    New Tesla S has "Ludicrous Speed" mode - 0-100k in 2.8secs

    Heh heh ... thought you or the mag were paraphrasing, but it's actually called that!
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

      Not only is 0-60 mph acceleration time improved by 5 percent, but the quarter-mile time also drops to 10.9 seconds.
      I'll admit that I don't pay much attention to electric cars and simply have an understanding that Tesla's are by far the best of that bunch so I'm genuinely impressed by this

        Do we really need an electric luxury sedan that can out run just about anything off the showroom floor?
        Oh who am I kidding, USD$10k is well worth it so I can look smug while collecting pinks.

          We "need" it a helluva lot more than we "need" all those gerlytrux that're selling up a storm.

              Saw one at the drags, spoke to the owner. He said his "Base" model hit a limiter at 170km/h.

              On the night it outran the best C63 time I've seen on the track. Owner was claiming 433km per charge around Perf.

              Do want one.

                Hellcat vs Tesla.... 1/4 mile at end of video. tesla S gets jump (AWD) but Hellcat does a good job chasing it down.

                  That was actually a really good video. Presenter is pretty damn entertaining.

                  I think I agree 100% with his verdict too.
                  (having driven neither).

                      The 85kwhr battery pack is made up of ~7000 Panasonic 18650 NCR cells. The new silicon anode cell will see ~25% increase in energy storage capacity and increase in discharge current.

                      It's funny how in the future we'll be waiting for increases in battery company tech in order to see faster cars instead of looking at a cam specs glossy.

                        P85D is very fast 0-100 but does just 116mph over the 1/4

                        That's stock powerful sedan fast, nothing special

                        Now I see they have shaved over half a sec off the 1/4 time hopefully this now pulls 120+mph on the 1/4 so it's at least a match for its gas guzzling competition even though from any set of lights this will smash almost anything over 100m

                          The 4wd will give it a huge advantage over traditional muscle cars on poor condition roads compared to a dragstrip as well.

                            If it does a 10.9s quarter, what gas guzzling sedan competition is beating it?
