    Just for fun, Elon authorized a Skunkworks project to explore a supercar concept based on the Model 3.

    A small team in Palo Alto put together a motor-per-wheel chassis with a pair of modified high-output controllers and TWO 60 kW battery packs.

    Much of the interior was stripped out to save weight and extensive modifications to the suspension and traction control were made.

    The result of the first 0-60 run was 1.93 seconds!

    Unfortunately, during the second run, the driver blacked out from the high jerk and g forces. The car was badly damaged. But fortunately, the driver suffered only minor injuries.

    After the accident, Elon stated that no Tesla shall be capable of accelerating to 60 mph in under 2.2 seconds without self-driving safety features. And wished everyone a Happy April Fools’ Day.
