Musk reckons his Model S just set the record for fastest 4 door ever at Laguna Seca. I wonder what they fiddled with? Maybe removed some batteries to lower the weight lol?

Probably fiddled with many things, but this is at least feasible, unlike the Nürburgring claims / hopes.

I am glad the people are ok. https://www.rt.com/russia/466247-tesla-blast-moscow-injured/

Is safe autopilot truly possible or is Elon Musk delusional (and the entire AI echo chamber in Silicon Valley)

too much torque will kill you :)

democrats are teslas and republicans are corvettes

who's side are you on ?


User avatar

SpeedKing  1m ago

The two aren't mutually exclusive ie. mass autopilot is possible sometime in the near future although i wouldn't trust it however Musk is delusional coz he thinks his shit doesn't stink urgh

mass autopilot is possible sometime in the near future

That is actually quite a claim, and you must have some insight that makes you so convinced. I am more reserved about these AI claims.

Driving in a snow storm at night is sometimes damn near impossible even with all the plasticity and magic of human brain. If its that hard to do with natural general intelligence, you have to expect the artificial device to have close to the same level of "plasticity" or ability to navigate these ill defined environments.

Think of that blizzard example at night, where you can't see a damn thing yet you just "go by feel" and follow the red taillights of car in front . Objectively, this is absolutely wrong, almost suicidal, but we can afford to ignore the fact that we are almost driving blind, because we have higher abstract levels of reasoning, far beyond the image recognizer / classifier ANN that Teslas autopilot is.

It is strange how half of the Silicon Valley and the entire auto industry has been sold on the idea of universal auto pilot in near future. Billions have been invested so far and we are no closer to the goal than we were year ago.

Could this all just be yet another sign that there is a tech bubble in the Valley that's much like the one in 2000? The absurd valuations of companies like Uber, Lyft, Waymo (Morgan Stanley has valued Waymo at 175 billion !!!!!!), Netflix, Beyond Meat etc certainly warrant this comparison.

Yes, we did get a very nice boost in AI / ANN industry in recent years, but this is a market thats flush with Federal Reserve induced free money (big guys can borrow for free) and it's a hammer that is constantly searching for any kind of a nail - anything tech related that shows any promise is met with deluge of investment and self perpetuating hype cycle which attracts yet more investment and more hype etc.

Just like the financial markets have frontrun the reality of growth and economy, I think we (or most of us) and definitely the Silicon Valley investors have frontrun all the possible growth and developments in AI and perhaps priced in things which are not possible or only possible after decades. Maybe this universal auto pilot is one of those things.

SpeedKing  1m ago @FastestLaps

Autopilot is still a work in progress and unlike Musk's all too often hyperbole it's still not there yet but i envisage all the problems will be ironed out within 5 years(my idea of the near future). Perhaps i'm being too optimistic but given the acceleration in tech over the years it seems quite feasible. When one looks at how utterly useless and dangerous a significant percentage of drivers are it's a good thing. Mind you when i see how peeps drive in choc-a-block cities in Asia i think we'll need a miracle to sort that out lol

I kind of have to agree with Dr. Cosimo about the Corvettes are republicans thing, but not about the tesla thing. In New England, the democrat capital of the USA, you will never see a Corvette. Some rich old guys who live on the waterfront have sports cars like Corvettes, Ferraris, Lambos, and Mercedes's up the wazoo, but that's about it for those who own them. They're so Liberal up in Massachusetts that you can't drive 1/2 a mile without seeing a Forester or an Outback, or some college kid's WRX. However, Tesla's aren't everywhere there. Make no mistake, I've seen more in Mass than anywhere else (Boston has tons of Supercharger stations and is full of rich guys who can afford Teslas), but Teslas are uncommon in other areas because one reason: Winter. As a person who lived near Worcester for 10 years (long enough to develop an accent), we get winters that last from late October to late April, and dumps something like 3 feet of snow during a big storm. and I'd say around 6 feet in total per winter. (Don't believe what Google tells you). Tesla's are notoriously bad in the cold, and even some of the tesla owners have an Outback or Forester or some sort of Toyota truck for the wintertime. It's not just that either:, Tesla's fancy-ass suspension can't handle the crappy, pothole ridden roads in Mass (that's how you can tell you've entered the state) and I'd also like to see a Model X try to drive through Providence RI without getting destroyed from their infrastructure, or more commonly, stolen.

I'm definitely not a big Tesla fan, but those figures (Taycan Turbo) don't look too impressive while compared to Tesla S 100D. Maybe 0-200 will let Porsche to pretend something.

Price tag won't help as well.

FastestLaps  1m ago @Art0

Teslas straight line figures are borderline insane. Porsche don't have to match them. They have to just make it faster than Panamera Turbo and beat Tesla in other areas - the brand (not everyone wants to be a Tesla driver), the quality, handling, reliability, design etc.

Ask yourself how many Tesla crashes vs every other car crashes, there’s your answer.

Something's wrong with the lateral acceleration. At least if it's meant to be the maximum value. If you do 0-30 mph in 0.9 seconds, you also do 0-13.41 m/s in 0.9 seconds. So you have an acceleration of 14.9 m/s^2, which would be 1.519 g. Who calculates that stuff?

Off course you get the petrol sniffing ‘I hate electric cars’ brigade of which Jeremy Clarkson is the founder member who as a bonus also hates American cars. Any facts derived from Clarkson should be taken as a joke.


User avatar

Pogo  1y ago

Had to smile a bit/
Recently a Tesla model 3 was run at Laguna Seca and folks are crowing about how it was only .5 seconds slower then Jeremy Clarkson in a Honda NSX.
What they did not mention is that it 2 seconds slower than a Honda Civic SI and a full 5 seconds slower than a 45+ year old Mini Cooper S Mk II (that's a tiny tiny car with less than 100hp and little 12 in wheels).
So Tesla Model 3 slower than a 40 year old econobox with a 1.3 liter engine that you can by for 1/2 the price.

So why are you all fighting over which sports car is faster the a luxery EV? One is built for tracks other is built to have an amazing ride in day to day life. Maybe you try fighting over cars built for the same thing...just a thought...then again my toaster toasts toast faster then a oven so take that!

This test sucks.
Over four comparison cars, we get only get figures for the first one.
This is just meaningless.

Sport auto France: 0-60mph in ~2.8sec, 0-100mph in ~7.1sec, 0-130mph in ~13.7sec; 400m in 11s at approximately 193kph (1/4-mile in 11.1@120.3mph)

EVs are the biggest CRAP! Self-crashes, it's boooring, can not make corners, hideous looks, lazy annoying fanbase, and are overpriced! Also makes more damage to the environment to produce those lithium-ion batteries than the pollution made by petrol cars! **** EVs #PetrolForever

Does anyone have lap times for it going round a track other than MT Figur8?
I want to see how it fares against the RS 7, Panamera, M6 and E63-S on tracks, since MT didn't do a Figur8 for the RS 7.

In MotorTrend head to head video with Audi RS7 Performance, the P100D cross the line at 125 mph in 10,5 sec.
So we can approximate a 0-200 km/h in 10,5 sec. Is that enough to update this page with that value?


User avatar

BR2+  3y ago

1:Acceleration times do matter before 100

2:The Tesla wasn't made to blaze laprimes, Anybody who owns one could care less.

3: If your gonna use times use the best, CTS-V 0-60 in 3.4, 0-100 7.2, Traps at 127mph,.

4: It's faster then any 4 door car in acceleration from a dog, Even from rolls depending on starting speed, the highest trap speed of this car is 126mph.


User avatar

hostboy  3y ago

It's still slower than the Cadillac CTS-V and the Dodge Charger Hellcat. Acceleration times don't matter before 100 mph. It trapped 125mph to the CTS-V's 122, BUT... the CTS-V reached 0-100 in 8sec and this did that in 6... 6 sec to 100 mph while taking 4 more sec to reach 122, while CTS-V taking 3.8 sec to go from 100-122 in M/T.
