Tesla in space

Does anyone know if the Tesla going into space is a Lotus/Tesla or the newer one?

It was just a joke. He's not really sending a Tesla into space.

Apparently he's changed his mind (maybe). Hard to tell as he said this about the payload of the Falcon Heavy (Tesla) weeks ago and then recanted. Now it's 'official', but I wouldn't hold my breath.

He also posted/tweeted about his love of floors. He was just messing with people.

He's a bit eccentric.
