Tesla Touting 10 Rocket Thrusters for New Roadster

Tesla Touting 10 Rocket Thrusters for New Roadster

Musk, responding to a user's concern regarding how the autonomous driving features function in the case of two lanes merging, said that the autopilot's issue is fully fixed in the next update.

Musk initially referred to these boosters as "small rocket thrusters" but, in a tweet elaborating upon earlier claims, he stated it would be a "composite overwrapped pressure vessel" (COPV), instead of an actual rocket.

Tesla produced the first version of the Roadster from 2008 to 2012.

The V9 update may technically make drivers safer, but Telsa and other makers of autonomous vehicles appear to still have a way to go in building public trust in self-driving vehicles. But this time it was Elon Musk's own Roadster, which was launched into space atop a Falcon Heavy rocket. The mentioned specifications were apparently for the "base version" of the next-gen Roadster.

Those potential benefits would be in addition to the previously announced specifications for the electric vehicle, which includes a 200kWh battery pack that will enable the auto to achieve a 0-60 miles per hour time of 1.9 seconds.

From dynamic-looking rear lights to a sharpened front end - complete with more pronounced wheel arches - the updated Tesla Roadster looks like the meaner cousin of the Model 3, and that can only be a good thing.

Tesla unveiled the new Roadster in November.

The Tesla founder made the disclosure in a Twitter conversation, responding to a user who complained about issues with Autopilot, which is now considered semi-autonomous with the requirement that a motorist be at the wheel at all times. The rocket engines will obviously help the vehicle accelerate faster and reach higher top speed. The rear wheels are powered by one motor each, while the front wheels share power from another motor, and all three combine to give the new Roadster 10,000 Nm of torque - frankly ridiculous number.

Tesla has been garnering more criticism as it burns through cash and has suffered from a significant amount of production delays.
