New Tesla Roadster Might Sport Some Thrusters, Elon Musk Revealed

Musk tells fans 'full self driving' Teslas are near, as investigators dig into Autopilot accidents

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Musk tweeted and said that the flame spitting engines and the burning rocket fuel are not legal. Autopilot resources, he said, had so far "rightly focused entirely on safety".

The latest version of Tesla's "over-the-air" software - downloaded wirelessly to compatible vehicles - will be Tesla's first major update in nearly two years.

Those potential benefits would be in addition to the previously announced specifications for the electric vehicle, which includes a 200kWh battery pack that will enable the auto to achieve a 0-60 miles per hour time of 1.9 seconds.

However, letting him about the upcoming Tesla Version 9.0 including major updates for Autopilot 2.0.

"That issue is better in latest autopilot software rolling out now and fully fixed in August update as part of our long-awaited Tesla Version Nine", Musk shared.

The good news is that Tesla is updating these features, and by August all the Tesla vehicles with autonomous functionality will be able to self-drive with your hands off the wheel.

Just what "full self driving" means to Musk remains in question.

While this doesn't guarantee the carmaker's version 9 software will make your Tesla a self-driving vehicle, it at the very least, suggests that the new software would include the first steps to fully-autonomous driving.

Musk replied: "You have my word, Marques". Also with the Model Y SUV in the pipeline, the new Roadster has been slated for 2020.

Tesla wouldn't say if the system performed as designed.

The morning crash in Mountain View on Highway 101 killed the driver, 38-year-old Walter Huang.

But for the last six seconds, hands were not detected on the steering wheel.

Spent air from the thrusters would be refilled immediately using the Roadster's batteries to power air pumps, which in lesser electric vehicles may be a reduced range concern.

"Tesla has a history of using consumers as guinea pigs", said David Friedman, the director of cars and product policy at Consumers Union, the advocacy arm of Consumer Reports.

Among other factors, investigators are trying to determine how the car's camera, radar and ultrasonic sensors were working and what they were tracking.
