    Let me guess you are a race car driver and the king of your local track? In your BMW no less. No matter what you do to your street based BMW, there will always be someone (or quite a few people)...

    The typical demographic of a Tesla owner is as far away from the drag strip or race track as you can find. The average Tesla owner is highly educated and wealthy. Lots of celebrities with some money...

    Probably just as much as a snooze-fest as the S Class, 7 series, A8, etc. which the Tesla handily outsells.

    You know I like to speed more than 95% of the population out there. Since I have gone...

    What else does the Tesla do besides getting 92-105MPGe and good drag strip numbers? How about tons or cargo room and seating for 5. How about the best autonomous driving technology than any of its...

    Yeah, it is such a strange, staged video. Look at the video in the 5:04 mark. You can see the Tesla does instantly jump a car length in front of everyone including the Ferrari. But you don't even see...

    It is merely a cheap and plentiful source to find a salvaged Volt Battery, that's all.

    It is amazing that the EP9 beat that track toy Radical SR8LM by over 2 seconds.

    We had an electric car show the other weekend. Part of National Electric Drive Week. It was my job to provide test drives in a P100D for 6 hours straight. The instant response and violent...

    New Nurburgring Lap Time Record

    So, the only 10 second family sedan sold in America is the all electric Tesla P100D with a 2.3 second 0-60 time and 80MPGe economy. Amazing performance. Can you imagine a gas engine being that quick...

    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?

    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.

    https://youtu.be/3kKXW2b63cA

    Here is a comparison between the P85D and the newest P90D. Looks like it definitely pulls harder even after 60mph.
  16. Absolutely poor top end pull... The old P85 used...

    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...
  19. 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.

    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,...
