New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, Musk says

Musk said the autopilot issue during lane-merging is better in the current software and will be fully fixed in the August update.

Apart from the rockets, no new specs were revealed on his Twitter thread, however Musk did include some of his background history and passion for cars. What's more, Tesla claims that the vehicle will have a range of 620 miles. By using multiple systems, Musk hopes it can be used to decelerate the vehicle and even provide thrust for sharp turns.

Elon Musk made a surprise unveiling back in November 2017 when he presented the new Roadster.

Judging by Musk's tweets, it looks as if you'll only lose out on the backseats if you opt for the rocket-powered version of the Tesla Roadster.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Is Free on PS Plus Now
While there was no new Black Ops 4 news shared by Activision during Sony's E3 showcase, there was a big update made. Call of Duty: Black Ops III was originally out in 2015 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4.

After months of teasers and tweets, Tesla finally unveiled its all-electric lorry in November past year and, at the same event, it upstaged it with something no one was expecting: an all-new Tesla Roadster. It already has a couple different sedans in the Model S and Model 3, along with the Model X SUV.

The rocket boosters take the form of a "sophisticated bottle" that fires bursts of high-pressure air out the back of the sports auto, the electric-transport news site adds. "The point of all this is just to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars". The negative coverage of Autopilot, combined with ongoing challenges with Model 3 production, battered Tesla's stock, though it has recovered some losses this month. The additions are promised to dramatically improve acceleration for the already insanely fast Roadster, which will be able to zip from standstill to 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds sans "rocket" boost.

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. The new Roadster starts at $200,000 and is expected to arrive in 2020.
