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

    https://driveteslacanada.ca/model-s/...roduction-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.
