Top Speed and Acceleration

Top Speed and Acceleration

Hi. I have been a Tesla fan ever since the first roadster came out. Ever since then I have been researching many electric car companies. The most impressive of which is the Rimac's first all-electric $1M supercar the Concept One. Which uses a two-speed double-clutch gearbox. This enables it to have top speed and acceleration.

So my question is would Tesla consider using one in its new Roadster?

Let me know what you think. :)

The new roadster does not need a two speed gearbox with 7000+ ft lbs torque.
It can be geared for 250+ mph and still have enough torque at the wheels to fry the tires at almost any speed below 150mph.
