Elon Musk has officially confirmed that the 2nd generation Tesla Roadster has been delayed to 2022, which means yet again a Tesla car is running behind schedule. In the case of the Roadster, this is a two-year delay. The Roaster was first unveiled in 2017 and it was supposed to be the fastest prediction car with mind-boggling specifications that induced a 0-96 kmph acceleration in 1.9 seconds and a range of almost 1,000 kilometres. People who have wanted the car have had to put down a down-payment of upwards of $50,000. Musk has revealed that the car has been delayed in favour of the CyberTruck which also may get delayed to 2022.

The Roadster was a surprise unveil by Musk in 2017

"Finishing engineering [of the new Tesla Roadster] this year, production starts next year. Aiming to have release candidate design drivable late summer. Tri-motor drive system and advanced battery work were important precursors," Musk tweeted. 

Tesla has already pushed the limits of the Tesla Model S Plaid+ variant which can also do 0-96 kmph in less than 2 seconds. It also means that Tesla will likely push the Roadster beyond what was originally announced.
