A graphic designer turned some of Elon Musk’s promises regarding the promising sports car from the electric vehicle brand Tesla into reality. With the help of CGI, a Tesla Roadster with rocket thrusters was born.
“This is how fast 1.1 seconds 0 – 60mph take off should look like with Space X package thrusters on the Tesla Roadster. Computer worked out physics and then visualised in a render animation. Not sure how much gas but threw the effect in anyway,” wrote Slave Popovski, a CGI artist and avionics engineer from Sydney, Australia, sharing the simulation on his social media.

It is not known exactly when the promising Tesla Roadster will hit the market, but the expectation around its launch is great since the electric sports car must reach speeds of more than 400 kilometres per hour and go from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.1 seconds. In addition, its battery will provide a range of 100 kilometres.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has even announced that the new Roadster will be able to be equipped with a “SpaceX package”, that is, with “10 small rocket boosters“. He added that the vehicle may be able to fly.
SpaceX option package for new Tesla Roadster will include ~10 small rocket thrusters arranged seamlessly around car. These rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering. Maybe they will even allow a Tesla to fly …
