Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he would like to teach the next generation Tesla Roadster to hover above the ground. For the car, Musk intends to offer an additional package of options, named after his own aerospace company – Space X. The entrepreneur said this in an interview with American TV presenter Joe Rogan.

It was originally planned that the Space X package would include compact rocket engines running on liquefied gas and installed around the perimeter of the electric vehicle. However, Musk is thinking about putting the same cars below.
According to his idea, this should allow the car to take off to a height of 1 to 2 meters and move forward for a while.
“We are going to apply some rocket technology … The main task is not to kill anyone,” – said the head of Tesla.
He added that if the car falls, “only the suspension will break, the person will not be hurt.”
Also, the Tesla Roadster with the Space X package will include heavy-duty high-pressure cylinders. They will be located behind the front seats to supply fuel to additional power units.
If an entrepreneur manages to bring this idea to life, it will become a big problem for regulators, noted The Verge.
The second generation Roadster is expected to go on sale next year. The electric car will be equipped with three motors with a total capacity of more than 1,000 horsepower. According to the company, the car will be able to accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour in less than 2 seconds. Its maximum speed will exceed 400 kilometers per hour.
