Elon Musk says a number of unusual things at public interviews and occasions. So, in a current podcast interview with popular host Joe Rogan, Musk said that he wants to make the upcoming Tesla Roadster hover over the ground.
In the latest episode of Joe Rogan’s Experience podcast, Musk visited the host for the third time). At one point during the interview, Musk informed Rogan that he wants to make the Tesla Roadster hover without killing or hurting anybody such as the driver, passengers, or any passer-by.
“I want it to hover, and I was trying to figure out how to make this thing hover without, you know, killing people. Maybe it can hover like a meter above the ground, or something like that. If you plummet, it’ll blow out the suspension, but you’re not gonna die,” the Tesla CEO stated.
Now, the concept for hovering Roadsters stems from Musk’s 2018 remark about including rocket thrusters to the electrical car. However, there have been no additional reports on that. So, if you’re hoping to see the Roadster come equipped with the said technology, then I think you might be disappointed when the fastest Tesla vehicle launches in the market in the future.
Apart from this bizarre suggestion, the CEO also talked about the incident when the Cybertruck’s unbreakable window glass was smashed on stage with a sledgehammer. He added that it was a demo glass and “production glass is always better than demo glass”.
