    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the tested 0-60 time of the Porsche 918 was 2.5 seconds?
    With the firmware upgrade, the P100D will be able to lower its tested time from 2.5 to 2.4 seconds

    List of fastest production cars by acceleration - Wikipedia
    "Ind. Time" = "This is the fastest result tested by independent reliable sources"

    Porsche 918 Spyder | Ind. time: 2.2 sec

    Both footnotes point to caranddriver.com.

    Ahh, ok. Wikipedia is typically not my first port of call for facts, but the footnote paper trail suggests 2.2 seconds

    Anyway, I am very confident the 2019 Roadster will be the quickest ever

    I'd take that 2.2 with a grain of salt. I'd take motor trend times with a grain of salt also,with their bullshit rollouts and estimated times. There really needs to be an accepted standard, no roll out, standing start, no estimations, averages or approximations, and a perfectly flat strip to test the cars.

    Lol. That same BS applies to Tesla numbers. When I bough mine they were comparing numbers with and without rollout to make P85D look better. The advertised hp was even more BS (feel free to search this forum for 691hp).

    Are the TSLA hp ratings now more accurate?

    Yeah but when you read the MotorTrend and Car and Driver process, half the time the cars never achieve the published times, they are the result of calculations. They publish the fastest times to sell magazines.

    Yes, the peak reported from a P100D is 760Hp.
