Wish they would show the 0-60 time.
It seems like tire tech is limiting most of these crazy cars to around 2.5 seconds 0-60. You have to start looking at bigger numbers to start seeing the difference between all of them (zonda, Porsche. Ferrari, Bugatti, koenigsegg, McLaren, etc).

I just wanted to see if the Tesla was still the fastest to 60.

LoL... you mean you're believing musk tweets 100%? Even he said that "oh yeah it wont really do 1.9, but it'll do 2.1!" Still crazy fast, but until it's actually tested it doesnt count.
It's an announcement on YouTube and several websites. Either time would still make it the fastest to 60.

Tesla is claiming that and some sites are echoing it, doesnt mean it's real. It is not in production nor has it been tested yet. Until such a time it is not the quickest 0-60.

I find "the fastest" production car irrelevant at this point. It's just bragging rights until the next "fastest" car is developed. You can't sanely drive at these speeds unless you're a professional on a closed course, and most of these just sit in a rich-guy's garage as collector car / investment.

Really we are talking about the quickest car, not the fastest.

I don't remember the model designation but Tesla has another model that has been documented many times at 2.5 to 60. What production car is faster.

Does 0-60 matter if a car can do 400kmh?
Even if a Tesla is faster to 60mph somewhere around 150mph a 248mph car going to pull away?

Would take a Koenigsegga over a Tesla any day.

That was the Tesla S P100D in Ludicrous mode. The Porsche 918 was tested at 2.1. Theres a few tested at 2.3 and 2.4.

That's what I was saying. One or two tenths at 0-60 doesnt matter once you're talking about 0-200+. Since folks want to be pedantic I'll gladly join them.

Well, yeah, but how many MPGe does it get while seating 9, huh? Huh?!?!?

Ha! That's what I thought!!

You crazy people with your tales of going faster than 70 MPH. That'd be breaking the speed safety limits.

0-60 happens all the time in reality but I've yet to see anyone running to 200 MPH on the city streets.

I don't think this Tesla ran out of steam beating a Dodge Hellcat from a dig and from a roll.

Charger Hellcat isnt in the same 0-60 league. Compare the Tesla to something like the McLaren 720S that also does 0-60 in 2.5. Heres one... the Hellcat traps 130 in the 1/4 while the 720S does 145. Now let's see a P100D vs 720S rolling race lol. Even the Hellcat only seemed to lose due to traction issues when they hit it.
