Tesla CEO Elon Musk Hypes Up Roadster Unveil later this Year, Says “It cannot be regarded as a Car”

this is the Tesla Roadster it was unveiled in 2017 and the company promised it would be the fastest car ever made but it never made it to production until now it seems after six years CEO Elon Musk saying the long delay electric sports car will begin shipments next year PR suenan has the details I can’t I can’t help laugh my way through that intro it’s coming now it’s coming now pross really is it really coming I don’t I mean like that’s little crous says it is but and just to rewind a little bit 2017 right this is

  • what 5 years ago we heard we saw this thing roll out at a at a at an event um and then
  • haven’t heard much since until 2022 when musk said at the Giga Rodeo when they
  • opened up the Austin Factory that it’s coming uh it’s going to come in 2023 right and
  • they reopen reservations whole and we’ll talk about that but basically now we see must
  • tweeting late last night it is coming they’ve they’ve they basically production design is
  • complete uh they’re going to unveil the car later this year like you said Josh

and then planning for sales next year now says again a0o to 60 time less than a second kind of insane stuff here but again we heard this last we heard this two years ago we heard it five years ago is it actually going to come out um deposit holders some had put down $50,000 yeah um no interest right that’s refundable I’m sorry $5,000 refundable other people have put down $250,000 for the foundation SE to get well I hope they get it eventually right I mean this reminds me of the Cyber truck a little bit as well

  1. which as which did well it sort of come out yeah yeah that eventually right right yeah um
  2. it’s interesting timing because of course byd came out with its own Supercar um earlier
  3. this week is that a coincidence that we’re now getting an update on the Roadster this I
  4. wrote a piece on it’s going to come out just just in the next few moments but basically
  5. yes I kind of allude to the fact that it’s interesting that these tweets came out late last
  6. night only we talked about byd’s u9 uh super car right it’s going to cost

$230,000 around the same price as potentially the Tesla Roadster uh scissor doors four Motors all this all these all these pretty cool stats but only a couple months ago Neo also said that their ep9 hypercar was going to cost 3 million us uh 1,000 horsepower interchangeable batteries all this sort of stuff these the Chinese Supercar makers are are sort of coming on strong here and it seems like maybe musk kind of had to cough up more details cuz he felt the need to cuz these are these these cars are going to come on the road

later this year the Chinese car so uh in China but not necessarily uh in the US but still competition nonetheless right if you’re a Chinese buyer are you going to wait for the Tesla Roadster are you going to buy one of these other ones I want to quickly just say something real quick um yes it is a $5,000 deposit not a $50,000 deposit for oh that’s a lot lower yeah but still it’s one to corre It’s not nothing I mean it’s it’s interesting probably because listen I I think that’s a beautiful car the lines

on that car are are beautiful to me but I I would say like 200,000 when you find yourself competing with like a Lamborghini Ferrari that’s a small Market I mean ultimately that doesn’t move the needle for Tesla or the EV market right I mean what have we talked about so much on the show what’s one way to reignite growth here it’s not the 200,000 car and again gorgeous car but ultimately you need lower price TVs right yeah I think this these are just Halo cars that bring people in like you know they have they have the Optimus

robot in some some stores to kind of bring people in same with the Cyber trucks in a lot of the Marquee Tesla stores to bring people in so that’s like so the thing that kind of draws you you’re going to buy the the model y or the model 3 maybe the x or or the S as your actual car quickly I want to re again clarify that it’s a $5,000 deposit but then within 10 days you got a C cougher 45,000 for a full for a 50,000 so it is effectively a $50,000 deposit car that people have put down yes and and the car when it came when it when

2017 it was it was said to be a $200,000 MSRP and 250k for that Founders Edition sorry about that want to get that clear that’s okay we’ll see I mean there’s it’s not even out yet so there’s a lot of there’s a lot of confusion I guess yeah why do we care right it doesn’t matter it’s going to change tomorrow who knows right we’ll see tweet
