The news comes during a shareholder’s meeting, when an investor inquired what was going on with the Roadster and Musk replied by promising that the upgrade would come this year. The Tesla Roadster’s production ended three years ago and it’s unlikely that a successor will be coming anytime soon as Tesla focuses on production for the Model X and then the Gen III affordable electric car.
