Elon Musk explained his ambitious plans for the Tesla Roadster in a new episode of the podcast The Joe Rogan Experience.
The Tesla Roadster is probably one of Elon Musk’s most anticipated contributions to the future. With the announcement that the Roadster will not arrive until 2022, people want to know what else they can expect from the car in addition to high acceleration. In a new episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast available on the Spotify platform, Musk explained some of his plans for the car. “We’re throwing some rocket technology into that car,” Musk said, hinting at a possible optional SpaceX package, but his plans are much more ambitious than expected.
Musk developed his vision with the words: “I want it to float. I’m trying to figure out how to make this thing float, without, you know, killing people. I thought maybe we could make it float, but not too high. So it could be hovering, for example, a meter above the ground or something. ”He therefore acknowledged the potential safety issues, and therefore suggested a relatively low hovering height. He said that if the vehicle was lowered sharply, the worst thing that could happen to the passengers would be a hard landing that would damage the suspension but would not kill the passengers. “If we put an altitude limit on it, it’ll probably be okay.”
Rogan also wondered if it would be realistically possible to travel with the Roadster while hovering, to which Musk simply said “yes” and added that it would be “fast enough” but that time limits would have to be set for the car to stay in the air. Provided that the legislation allows such a vehicle to become legal at all, this surcharge package will deprive the Roadster owner of the rear seats, as they would be replaced by a high-pressure carbon pressure vessel containing gas pressurized to about 10,000 psi.
However, if the Roadster’s hovering could not be done, gas engines behind the car should be possible anyway: “At least I’m sure we could make a propulsion system in which the vehicle registration plate would fold down in style. James Bond and behind it would be a rocket engine that would give you three tons of pressure. “
