2020 Tesla Roadster Makes Surprise Debut, Does 0-60 in 1.9 Seconds

  2020 Tesla Roadster Makes Surprise Debut, Does 0-60 in 1.9 Seconds Tesla didn’t just have its highly anticipated semi-truck to reveal on Thursday. The electric car maker surprised everyone when one of the semis unloaded an all-new Tesla Roadster from its trailer. Tesla claims the sleek, targa-top two-door can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 1.9 seconds, go 0-100 mph in 4.2 second, and complete the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds, numbers that would make it the quickest production car in the world.

For 69 years, the judges of the Grand National Roadster Show look to crown America's Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR). However, there is more to it than just those amazing drop top cars, and this notion was especially apparent to us as we walked around this year's GNRS at Pomona, CA.

What people have begun to appreciate is the openly varied nature of the show. The AMBR will always go to a roadster and will always be judged by LA Roadsters. However, outside that trophy ceremony is a show that nearly every car enthusiast would love. The Roadster Show is more than just that award; it's a celebration of all things Americana.

The vendors bring out cars that are just as show worthy, sometimes even the display pieces are worth a day spent just looking at and admiring. Talented artists give paint companies incredible pieces of work to showcase new colors, techniques, and tools of the trade. And then there are the cars that paid to drive in and hang out during the show.

This is where enthusiasts like the rest of us come out to show off what they have been working on this past winter. You get T-buckets, Roadsters, Trucks, Muscle Cars, and the occasional Tiger that you've probably not seen before until today. There were two on hand, so if you missed them, you'll have to wait for the next show.

One of the awesome car clubs that were in attendance were the Dead Sleds. Patina, pinstriping, rat rods, and hand lettering were their calling cards. Along with those, the classic Lowrider designs that LA is known for were on display. While some might find some of the designs controversial, you can't say they weren't well executed.

The one more common style was lace work, a style that's easy to do, but hard to do well, and we were especially impressed with the pinstripe and gold-leaf work that went into the design on one of the Harley-Davidson motorcycles on display.

Inside the main show building, many local stripers participated in the Pinstripers Reunion, offering their work to be sold at auction. The benefits went to the "Every ONE Free" Organization, a community group dedicated to ending human trafficking based in Pomona, CA. One of the best indoor features were the collection of older hot rods.

The classic cars that come to your mind when you think of the term. Gassers, old nitro cars, and exquisite examples of what the 40s to the 60s brought to our culture. There was something for everyone who wanted old-school, American V8 at the 2018 GNRS.
