2020 Tesla Roadster will be a weapon

We know we’ve got a sweet job. Emile Bouret, a pro driver, designer, presenter and instructor also knows he’s got an incredible job. In the following video, Emile talks about some of the carmakers he’s had the opportunity to work with and for, namely Audi and Tesla.

While we love the story about the RS6 being faster than the R8 on a track at an Audi drive event, it’s what he says about the new Tesla Roadster that’s got intrigued. At the car’s event, he was the one giving attendees brisk rides, as in 0- to very fast repeatedly. He goes to confirm that the acceleration and performance data Tesla are very real based on the car he drove.

So, you know, the Roadster is expected to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 1.9 seconds and cover the ¼ mile in 8.8 seconds. Emile even specifies that the 1.9-second time is actually conservative.

In other Tesla news, it appears as though they’ve finally reached the 5,000-a-week production mark of the Model 3.
