    So I think I'm just getting used to the performance (sadly) but sometimes I feel like there isn't much of a difference in my P85D after I got the Ludicrous upgrade a few months ago. I haven't done any track time nor do I have anything to record actual metrics so I'm sure I'm not an accurate judge.

    But then a few days ago I was having fun with a 911 Turbo (not exactly sure of the year, but definitely less than 10 years old). He out-accelerated me from 50 to 100. Is that expected? Even with Ludicrous is this expected? I did have only about a 50% charge though.

    Yes you get used to Ludicrous and then you can't tell much of a difference. That is why I go to the drags to determine exactly the difference. I got slightly more than .2 sec improvement both in the 1/8 and 1/4 mile drags.

    You need about 90% charge for best results, 50% is way too low. Yes above 50 miles per hour a fast ICE will beat the Tesla.
