I for one do NOT need to see this info (2018 M3P owner) 😃

Gonna be quite interesting to see how big of a gap there is between the LR and Plaid. I'm assuming/hoping it'll probably be a lot closer than people expect and will steer a bunch of people to save the $50k price premium on the Plaid. At least that's what my delusional mind is trying to come up with.

But if it doesn't have the carbon-sleeved rotors, the power curve will drop off at higher RPMs more than the Plaid and probably behave more like an old P85D. Still plenty of power, just not Plaid levels.
A recently Dragy shared 2014 (and thus 7 year old) P85DL shows a Dragy 0-60 at 3.12. (and 1/4 at 11.59 and 1/8 at 7.27) and these were at 89% SOC

TWo different recently Dragy shared 2021 LRs show a Dragy 0-60 at 3.33 and and 3.38. They don't show 1/4 or 1/8 on the Dragy leaderboard yet.

and many P85Ds were available with the plus suspension to those who don't understand the benefits of the 2014 and early 2015 P85DLs.

The only 1/4 mile info we have gives the new LR a 10.8 time at about 129 mph. Much faster than a P85D in the 1/4, slower off the line.

Yeah I found the youtube video. No one shared on the Dragy leaderboard though but the timeslip is posted on the youtube video.


Impressive 1/4 but the 60' time suggests Tesla is sandbagging the launch on the LRs. I see that someone else suggests that slipstart will help on the LRs launch.

Yeah very good chance the launch is software locked. Hopefully they will unlock more performance in the future or offer an acceleration boost option to knock the 0-60 down.
