    With a full charge, DragTimes says the car showed 317 miles of range and testing was set to begin.
    The results:

    Since the current motors in the car are already capable of pushing a couple hundred horsepower if given enough current, the possibilities are pretty crazy. This in a car that is rated at 80mpge, more...

    5000 lb Model S does 2.6 second 0-60mph?

    http://m.motortrend.com/roadtests/sedans/2015-tesla-model-s-p90d-ludicrous-upgrade-first-test-review/??web=SIM%3AMT don't know.


    Sounds like an abnomolly. Maybe a special press vehicle given to...

    Its not exactly fair to compare running it against another 3.0 turbo thats not running meth and most likely a more aggressive tune.

    If it was stock, it would have been awesome to see how how a P1 or even a 918 would have done.

    Here is a comparison between the P85D and the newest P90D. Looks like it definitely pulls harder even after 60mph.

    Absolutely poor top end pull... The old P85 used to run in the 12's but only trapped at 106mph. I used to tell people from a roll it would have a hard time with a stock 335i. So 115mph traps are...

    Also, assuming that M4 was starting a 2nd gear in the roll on, and was well into 4th gear before he even pulled a car length, that is close to 100 mph before he decisively pulled away from the Tesla....

    You have to give credit where its due. Both cars have different advantages in different types of races. The P85D is strong from 0-30mph. Consumers report did a test showing over 1.0 g of acceleration...
  11. I don't know if it will necessarily be cheaper....

    I don't know if it will necessarily be cheaper. Its similar drivetrain, battery, etc. And with the falcon doors and third row seats, no any easier to build than the S.

    Supposedly the X version will do 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds. Still pretty decent for a SAV.
  13. Wow...its not like they don't know what kind of...

    Wow...its not like they don't know what kind of transmission it has. They underlined "dual clutch." They indicated the car was manually shifted.
    And they just picked the closest description. ..its...

    I figured the M3 would be much quicker, but after just doing a quick search, if found according to this video, it is not:

    I already stated the i8 trapped 5mph slower, yet the M4 was only .20 seconds quicker in THIS test. Indicating the i8 launches better in normal driving conditions. (Your average stop light encounter)....

    And if you doubt what I am saying, just look at the Motor Trend Worlds Greatest Drag Race...The i8 takes the M4 off the line. In fact, it looks like the i8 was in the top 3-4 of the quickest cars in...

    Car and Driver said the 3.7 second M4 run was with a warm up burnout, and the fastest of any M4 sample they had tested by a good .20 seconds.

    So if your at an intersection, without your burnout,...

    Dec 8th, 2014 Motor Trend test puts the M4 at 4.0 seconds. I would say the M4 will not beat the i8 in the stop light Grand prix up to 60mph or so that you would max out on the city. And again, not...

    I did read. That's why I said stop light grand prix, not prepared drag strip with drag radials. The i8 will take the average M4 in Street trim across the intersection. Motor trend, etc have...

    So in the stop light GrandPrix, a i8 should handily beat the M4.

    You are correct, the complimentary engine changes would be a given with probability of a different block, etc. Exact same engine philosophy as the S55 just on a different scale. But I figured...

    I was saying the M4 did well considering it's displacement disadvantage. And if it's motor was closer in size (3.8L), still running the same boost psi and red line, it would have taken This M3 in...

    Why do you keep stating the obvious. I have said in numerous times now, without increasing the RPM, Static Compression, or Boost Pressure, a bigger displacement engine would make significantly more...

    Its for the same reasoning. I can't tell if you have reading comprehension problem, or just don't understand simple simple concepts. Sorry about your difficulties.
