Elon Musk has announced the return of Tesla's Roadster, but make no mistake, this is not a repeat performance. The numbers tell the tale: a sprint time of 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds, which would make it the quickest production vehicle ever made. A top speed over 250 mph, and a 200kWh battery pack delivering a 620-mile range. Tesla lists the car as a four-seater with all-wheel drive and a removable top. The starting base price is pegged at $200,000, with a $50,000 deposit required upfront. Production is scheduled to begin in 2020.
