    Yes, there's power limiting to prevent the rotor overheating.

    Model S is not a track car.

    Heat buildup in the battery pack. Eventually leads to limp mode.

    Tesla is optimized for on road use under 100 mph.

    It can also do short runs of 155 mph as real world autobahn conditions allow.

    Tesla P90DL not optimized for going on the autobahn at 4 AM with SuperCar Club.

    Yeah, i also think its not a track car. I was wondering why the tester was bashing model s just because it had some power reduction. He was kinda biased. Model S is a sporty family sedan.

    This point is literally the only nit they can pick with Model S, that's why. It kicks ass at everything else. So naturally they would blow it out of proportion to make the other car look good.
