Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the company is going to delay the Roadster so that they can get the Cybertruck out sooner. I'm all for this since the demand is exponentially higher than the Roadster.
Musk made the announcement while appearing on the Joe Rogan Podcast.
When Rogan asked when he could buy a Roadster, Musk responded he could not provide a date, but said other initiatives, including a ramp-up in production of the Model Y crossover and the construction of a vehicle factory in Berlin, were priorities.
"Roadster is kind of like dessert," Musk said. "We gotta get the meat and potatoes and greens and stuff."
Musk also said Tesla should produce the Cybertruck, a futuristic-looking medium classification truck, before working on the Roadster.
Tesla announced the Roadster, a battery-powered four-seater, at the end of 2017 and at the time said the car would be faster than any street-legal production car. Musk in the past has said Roadster sales would begin after a revised version of its Model S sedan is released, which was widely expected to be at the end of 2020.
