Elon says that 0-60 in 1.9 is the “base performance” model. Jesus.
Elon Musk on Twitter
Yeah, I noticed that nobody used the phrase "maximum plaid", only just "plaid". Leaves room for improvements.
Elon said this at the reveal. A model/option to go above base will be coming, more info “maybe next year”.
Base = $200k
Founders = $250k
Historically founders = all options, so I’m guessing the option will cost about $50k.
Well the AMS alpha omega GT-R does 0-60 in 1.53 seconds
0-100 in 2.79
Of course that’s not a production car, but still.
I don’t think there is much to improve in regards to 0-60, with street legal tires. Maybe some 0-100mph improvement? Or top speed?
Maybe 0-100 in under 4s. That would be possible, with enough power.
I'm betting 1.5 to 60. The driver mentioned they were hitting less than 1.9
At some point more power doesn't produce quicker 0-60 times, so w/o rollout 1.9s is already borderline unbelievable. 1.5 is really impossible, with regular street tires, that is. But actually I think the 0-100mph time is even more impressive. And the quarter mile time. And the really high top speed.
0-60 is only an achievement based on traction control, which they already know how to do and ultimately the tire manufacturer. But achieving those quarter mile times while also having an insane top speed is truly incredible in an EV.
It would be interesting to know, if they had a two gear setup in there. But this thing has crazy power, that's for sure. 1000 hp, or more.
I look forward to everyone who picks up one of these new roadsters being able to live Dom's life - 1/4 mile at a time:
