Popular Science Oct 2017 forgets Tesla comparing Dodge Demon SRT

So the mail comes and the latest edition arrived yesterday at home. Check out "Drag King" "Gone in 2.3 Seconds" pg 32

For Pete's sake, they bothered to list a 1974 Dodge Challenger and a 2017 Ford Transit Van. Locked up transmission, 12.6 " super soft tires, 840 HO, 1.8G acceleration, and let's not forget 100+ Octane smoke.

Well I've got a lowly X 90D but I'm pretty sure it is way faster than the lower 2 cars charted; and certainly an S P100D should rival the top two at 2.3 and 3.2 seconds. If you are going to pay $85,000 for a Dodge, heck pick up a PO S P90D and save your tires and the environment. I realize 98% of us did not buy our Tesla to drag race but you are are not going to take a Demon on a road trip or drive it to work.
