What's faster than ludicrous speed?
Whooosh!2019-09-12 07:31:41 UTC Tesla's Model S is busy traveling the world and setting records at famous racing tracks. On Wednesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the Model S set the record for the fastest four-door car at the Laguna Seca racetrack in California, with a 1:36.555 lap. Model S just set record for fastest 4 door ever at Laguna Seca, video tmrw — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 11, 2019 And now, we can watch that lap on video. According to Musk, the Model S used for this lap has a new Plaid powertrain, which will go into mass production in about a year. It was originally supposed to be used in Tesla Roadster, but Musk now claims it will also appear on Tesla Model S and X (not Model 3 or Y, though). Yes. To be clear, Plaid powertrain is about a year away from production & applies to S,X & Roadster, but not 3 or Y. Will cost more than our current offerings, but less than competitors. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) Why"Plaid," you might wonder? Well, Tesla takes the names for its acceleration modes from the classic comedy Spaceballs ludicrous " speed is"plaid." The Laguna Seca lap is just a warm-up for the real thing.
