Tesla’s next-gen Roadster to take on the Nürburgring, confirms Musk

Joey Klender ByJoey KlenderPosted on September 20, 2020 Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that the next-generation Roadster, a revamped version of the company’s first-ever vehicle, will run at the Nürburgring track in Germany next year. The Nürburgring is one of the most prestigious auto racing tracks in the world. Nicknamed “the Green Hell” for its extensive length and tough-to-remember layout, it has been one of the focal points of Tesla’s upcoming performance vehicles for the past year. The electric automaker set up a temporary residence at the track in late 2019 to test its Model S Plaid Powertrain. However, the Roadster is an entirely different animal than the Plaid Model S. With 650 miles of range, a 0-60 MPH time of 1.9 seconds, and a 250+ MPH top speed, the Roadster can break every record ever set at the Green Hell because of its impressive specifications.
