Tesla’s Very Busy : Pickup Reveal Date, Model S and Roadster At The Nürburgring

Porsche poked the all-mighty Musk and he’s out to out-do everyone with news on the Pickup, the Roadster and more Model S track time

Musk’s has shared a few details about the upcoming and highly anticipated Tesla Pickup over the last year or so. Of the many things shared on Twitter, we understand that the Pickup will make all other pickups look like toys and that it won’t seem out of place in a sci-fi movie.

Of the many other bits, Musk’s has said that a base Pickup should retail for under $50,000 USD and higher trims and versions could provide a range of between 550 and 750km. The latest detail pertains to a potential launch timeline which, according to another tweet from Musk, will be in November.

We look forward to this battle which will feature the Tesla Pickup, the Rivian R1T and the Ford F-150 electric.

Model S at the ‘Ring

We don’t know when we’ll get official results from this endeavor however even if Tesla fails to beat Porsche’s record, someone will get the scoop. When that happens, we’ll share.

Roadster

With all the talk about the Model S shredding rubber on the Nürburgring, it makes sense that the highly anticipated new Roadster come up as a subject. If anything, this is the Tesla that should (needs?) to take on the Nürburgring and set a serious lap time.

In the fury of tweets following the announcement that a Model S was headed to the ‘Ring, Musk simply responded to a follower when the topic of the Roadster was brought up with a “Next year.”

The Tesla Roadster’s pricing will resemble that of the Porsche Taycan Turbo and Turbo S so on that front, the comparison makes sense. Now all that remains is for Porsche to launch a 2-door version of the Taycan…
