Designer Fabian Breeze drew a prototype racing car for Polestar specifically for the Roborace drone championship. It is called 1K, in honor of the T-1000 robot from the second part of "Terminator", made in the style of Polestar models - and it does not provide a single seat.

The drone is distinguished by a recognizable head optics pattern with LED daytime running lights "Hammer of Thor" and the characteristic shape of a false radiator grille - just like the models Polestar 1 and Polestar 2. There are huge carbon splitters at the front and rear of the body.
- In principle, the 1K does not have a cockpit: instead of it, a huge plexiglass panel is installed, demonstrating the electric power plant of the model - in particular, you can see the power cables, the color and location of which Fabian spied on the production Polestar models.
- On the edge of the rear splitter, the designer has put a sticker with the hashtag DeathToAllHumans ("death to all humanity"), and one of the sketches is accompanied by the slogan Humanity is Fcked (in a soft version of the translation - "Humanity rakes"). Fabian explains that according to his idea, the 1K drone is a kind of villain who dreams of destroying all people on the planet.
At the same time, the designer does not mention the power plant - and the technical regulations of the unmanned races themselves are still in development. It is likely that the hypothetical Polestar 1K will have enough power plant from the serial liftback Polestar 2, a competitor to TeslModel 3. In this case, we are talking about two electric motors with a total capacity of 408 horsepower and 660 Nm of torque.
- The Roborace Self-Driving Championship is being developed under the auspices of the FIA. It is planned that the competition will be held as part of the FormulE electric racing championship. The first trial stage took place in the summer of 2019.
