The Tesla Roadster’s SpaceX package will replace the back seats with rockets

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Musk has promised that Autopilot eventually would allow full hands-free driving. Okay, so perhaps Musk's hyperbolic nature is shining through when he's talking about a Tesla flying, but subsequent tweets reveal that the Tesla CEO isn't kidding around when it comes to outfitting a Tesla Roadster with rocket technology.

The role of Autopilot in some accidents involving Tesla vehicles has raised some controversies about the technology.

In context: Tesla's Autopilot has been under the spotlight recently for all the wrong reasons, but the company has just announced that it will soon improve the system's autonomous abilities. Now, he wants to dethrone the McLaren F1 by proving a purely electric vehicle could outperform it.

Tesla offers a $5,000 option called Enhanced Autopilot for vehicles equipped with Autopilot 2.0 hardware.

Tesla's vehicles have been involved in several crashes this year and at least two people have died in those crashes.

After a May 2016 crash in Florida that killed a former Navy SEAL, Autopilot took partial blame in an NTSB probe. It's created to fool the car's Autopilot-linked torque sensor into thinking the driver has their hands on the steering wheel.

Tesla has not confirmed nor denied the news, says Fortune, as the company does not comment on Musk's claims, as part of its "general policy".

According to Autopilot Buddy's website, it works on Model S and Model X and the company is developing one for the Model 3.

Tesla shares closed 0.50% higher at $317.66.

While much of the work at the Tesla plant is done by robots, how Tesla treats its human workers is what's behind a new proposal in Sacramento.

Tesla founder Elon Musk has announced that the company's upcoming Roadster sports auto will be offered with an optional "SpaceX package" with actual rockets.

"If Tesla's going to get a tax break, they should treat their workers better", Ben Field, Executive Officer of the South Bay AFL-CIO Labor Council.

Musk also stated that the Model Y could overtake the Model 3 in terms of sales, owing to the popularity that SUVs enjoy in worldwide markets. And we think that is enough time for the tech-maverick Elon Musk to figure out how those 10 rockets will blend into the auto.
