About the last production Roadster

This is a series of two videos about the Tesla Roadster with VIN 1459, the last production Roadster built (after that there were only 5 more built, the ‘Final Five’). The video explains what happens when the Roadster stops being able to charge (called a bricked Roadster), difficulties transporting a locked car, and the importance of quick response to assure a recovery is possible.

Production Tesla Roadster will look better

I don’t know how this car can look even better, but that is what Elon said. Now, I just need to find a way of paying for it and I will be all set!

Roadster 2020 may be delayed to 2022

Elon Musk hinted at the next-generation Tesla Roadster being delayed to at least 2022 and maybe even later. This makes sense if you think about the current situation and Tesla not wanting to miss the opportunity of the Model Y becoming Tesla’s best selling car, apart from ramping up production of the Semi and the Cybertruck.

Roadster’s rocket thrusters

One could think Elon was joking when he explained Jay Leno’s how the new Roadster rocket thrusters will work, but he actually wasn’t. “We’re gonna use ultra-high pressure compressed air. It’s a cold gas thruster. The main thruster will be behind the license plate. So for acceleration, it drops the license plate, and behind the license plate is a rocket thruster. It’s like full-on James Bond".

At this point, I can believe anything coming from Elon Musk. I just can’t wait to see it.

The next gen Roadster will fly 'a little'

Or at least that is what Elon said on Twitter. The numbers of the new Model Plaid+ are so impressive that Ryan McCaffrey (from Ride the Lightning) was asking Elon if the new Roadster will ‘time travel’, to what Elon Musk responded that is part rocket, and when John (from TOSV) asked him if it can fly, Elon responded ‘a little’ 😱😱
