The second generation Tesla Roadster was actually supposed to go into production in 2020 – but so far the project has been delayed for various reasons. Now, CEO Elon Musk confirms that the design and construction isn’t even done yet.
- 2nd generation Tesla Roadster is scheduled for completion in late 2023.
- Sales start and production will “hopefully” take place in 2024.
- Buyers are required to wait for a minimum of one year.
- Design and construction still in the works, but CEO Musk is optimistic.
Tesla Roadster 2 continues to default
This work should now be completed by the end of this year, at least according to the current plans of the Tesla boss. The vehicle should “hopefully” go into production next year – at least that’s what Elon Musk said at the Tesla shareholders’ meeting.

It is now clear: buyers who were or are interested in the new Roadster will have to wait at least a year before it becomes clear that the first vehicles will be delivered. The Roadster 2 was originally announced in 2017 at the unveiling of the Tesla Semi.
Production postponed again
The new Tesla Roadster was initially planned for the market launch in 2020 and has since been postponed more or less publicly. Only the targeted new sales or production starts were announced on an annual basis, there was no further information. The so-called Cybertruck probably also got in the way of the general planning of the engineers. So far, surprisingly little has been learned about the Roadster. There were no leaks and some experts were already rumored that Musk had canceled the project.
So now there is new momentum in the release of the new model. Revealing the current timeframe for the Roadster, however, was not discussed as planned. Musk was asked about it by a journalist, otherwise nobody would have heard from the Roadster again.
