Seriously I don't see how it can be much faster since we are pretty much at the tire grip limit (regarding 0-60). What blows my mind is the 'base' Plaid is supposed to trap 155MPH, what the heck is the Plaid+ trapping? Or the Roadster?
Well maybe less, if it has more ground effects for traction. The extra 100 or so ponies might not overcome an extra robust diffuser or wider body panels; maybe more air flow through the front condensers or brakes?. All I can tell from the corporate pictures is both come with the carbon fibre spoiler.
You know, that is a great point I hadn't thought of. >9.00 to 9.23 is the listed quarter mile so it has to be out accelerating it at some point, but not necessarily out to trap speed. Man I can't wait to have more info on either Plaid models!
Maybe not to you, but ~35% more range could be worth it to some people. It’s possible the new 4680 cells also provide more sustained power for longer (making for longer track runs), and more sustained charging at higher rates (making for shorter stops at superchargers).
Well the people who know haven't said. There are others who estimate it is about 120 kWh.
