There have been rumors of Back to the Future being rebooted some time in the future, and if that happens, the 2020 Tesla Roadster SpaceX Edition would be a perfect time travel vehicle, or so automotive designer Charlie Nghiem.

With the SpaceX option, Elon Musk believes the electric hypercar will truly deliver a “hardcore smackdown” to petrol cars.
