The next-generation Tesla Roadster is yet to enter production, but the all-electric supercar is already capturing the interest and imagination of auto enthusiasts worldwide. Much of this interest stems from the Roadster’s potential, as it is a vehicle specifically designed — as Elon Musk put it — to “deliver a hardcore smackdown” to gasoline-powered cars.

 

Looking at the specs of the Roadster, it is evident that Tesla is dead serious about making the vehicle a class above the norm. Equipped with three electric motors, the all-electric supercar is capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, accelerating all the way to a top speed of more than 250 mph. The vehicle is equipped with a very sizable 200 kWh battery pack as well, giving it a range of 620 miles per charge. Few gas-powered cars in the market today can hold a candle to these specs.

 

The next-generation Roadster’s upcoming disruption of the supercar industry was showcased in a brief teaser created by a Tesla enthusiast who goes by the name of The Yazuki. Uploaded on video sharing website Vimeo, the spec for the next-gen Roadster likened the vehicle to light, in the way that it is powerful and capable of breaking through barriers. The teaser featured a number of impressive shots of the Roadster, all of which highlight the supercar’s futuristic design
