The Tesla Semi wasn't the only thing revealed on yesterday's presentation. Before ending the its presentation, Tesla also unveiled its next generation roadster prototype.
Powered by three motors, two in the rear, and one in the front. The roadster can 0-60 in 1.9 secs, 0-100 in 4.2 secs, does the quarter mile in 8.8 sec and a top speed of over 250 mph. With a 200 kWh battery pack, it has a range of 620 miles and can go 1000 km in one charge at highway speeds, all recording specs.
Those of you with some extra dough can put down $50,000 to reserve your own for $200,000 on the base model, right now. The first 1,000 models sold will be the Founder's series at a price tag of $250,000.

As fans gasped, Musk said the Roadster had a 200kwh battery pack and a 620-mile range per charge, or over 1,000 kilometers. Again, another record shattered. Or so Musk claims. Imagine driving to Los Angeles to San Francisco, and back, without recharging, Musk teased.
