The Tesla Roadster is an upcoming all-electric battery-powered four-seater sports carconcept made by Tesla, Inc. Tesla has said it will be capable of 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 1.9 seconds, which is quicker than any street legal production car to date at its announcement in November 2017. The Roadster is the successor to Tesla's first production car, which was the 2008 Tesla Roadster.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that Roadster sales will begin after the release of the revised Model S 'Plaid', which should enter production in late 2021. Musk said in a tweet that higher-performance trim levels will be available beyond the base specifications, including a SpaceX package which would "include ~10 small rocket thrusters arranged seamlessly around car" which would supposedly allow the car dramatic improvements in "acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering", and even the ability to fly.
