    Default Tesla Model S Plaid sets 1/4 mile record for production car

    The time was set on May 11, 2021 at the Autoclub Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, about four hours south of Tesla’s Fremont factory in California. According to a source who was at the event, the Midnight Silver Model S Plaid set an official time of 9.23 seconds with a trap speed of 152.16mph (244.88km/h).

    That handily beats the previous record of 9.4 seconds held by the Bugatti Chiron Sport. At a base price of $3,260,000 USD ($3,946,000 CAD), the supercar is considerably more expensive than the Model S Plaid which starts at $119,990 USD ($159,900 CAD).

    That is crazy, but we knew they were gunning for a lot of records with the Plaid. To think, the Roadster 2 is going to be even quicker.

    I really hope Tesla bring out a small, cheaper hatch as their next vehicle. If you look at how cheap the Cybertruck is compared to the competition i'd take a design like that as a hatch that you can just drive around and not care too much about.
