Tesla changed the 0-60mph time of their supercar to 2.1 secs before any option like a crazy rocket thruster.
On a Tweet, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk said that the new Roadster 0-60mph time is 2.1 seconds before adding rocket thruster option.
When the vehicle was first announced, it has spectacular specs including 0-60 mph in 1.9 sec and 620-mile of range. At the event, Musk let us think that this was the base model specs.
A few months later, he teased us with an out of this world Space X Package that will feature rocket thruster, that will result in even better specs.
Today, on a tweet, the CEO stated that the 0-60mph on the base model will be 2.1 seconds and not 1.9, hence a downgrade from the original number.
