So watched a little roll race between the McLaren 765LT and the Tesla Plaid!

I was real pumped up! Though the "Dobre Brothers" took their time actually GETTING to it!

So I paused for a second and stated "For the GLORY of England!"

Except the glory went to the United States of America!

Inserts tear emoji! OO

Oh and it only took a couple of minutes to get the Plaid into "drag mode" accordingly to him. Not the 10 or 15 minutes people are claiming? O:

Apparently it takes 100,000 litres of water to extinguish a battery fire in a Tesla. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come for the Plaid?

It seems that the Plaid can do 9.69@147mph with 3 passengers. You'd need at least 1300hp to achieve that in a M5 or E63S.

Starting to wonder how many people are gonna end up dead by crashing in a wall in this thing. Lots of stunts have been made possible since the Taycan is out after all ;)

Real life figures hot off the press. It's actually just beaten out the Bugatti Chiron in time but not quite trap speed. Factoring in roll out.

Quite quick. :)

I think Jason Fenske has nailed the Plaid 0-60mph controversy using sound logic. Tesla's claims are quite simply WRONG lol It's 0-60mph not 6-60mph

In the Carwow test the Rimac Nevera did 0-60mph in 2.08, and the 1/4 mile in 8.62sec at 171.79mph.
Nothing come close!!!!!!

Even though I don't like Elon's attitude, I gotta say that this car is impressive. It rivals the sf90 on a straight line and on the track it seems to have a decent level of agility (on Motortrend it's 0.1s faster then the Taycan, and pretty close to the M5). Sure, the good laptime is also due to its insane acceleration, but on Motortrend agility matters, and 23.5s is a good laptime nonetheless. I think that on most tracks this car will be very fast, thanks to its acceleration. I am curious to see how fast. It should beat the Taycan Turbo S, and probably the AMG gt63s and the M5 cs as well. It should beat a 992 Carrera S (which is as fast as m5cs basically). The question is how it will do compared to actual supercars like the 992 Turbo S, the Huracan Evo, the f8 Tributo, the 720s. With that kind of acceleration it might put up a good fight (although I think that those cars will be hard to beat on a track). On a straight line though it's nearly unbeatable. For the price (and the level of practicality) there's nothing quite like it. Tesla is basically making hypercar performances available to the mainstream public, without sacrificing practicality. However... I think that other manufacturers can fill the gap. All that Porsche needs to do is give the Taycan Turbo S 300 additional hp (without making the price any higher than it already is) and Porsche will be competitive again. It just needs bigger batteries. The chassis is already up the task (until the Roadster comes out at least).

You should make a comparison against the sf90. It's the only car that's comparably fast off the line and at higher speeds (the 765lt accelerates just as fast but it's slower off the line).

We now have the Plaid Pike's Peak race car which has been stripped out and has a huge rear wing. The most evident thing is that this car has significantly more power than the Plaid 1:30.3 car. My guess is that it has at least 1200hp given that it was doing over 140mph past the bridge on the main straight ie. same acceleration and speed as the 1300hp Lucid Air car there.

I just heard what Musk had to say about this car "faster than any Porsche and safer than any Volvo". He's so full of himself and at the same time, so insecure. Why does he constantly have to bring up the rivals? It's like he's obsessed with beating Porsche since the Taycan came out... He always tries to bash the rivals with claims that sometimes aren't even true. He has no class or whatsoever. Let the numbers speak for themselves, instead of bragging and bringing down the rivals (with questionable statements). The car might be crazy fast but Elon's attitude is truly unbearable for my taste.

Tesla "faster on track than McLaren Senna and probably even Formula 1 car" Model S Plaid

If Tesla Model S Plaid was Formula 1 safety car, there would be no safety in Formula 1, because everyone would have to go full gas just to try to keep up with it.
