boring Company's flamethrowers.

Michael Sanchez, who has worked at Tesla since 2012 and is now on medical leave, said he was asked to leave by security guards and a supervisor while handing out leaflets to colleagues outside a Tesla facility in February 2017. 20,000 of the products, officially called "Not a Flamethrower" have been sold to help raise money for the Boring Company's underground drilling venture.
