P85D "Warp Mode" Speculation

    Here's my speculation about the (hopefully) forthcoming "Warp Mode" for the P85D.

    • Uses coolant loop to pre-cool the motor, inverter, and battery
    • Allows the temperatures to get a few degrees higher for a few extra seconds
    • Goes into severe power limiting after the equivalent of a 1/4 mile run (enough to maintain about 80mph) while things cool back down

    Pure speculation/wishful thinking.

    Of course, ICE fans will use a limitation like this a fodder against electric cars so maybe it's not the best solution.

    I was hoping Warp Mode was the next setting faster then Insane Mode..... :)

    I do agree though that the Model S does need some kind of racing cooling button/option.
