    This is intriguing if true. Is there any data of wheel size or pano roof impact on acceleration?

    Pana adds about 150lbs and 21s add weight too. Its all about dead weight that kills the low end but, not sure if it is that much difference. As the white car may have had more charge.

    There are way too many variables to draw a real conclusion from that. Do the drivers weigh the exact same amount? What was the battery charge level of each car? How about battery temperature? What was the tire pressures of all 8 tires?

    Pano weighs more. 21" wheels weigh more. My car is light ;-)

    150lbs would add a little less than a tenth of a second to a 0-60 run, purely based on physics. I rather doubt the Pano roof weighs that much though.
