I knew this was a Spaceballs movie reference when I heard “ludicrous mode”. “Ludicrous speed” is attained by a spaceship in the Spaceballs movie.
It leaves us wondering what comes next for Tesla. Bizarre Mode? Singularity Generator? A test track built around the Large Hadron Collider? Actually, Musk is, yet again, one step ahead.
In a statement, the billionaire hinted: “There is of course only one thing beyond ludicrous, but that speed is reserved for the next generation Roadster in 4 years: maximum plaid.”
That’s an obscure reference to the ultimate speed in the universe, according to 1987 sci-fi spoof Spaceballs. Geeky movies aside, will human beings actually be able to cope with the sheer pace of the next Tesla Roadster? We’ll find out in 2019…
