    All these tests were done in VIR (Virginia International Raceway), so called the Nurburgring of America. Car and Driver do testing for about 20 cars here every year to test car performance and time independently instead of relying on manufacturer's lap time claims.


    Probably not a fair test since they should have used the P90D instead. I bet the P100D will be better in terms of over-heating issue since it is a new architecture with better cooling



    For comparison: Charger Hellcat with similar weight as the Tesla


    For comparison: Lexus big heavy 4 door


    And of course, the king of all tracks. Viper ACR!
