Latest Lifestyle News: Tesla Spring a Surprise

Elon Musk continues to have his fingers firmly planted in an inordinate number of pies, from space exploration to super high-speed hyperloop trains. But he remains most famous for his Tesla brand, makers of the world’s most successful all-electric high-end car.

The genius entrepreneur was recently in the news again for the Los Angeles unveiling of the first electric truck, and it caused quite a stir. Yet there was also an additional surprise in store for those in attendance and the millions more watching live online, because Musk then went on to draw the curtain on what was instantly billed as the world’s fastest production car.

The second-generation Tesla Roadster is said to do 0 to 60mph in 1.9 seconds, which would make it the first production vehicle to beat the two-second threshold. You can read more about this attention-grabbing launch by Tesla in today’s newsletter.
