Tesla Roadster: 0-60 in 1.1 seconds Could Look Like This

The Tesla Roadster is said to hit 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, or 1.1 seconds with the SpaceX package


  • A CGI artist has created a very real-looking video of the Roadster hitting 60 mph in 1.1s.

  • Musk has claimed that it will be quicker than any other production car around the Nürburgring.

  • The Tesla Roadster is still a few years away.


Once upon a time, a quick car covered the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 7 seconds. A really fast car managed a 5-second launch. Today, a family SUV needs 7 seconds, a sporty car takes 5 seconds and the Tesla Roadster would crush the acceleration run in under 2 seconds. But that’s not nearly fast enough as cold-air thrusters, as part of a SpaceX package, would drop the time to 1.1 seconds.

If you’ve ever been in a fast car, a Tesla Model S (2.5 seconds) or Model 3 (3 seconds) Performance for example, and experienced their full accelerative potential, it’s difficult to imagine that anything can be faster. In order to help us visualize what 0-60 in 1.1 seconds looks like, CGI artist Slave Popovsky has created a “brief” video to demonstrate.

Tesla Roadster 0-60 Time Would Make It Fastest Production Car

We’ve now watched the video dozens of times and we still can’t wrap our minds around has fast this is. The front end of the Roadster lifts somewhat but this is probably the result of the “cheetah stance” setup otherwise, although the car is AWD and heavy, it looks as though it could pop a wheelie.

We can’t wait to see this car do its thing for real.
