Elon Musk Stirs Buzz with Flying Tesla Roadster—Will It Take Off?

Elon Musk’s shocking remarks

The surprising status of Tesla’s electric roadster development has been revealed. After the first-generation model was discontinued in 2012, the Tesla Roadster raised expectations for its unveiling as a teaser for the second-generation model unveiled in 2014.

In 2016, Tesla directly announced its launch by mentioning the second-generation Roadster. Later, in 2017, Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled a prototype of the second-generation Roadster and announced plans for a 2020 launch.

Space exploration company SpaceX and Tesla announced a collaboration

However, as its launch was continuously delayed, consumers were losing interest in the second-generation Roadster. In addition, the news about the Roadster that Musk recently revealed through social media has caused a stir and is becoming a hot topic worldwide. He announced on X that the next-generation Roadster will be able to fly.

Elon Musk has previously shown interest in technology that enables cars to fly. He unveiled Tesla’s plans to enhance the design of the Roadster model through social media, indicating that the initiative was a collaboration between Tesla and SpaceX. SpaceX, a space exploration company founded by Musk, has been actively developing projects that include spacecraft and launch vehicles.

Detailed plan not disclosed
Not sure what form it will take

In theory, a rocket propeller can be mounted on a vehicle and fly a short distance, but as the distance is short, it seems to be closer to jumping than flying. However, Musk only mentioned that it can fly, so precisely what technology will be used is unknown. There are currently many speculations regarding this.

In the shareholders ‘ meeting presentation, Tesla introduced new car projects, artificial intelligence, and autonomous driving technology. However, no information about the second-generation roadster or its launch was mentioned in the plans. Even if the Roadster is launched later, it is expected to take considerable time.

The launch has already been postponed several times
The response continues to be that there is no trust

Meanwhile, consumers still respond to his remarks by saying they cannot be trusted. This is because, in most cases, Musk’s promises are not actually kept, or even if they are kept, they are delayed for a long time. For this roadster alone, a launch plan was initially announced in 2020 but has not yet been launched.

Musk announced that full-scale production of the Roadster would begin in 12 to 18 months when the launch was scheduled for late 2020. However, in January 2021, he postponed the launch to 2022 and then again until 2023. As the release has been delayed several times, consumers have raised their voices of criticism, calling for the promised release date to be kept rather than the application of vain technology.
