    In another battle for the ages, Tesla is putting its Model S P90-D up against a replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future.

    Tesla DeLorean in this new VR experience - GeekWire

    The race video will be released next Wednesday, the 21st, in a virtual reality experience that allows viewers to get a “first-person look from the cockpit at a race between the DeLorean and a Tesla Model S P90-D,” according to FC.
    Which car wins?
    “The Tesla can beat the DeLorean by speed, but of course, the DeLorean can time travel,” Positron’s founder/CEO Jeffrey Travis told FC.

    The real Delorean only has 130 hp... so, like, no real contest except for the time-travel part.:rolleyes:

    With time travel, it can take 100 years to develop and still be soon :)

    If we believe Quantum Mechanics, then a Model S IS a DeLorean and a DeLorean IS a Model S.

    You only need one time traveller's convention.

    We had one in 2005! Nobody showed up (time travellers that is).

    The Time Traveler Convention - May 7, 2005

    I even had my Delorean there. It was a blast. The speakers were nothing short of amazing.

    That explains a lot. But I guess they're still using Time Travel Planner 6.2.

    That's thinking outside the box (which may or may not contain a live cat!).

    Actually, the cat is there and not there at the same time. (Don't look.)

    Actually he said it would be rolled out over the next several months. The early versions will only be able to go forward in time but future options will be available as a firmware update.
