    Looks like the 7 seat Model S prototype is going to be running quicker ring times than just about sedan has ever achieved to date?

    The point is that the Tesla is a more than capable FAMILY STREET car. Supposedly this was the 7 seat model. Doesn`t need to have cats removed or run race fuel to run low 10 second quarter mile times...

    I think a car that can set a track record at Laguna Seca is plenty capable on the street. A car that can run low 10's on a non drag prepped surface, and still get 80mpge with no illegal smog mods or...

    TeslaRacingChannel on YouTube ran a 10.5x in the newest Model S. Also Elon has an updated prototype to test in Germany, and one that just ran a record time for a sedan at Laguna Seca. Without Randy...

    With a little software tuning, improved pads and tires, the Model 3P lapped Streets of Willow decisively quicker than the Alfa and most others. It picked up over 2 seconds with these simple changes!...

    Yes it will take a battery breakthrough. But as I was saying, with how much of a handicap battery technology presents today, electric cars have evolved impressively. And the fact of the matter is...

    Probably some sort of electric-hybrid drive train at first. F1 cars use it, as does the P1. Aren't those pretty good performance/drivers cars too? No need to fight it.
  15. On the flip side, there are a higher percentage...

    On the flip side, there are a higher percentage of EV driver's who say they will never go back to a petrol burning car. And I can guarantee it's not for just objective reasons.
    And you are right, ...

    Guess you didn't watch the video. Car already exists. They were giving test rides in it. Car will be here soon, racing all kinds of old loud cars on you tube. More people will realize the fate of gas...

    If you just want a rewarding experience, just drive a lightweight Mazda Miata with a fart can exhaust. Everything feels fast. I personally would prefer the faster machine, and if it is electric, even...

    Huge difference with RWD traction though when comparing a rear engine car 911 vs a front engine M3/M4.
    Just curious, how do the Ring times compare between the new porky dragster M5 and the nimble...

    Impressive 9.59 Second Electric Car.

    Also ran a 2.2 sec 0-60 times. On the Dragy leaderboard he is currently the quickest member on the American car list. This is impressive because it is using small Chevy Volt batteris and older Tesla...

    Well assuming the M5 had 150Lbs more in passenger weight, that is like spotting the AMG 15 horsepower. Take the passenger out of the BMW and put him in the AMG and the difference would be significant.

    That is absolutely wrong. From 60-150mph, the gap widens, with the Caddy taking over 3 seconds longer where the AWD should actually hurt the others. You can't use percentage for time splits, because...

    Will need to see how the Tesla 2.0 does on that track. Because with a high 8 second quarter mile time, it will make most of these gas cars look silly on the street as their engines scream in vain....
  24. 9 second Rimac does 1.85 sec 0-60 mph and 258 mph top speed.

    This car is also loaded with technology. Although the upcoming Tesla roadster is supposed to run high 8s at a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, you could challenge any street bike in this street...

    Model X runs about 11.4 @ 118mph according to the timeslip.
    And that is a 5400lb vehicle that wasn't fully charged on the DragTimes test.
