"Today Tesla teased its next passenger model, the updated roadster with mind-boggling performance numbers. The second generation roadster - first was the pioneering model of Tesla - 10,000 Nm of available torque and reaches 60 mph from zero in 1.9 seconds. It one of the quickest production cars, or perhaps THE quickest, reaching the quarter mile mark in just 8.8 seconds. The range is also impressive with claimed 620 miles, although it's not designed for grand tours. If you like it so far then it can be yours for a neat sum, just $200,000. And you have to wait until 2020 to get it." Ed.
