Congrats Tesla! Who else can break 1:30 with a roomy four door family sedan that gets 100 MPGe? Most cars that can do that (and there's precious few) are lucky to get 15 MPG.

Maybe the Porsche Taycan? Ooops, not roomy, not a family sedan and way too slow!

 

User avatar

Cocobe  3d ago

A Taycan too slow? You need to be on your meds man. The thing is no Tesla handles anywhere as well as a Taycan and no Tesla is as well put together as a Taycan. The Tesla is great for range and acceleration but it’s not a car for those who like driving or any luxury experience

The only modifications made to the Model S Plaid that achieved 1:30.3 was that they installed a bucket seat in the driver's position, and used Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires. These are fairly small modifications that are pretty standard fare for anyone taking their vehicle to the track. They did not "remove the seats" and every other car in it's league is also using light bucket seats. Also, these are not "full slick" tires, these are tires you could reasonably use on the street (albeit, you'd probably want to make sure it's a dry, summer day, but still).

This makes the Model S Plaid faster than the McLaren P1, the 488, the 911 Turbo S, the 911 GT3 RS, the AMG GT R, and the Corvette C7 Z06. It absolutely embarrasses every BMW.

There are only two production cars in existence that beat the Model S Plaid on the Laguna Seca without also costing at least twice as much : the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and the Dodge Viper ACR Mk V. Neither of those cars have 4 doors and 4 seats with loads of interior room. Neither of those cars have 62 cubic feet of internal storage with the back seats folded. Neither of those cars have instant torque or regenerative braking. Neither of those cars are going to be extremely comfortable daily driver experiences for even the least skilled of drivers, with safety conveniences like lane-keep assist, electronic collision detection, or cruise control. Neither of those cars are going to get OTA software updates that will further improve their performance and convenience. And there are absolutely zero cars from other manufacturers on this list, or any other list, that have an infotainment experience that is even remotely comparable with any Tesla.

I wouldn't even consider myself part of the Tesla cult. The cars obviously have their flaws : severely overpriced FSD package that borders on "this is a borderline illegal scam", mediocre paint quality not worthy of a car of that cost, horrendously unacceptable QA control, spotty and inconsistent service accessibility outside of California, interior build quality that lacks in comparison with similarly priced luxury vehicles, and good luck getting the advertised range in the dead of winter. And, fun-wise, these are heavy cars. The Model S Plaid is heavier than a Ford-F150, and that reflects in it's driving experience, both in terms of it's suspension and it's lateral Gs. Don't get me wrong, the Model S is surprisingly tight given how heavy it is, but it's certainly no Miata or Porsche. Honestly, if I could have any car on this list, I'd take the 911 GT2 RS.

But based on your willingness to just straight up lie about the Model S Plaid, it's very clear you are part of the Tesla hate cult. Why? Why are you so irrationally passionate about vehicles I know for a fact you will literally never be rich enough to own? Why are you sitting here lying to make gas-powered hypercars seem better than a Tesla when I know for a fact you probably drive a beat-up 10 year old Ford Fiesta?

Tesla used Cup2R tyres not Cup2 so there you have an additional 1.5-2 sec improvement.

Are you implying that the other cars on that list are not using track-optimized tires just like the Model S Plaid?

It hasnt made it into production until now. Elon Musk canceled the Tesla Model S Plaid + because they were unable to produce the batteries. The Tesla Roadster was supposed to have these batteries too.

scidood  6d ago @Braziliancopeguy

The Dodge Viper ACR Mk V was essentially same price as the Model S Plaid is, not twice as much like you stated.


User avatar

Cocobe  5d ago @scidood

he said that it DIDN'T cost twice as much.

Actually the GT2RS does cost twice as much.

FastestLaps  4m ago

This is price vs Laguna Seca performance plot created by @ilias.

As you can see, there is almost pure nonlinear function in how price explodes higher as you squeeze out last seconds from the Laguna Seca lap time.

Good example of "diminishing returns" law, which we see almost in any kind of product or service - the most specialist, most well made or very best performing product will sometimes cost multiples more than nearest rival, even if value difference is negligable.

For cars there are other strong factors that affect price - for example, Porsche 911 GT2 RS has very high collector appeal and you have to pay huge exclusivity premium on top of what you would expect to pay for the high performance.

Given enough market liquidity, there really is no such thing as "overpriced car". Prices are function of demand and availability.

The list also lists unknown for the driver for number 27 on the list. Please see the video for Randy Pobst's lap time for the Camaro ZL1 1LE at the Laguna Seca track at 1:34.30.

 


User avatar

jessenguyen  2y ago

The list says unknown for the driver for number 28 on the list. Randy Pobst ran a 2012 Corvette C6 Z06 with Z07 package ran the Laguna Seca track at 1:34.43. You can tell it is a Z06 with a Z07 package because of the aero and also because the Centinnial editions were all equipped with Z07 packages

So here we have the Tesla Model S Plaid powertrain and chassis prototype lapping Laguna Seca in 1:36.55 which i assume is the same car they're using at the Nurburgring? The plot thickens lol
