Re: New Tesla Roadster amazing 1.9 seconds 0-60 and semi 5 seconds 0-60!

Ron Baron (an eminent investor said... Investors seem to believe in the Tesla story at least until now, otherwise they wouldn't invest billions that Musk is burning day by day. TSLA is not burning money! They are investing money in superchargers, stores, two Gigafactories (now- more on the way), se...

Re: New Tesla Roadster amazing 1.9 seconds 0-60 and semi 5 seconds 0-60!

If Tesla isn't able to earn money with model 3 in 2018 I'm not sure if we will see more Tesla models on the road in 2019ff... If you can't make money with a model 3 class car you can not make money with trucks plus a new charging network. So I assume we all will be wiser end of next year. Ron Baron...

Elon tweeted the following about the Roadster:

Re: New Tesla Roadster amazing 1.9 seconds zero to sixty! Dragtime video

Heard of this on the TV news, though along with the 1.9s car they showed the sleek over the road big rigs that only required 30 minute charge time and can go 800 miles. 220V and how many amps, who knows. Would love to see the battery pack for both! It’s actually a 500 mile range, the chargers are p...

I found this information, and I am not sure if it's already been posted or if a dedicated thread is the best place for it. If the mod's think it's best to move it that's fine with me.
