That is an incomprehensible number. Just insanity.

Not sure how that's street legal. People are going to kill themselves in that thing.

Awesome tho

I remember when the Tesla was just an ad in a magazine back in 2008 as I was about to graduate undergrad. I swore to myself I'd own one. Bronco not even a thought in my imagination

Now I have zero desire for the Tesla and want something that's literally the opposite lol
Still think it's an amazing feat of a vehicle

Unfuckingreal. Wow. I have a very large V8 and that sedan would make it look silly 🤣 At least mine sounds good lol.

Check that asterisk. That is a hypothetical acceleration number, as it will never get that in the real world due to tire slippage etc. Shady marketing if you ask me... Higher end cars have started being advertised with these hypothetical numbers instead of real world performance and its just sketchy.

I mean even if it's 2 seconds, it's quite a feat

2.07 on non prepped asphalt. Fastest production car ever. The Tesla Roadster with the lighter batteries ( 4680) and smaller chassis is going to be insane.

I have a Model Y performance and
acceleration can be brutal/dizzying if I do several hard pulls in a row. The Plaid is like roller coaster level G force and can easily see people get disoriented and possibly pass out.

One of the biggest challenges for Ford, GM, Stelantis are the unions. They are a legacy burden that acts like an anvil around their necks.

Would be more impressed if they made a single Tesla with functioning turn signals or an operator who could utilize that massive navigation screen to think one goddamn turn or exit ahead of where they currently where.

Teslas are cars that pick the driver. They picked the same drivers who owned the Prius, but also wanted more luxury. (And all the negative connotations that implies)

But hey, I only see about two dozen of the cars in every commute (of 5 miles), so what would I know.

Tesla’s are 6 times less likely to be in an accident or incident than other automakers…
