Elon Musk has hyped the 2020 Tesla Roadster ever since it was announced back in 2017, and many have been waiting to hear more about the “SpaceX option package”. The base model is claimed to have a top speed of 250 mph and a 620-mile range powered by a 250 kWh battery pack, but the optional package apparently adds 10 small rocket thrusters. Read more to see what 0-60 mph in 1.1-seconds looks like in the electric supercar.



Slav Popovski, a talented CGI artist and aircraft avionics engineer based in Sydney, Australia, created the interesting simulation above showing what a rocket thruster-powered Tesla Roadster would look like accelerating to 60 mph from a standstill. Apparently, system would be comprised of an electric pump to recharge an air tank used to provide compressed air flowing through propelling nozzles to generate a cold jet thrust. These are the same air tanks used in the Falcon rockets, and would replace the back seats.
