      just biscuit money for that ballistic hypercar performance,
      faggot teens today buy 500 dollar jeans and zombie phones
      from their bloated donors loose change.

      some speakers on the outside as well and watch the puzzled looks

        By the time you at LCT & NSW stamp duty on top, it adds around $24k to the price. Apparently they will add the extra speed (not capacity) to existing p85d owners down the track. You can avoid the LCT & stamp duty by going that way.

          The batteries & motors would weigh more than the Vette powertrain & fuel-tank wouldn't it?

          Hey ... segueing to an interesting thought ... an electric race car wouldn't change weight as it used fuel would it?
          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.

            Very slightly, but barely enough to measure with really accurate scales let alone worry about.

              The P85 battery pack weighs 600kg and has dimensions of measuring 8 feet (2,450 mm) in length, about 5 feet (2,440 mm) in width and four inches (102 mm) in thickness

              Where are you going to stick all that plus the electric motor and associated electricals?

                  The problem is getting all the electrons to the motor at a high rate for a long time. Teslas will eventually go into limp mode when thrashed for a continuous amount of time (ie race track)

                    Ludicrous package is a physical upgrade as well, upgraded wiring and fuses among other things.
                    As for the pricing, I don't think many people would worry about that considering you're looking at $200k+ anyway, I just priced one ticking everybox got it to AUD$225k.

                      Auto/no gears, awd, powerband goes to peak torque immediately

                      Sounds boring as fuck to punt down a drag strip to be honest.. the car doesnt even need you to be in it realistically

                        I had a P85 for about half a day. Went like stink in a straight line. I ended up getting half the advertised range due to the right foot. The handling wasn't that great.

                          Tesla's should come with a RC, 1:1 scale RC racing

                            Apart from the (minor) storage upgrade they only change a few things to access the extra power (as you say):
                            http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/three-dog-day

                            Also ACT pays no stamp duty on electric vehicles so add $20k odd to your figure if you live in NSW. If I get one I think I'll be leaving a few options unticked and get them installed later (eg ludicrous mode) if I feel that I really need them.

                                Drag strip is about being the fastest; don't see how "interesting" comes into drag racing.

                                Being an IT company rather than knowing anything about suspension etc, that's no surprise.
                                Being American it's even less of a surprise.
