We have a design for a Submarine Car – Elon Musk

1 min read

Answering to a question at Tesla’s annual share holder meeting , Elon Musk revealed that Tesla company has designed a new submarine car like the one from the 1977 James Bond movie, “The Spy Who Loved Me.”

The movie  featured a modified Lotus Esprit that could change into a submarine.

An individual questioned whether Tesla has any plans to make submarine cars.

“It’s funny you should mention that… we do actually have a design for a submarine car, like the one from ‘The Spy Who Loved Me‘ – the Lotus that sort of turns into a sub.” — Musk said.

He also admitted that the market for this type of car is small and he wouldn’t spend much time on this.

“You can actually have a submarine car — it’s like technically possible. I think the market for this will be small. Small but enthusiastic.”– he added.

He also clarified, “It would be a bit of a distraction but maybe we’ll make one as a show car.”

The car used in the movie  was lost for years, but was eventually found in a storage locker bought blindly for just $100 and back in 2012, Elon Musk secretly bought it for ~$900,000 in a bidding war against another car collector.

During the Q&A session , Musk also made it clear that Tesla does not have a “demand problem and also explained Tesla’s plans for a pickup truck, semi truck and driver-less vehicles.
