Ferrari ponders the idea of ​​using rocket propulsion for its future sports car

Ferrari seems to be working on a patented technology very similar to what Tesla has in mind for its next-generation Roadster. A future Ferrari sports car could come with a rocket booster, something Elon Musk’s EV company thinks will use in its next-generation electric sports car, The Drive reports. . The Italian sports car brand patented its high-performance throttle lever technology in 2019, which was recently added to the US Patent database.

The patented technology shows the possibility of a concept that works like what Elon Musk once described for the SpaceX package of the next-generation Tesla Roadster. Tesla wants to use some kind of cold or compressed air thruster to increase acceleration and even allow the car to hover somehow. Ferrari’s patented technology, dubbed the pulse jet system, can use synthetic air thrusters for faster acceleration.

The automaker also claims that the technology will assist with braking and handling. The patent reveals that Ferrari will place tanks of compressed air or liquid fuel technology at the front, rear and sides of cars to make all of this possible, which sounds a lot like with rocket propulsion used in spacecraft to drive them. The patent filing reveals that there will be at least one compressed air tank and at least one air ejector tube, connected to the compressed air tank.

This entire system will be integrated into the mainframe and come with a series of outward facing nozzles. They can be activated to create respective airflows and can be arranged parallel and side by side. They will have the same orientation and dimensions to create different pneumatic thrusts to create the same inflow compressed air pressure. However, Ferrari’s patent does not reveal whether their pulse-jet technology will allow the car to hover slightly. Elon Musk imagines the next generation Tesla Roadster.
