The revelation of Tesla’s Roadster – the second iteration of company’s first supercar – shocked the world with its exquisite design and fantastic performance. Elon Musk claimed that the car can hit 60 from 0 in just 1.9 seconds, making it the fastest production car. The much-hyped Electric-powered Semi truck was also revealed on the same day. Elon Musk’s latest tweets suggest that he may be planning to release a flyable version of the supercar.

There were two major tweets made by Elon Musk regarding Tesla’s Roadster. The first was a clarification that the 1.9 second time to go from 0 to 60 is the performance of the base model. He added that there will be optional special packages that will be even more extreme than this one.

The next tweet caught a lot of attention: Elon Musk said that he doesn’t promise that the next generation of the Roadster’s upgrade package will make it capable of flying short distances, but it could happen. Then he went on to give a few arguments including that it is possible, but it is a question of safety, but it could open up unimaginable possibilities.While this claim is certainly very bright and delightful, let’s first look around and see what’s going on in the company and if it should be making such claims. One must wonder why the company is talking about anything else other than the main issue at hand: the production bottlenecks for the mass-market Model 3 sedan. With a clear and growing mountain of losses and the slow production rate of its luxury sedan, Elon Musk’s claims are just going to fan the flames that are already weakening the trust of the investors and the public.
