Talk about a star-studded guest list.
Last week, Tesla hosted a holiday party at its Design Studio in Hawthorne, California. The private event was most likely open to Tesla employees but based on several posts on social media, the company also invited a handful of influencers who are fans of the brand. Details about the party are scarce but we did get a glimpse of the festivities from Instagram posts by Nanunlimited and Giftedkicks.
Fans in attendance were treated to rare appearances of the second-generation Tesla Roadster, the Tesla Cybertruck, and the Cybertruck's accompanying ATV. This is just the seconds time the Cybertruck has been spotted in public following its debut and one of the few times people outside of Tesla have been given a closer look at the Roadster.
Tesla has yet to make an official announcement confirming the Roadster's official production date. The second-generation sports car is set to have some remarkable stats including a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds, a top speed of 250 mph, and a 620-mile range. There will also be a "SpaceX package," which reportedly adds cold air thrusters. Of course, all these details are still hypothetical and the Roadster at the holiday party still looks like the same concept vehicle shown at the reveal event - futuristic steering wheel and all.
As for the Cybertruck, it also looks just like the example shown at the initial reveal. It still lacks side mirrors (which is currently illegal in the United States) and it still sports a design that may cause certification issues in Europe. We are intrigued that Tesla displayed two examples of the Cybertruck, showing that the company has developed two (likely functioning) prototypes. There doesn't appear to be any differences between the two trucks but seeing them at the same time proves there is more than one prototype in existence.
This is also the first time since the Cybertruck reveal where anyone has been up close and personal with the Tesla ATV. Some internet theories speculate the ATV is just a modified Yamaha with an electric drivetrain but the photos and video don't shed any light on that either way.
