The upcoming Tesla Roadster will come with optional “special paint,” Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter.
The car designed to give a “hardcore smackdown” to all others is expected to start production in mid to late 2021. Musk said they’re adding color options as the company did for the original Roadster.
In 2008, the Roadster was available in “Very Orange,” “Electric Blue,” Brilliant Yellow Metallic,” “Fusion Red,” and “Racing Green.”
With a base price of $200,000, the second generation of the car expected to pack impressive specs even for a supercar – 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds and a range of up to 620 miles from a 200 kWh battery pack.
That said, Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen – the man who drove the Roadster out of the Tesla Semi for its debut – said last year on a podcast that the Roadster “will be even better than what we’ve unveiled in every way.”
