It could be the big car experience of 2022. Although Tesla promised the 2020 pandemic delayed the US company’s plans. It has been almost three years since Elon Musk presented the prototype for what will be the second generation of the Tesla Roadster. According to the company’s CEO, the first deliveries will take place if things go well in 2022. However, we do not have to wait that long to see it in action because the Tesla Roadster 2021 will fly at the Nürburgring.
This drive goes from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 2 seconds and promised autonomy for 1000 km.
The Tesla Roadster will fly on the runway in 2021
According to the positive response from Elon Musk himself, who took responsibility for doing so on Twitter, the Tesla Roadster 2021 will pass through the Nürburgring. In a word, one can conclude that the California company sees Green Hell as the perfect setting to test the development of its electric car.

What is this bolide's mission to go on such a demanding track?
At a time when Tesla already knows which lines to sew, what is the reason for taking the car to such a demanding track as the German one? The truth is that since the introduction, we have hardly had new data on the Roadster, as Tesla has prioritized other projects such as the Tesla CyberTruck.
Thus, and in accordance with the truth, it will not be known whether these announced performances will be seen and achieved at the Nürburgring. According to what Tesla boasted three years ago, the machine that accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h only needs 1.9 seconds. In addition, the flag has a range of more than 1000 kilometers and a maximum speed of over 400 km / h.
This electric car is filled with an aerodynamic design, a very low center of gravity and the "SpaceX package" which includes cold air propellers to enhance the Tesla Roadster. Attributes that can make you think of a possible fast lap to prove to your rivals than you can in a scenario like the Nürburgring.
Tesla Model S Plaid at the Nürburgring
It would not be the first time that Tesla would meet the challenge of taking Green Hell's coveted fastest laps. A year ago, he traveled to Germany with some prototypes of the Tesla Model S Plaid, a sports variant equipped with three engines. The goal was to capture the Porsche Taycan disc and the truth is that California's units seemed to be very fast, but Tesla never published official times.
Although some witnesses said that the Tesla Model S Plaid managed to beat Porsche in 19 seconds, the truth is that the times were not known and some say that the reason for this is to reveal the performance at the Tesla Battery Day event or when the Tesla Model S Plaid presentation has rooms, probably before the end of 2020.
