Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen gave a rare update on the often delayed Tesla Roadster. 

The designer says that Tesla is still “feverishly” working on the electric hypercar that will be an “exciting flying machine.”

The new generation of the Roadster has been one of the most delayed programs at Tesla.

Tesla started taking reservations at the unveiling event for the impressive electric supercar that goes zero to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds with over 600 miles of range.

People who wanted to be first in line to get the vehicle had to put down between $50,000 and $250,000 in deposits.

The vehicle program was later delayed, and the CEO said that it wasn’t a priority for Tesla.
