Elon Musk has taken to Twitter once again to declare that flying cars will become a reality.

Musk says LA Hyperloop tunnel to be unveiled in December

Tesla’s CEO had responded to a user on Twitter praising the advancements that the Tesla Roadster has made over the past six years. Musk replied by saying that the new Roadster “will actually do something like this.”

The car is the latest Tesla Musk has promised to unveil in 2020. He has previously launched a Roadster with the rocket launch into space. Musk has further revealed that he plans on using SpaceX’s cold gas thruster with ultra-high pressure in place of the rear seats to make the car get off the ground.

Along with that, during an exchange on Twitter with tech vlogger Marques Brownlee, Musk made it very clear that he is indeed not joking and that Roadster will be able to hover in 2020.
