    Well, they could always call it the Taycan - -

    There are 90 turns on the 'ring. That means 90 times the car will go to max throttle to accelerate out of that turn in less than 8 minutes, or about once every 5 seconds.

    Sorry, the rear AC induction motor in the Raven WILL overheat under this kind of usage. It was not designed for that duty cycle. Marketing doesn't change physics. :eek:

    This picture clearly shows they enlarged the wheel covers to accomodate for the wider wheels. I believe this is the first time a performance model gets a distinguishing feature in the bodywork (if it makes it to the production model). Not talking about spoiler, brake clip colour, etc. It looks like they also enlarged the air intake for extra cooling.

    One less than the Taycan? Don't think so!

    Called "enlarged fender flares":


    The author speculates that it improves aerodynamics of the wider tires.

    BTW., I think they took a couple of design elements from the Roadster 2:

    No, that would decrement the Taycan, itself, by one and return the new value. Really, the right thing there would be “--Taycan”

    So Glovis Sunlight appears to be making a stop I the way to Zerbrudge in The UK. This could help keep UK deliveries moving. May also mean they’re short cars for Norway and Netherlands until at least next weeks ship due on the 30th.

    Didn't Tesla ditch that style label though? Switched to 'Performance' or something?

    I think this picture best shows off the larger rear fender flares, as well as providing a clear view of the enlarged lower front air intake: :p

    Its a 2017, thus the old label.

    Dissecting Tesla Model S P100D+ Plaid: World's First 7-Seat Supercar

    "Other details about the car have also appeared on Twitter. According to a CarFax report posted by Brian Gluckman (tweet embedded below), the vehicle is a 2017 example that originally came with Dual Motors.

    Amusingly, it appears to have a lemon/buyback title, which may explain how the automaker got possession of it to turn it into a development mule. There are no specific issues are mentioned on the report. As of December 31, 2018, the report says the car had accumulated 26,736 miles."

    They need to clean up the aesthetics on that air intake before they go to production.

    The average TSLA SPs in my 3 portfolios that hold it are $224, $253, and $256, but bought most on the way down.

    Like riding on a roller coaster, I get a thrill from snapping up stocks when they reach temporary highs, and hang on and scream as they go down. Then when they go up again, I snatch up some more just before the stock plunges again. I may get old, but that sinking feeling never does.

    I learned everything from my wife. When I first traded, her comment was "You're never going to make money if you sell each time it drops a little."

    I'm assuming that there will be an exterior update to go along with this drivetrain and chassis update but that Tesla doesn't want to say that or acknowledge it until it's closer to production

    Well, in the age of Trump we could call it "Double Plus Good ".

    Previously, when Tesla used + in the name was for P85+, which did not have extra motor, but better suspension to support cornering aka improved track performance.
