    As long as we're having fun making stuff up, whiling away the hours/days/weeks/months until we get actual Model X information, this link showed up in the Off Topic forum.

    See slide 9 and the Model X skateboard graphic:

    Just like the Model X skateboard graphic on the Tesla Motors website, but with the 5 in 0-60 crossed out, and a 4 written in.

    Ah. Sorry, looking at it on my iPhone. Impressive! I wonder if this is something they are saying could be possible with their technology not just what Tesla is going to do this year. Good find.

    I actually thought it was going to be in the 3.6 range with the 4 wheel drive model, the torque of two motors pulling, should be a fun ride.

    They may be using the wrong picture for the skateboard because they reference the Model S P85's 0-60 time later in the pdf as 3.9 seconds. No mention of the X.

    The 3.9 sec 0 to 60 time is the time that was tested by Motor Trend and the slide is referring to the model S P85 currently in production - not the model X

    To be clear, though slide 9 DOES have a picture of a Model S on it, the skateboard is clearly the Model X skateboard (both a rear and front motor in the picture). Of course, the person assembling the slide might have grabbed the wrong picture, and they could be referring to the 3.9s 0-60 time tested by Motor Trend.

    But heck, as long as we're having fun making stuff up while we're waiting for real information from Tesla about the Model X, this is a meatier scrap than average.


    Then again, there was at least 1 point in time where Tesla was claiming on the Model X page, that the second motor would enabled AT LEAST 50% more torque. 50% more torque on a 20% heavier vehicle - I figure the 0-60 time is coming down, not going up.

    Somewhere in the official TESLA model X specs released onto the net there was a number given of 4.4 seconds for its 0 to 60 time. That was a while ago and probably did not consider a high performance version of the X. It is reasonable to expect an even lower time if a performance version is released. I cannot recall the location of the information, but I'm pretty sure that I saw it.

    Incorrect.

    Correcting...
    Some are making the leap that a dual-motor skateboard implies it's a Model X skateboard. I think it's premature to make that leap.

    Picture above shows the graphic in question.

    Video below gives the performance specs.

    The zero to sixty acceleration time is given in this YouTube video, the pertinent information starts @7m12secs.
    This link should automatically start at the correct time; Tesla Model X SUV - YouTube

    True enough - the only dual motor skateboard/vehicle Tesla has announced is Model X, which will (at least initially), be exclusively AWD. As I also commented when I started the thread, when you're making stuff up while waiting for actual info, it's a slightly thicker thread to hang on by than normally available. It's still making stuff up until actual info is here.

    Oh how I want actual information, and not pictures in presentations by third parties on unrelated topics.
