    Really great stories about Tesla Model S here. Very unusual for an auto magazine to say nice things about Elon or Tesla

    Well, I've been wondering what my 1,000th post to the forums would be. Looks like this is it... :)

    This is the most current Motor Trend piece on Tesla I could find, dated last month. Have you found something newer?

    Thanks. "Here" is where exactly? The latest print edition of the magazine? Or on the website?

    The most recent Tesla story on the Motor Trend website is from Feb 9, 2017 and is about the Model 3. Report: Tesla to Build Model 3 Prototypes This Month - Motor Trend

    I'm pretty sure I read it at the library this week, it was a long term wrap up of the P85D.

    May issue arrived my house March 24. Long column by editor Edward Loh, and two more pages regarding the P100Dwith the L option. How about 2.3 to 60 and 124+ mph ? Zero to 100 in 10.2 ! Also chart showing 30 of the quickest cars they have tested. All around the best I've read in any auto magazine so far.

    Pretty sure it gets to 100mph wayyyyyyyyyyyyy faster than 10.2 seconds. And top speed is 155 not 124. That sounds more like it's quarter mile trap speed.

    When did Model S top speed hit 155? I always remember it as around 130 MPH.

    Since at least the P85D. Also the P100D does 0-100 in about 6 seconds, not 10.

    Even my lowly 85D supposedly does 155, though i haven't tested it out...

    The 10.2 sec time was 0-100-0. The articles and sidebars are included in latest print edition of MT.

    Just found another mention on page 84, same edition, re: 2017 Porsche 911 turbo. Out of 10 really quick cars the Tesla was 1st followed by the featured 911. The Porsche as tested: $196,360 ! Liking my P85D more all the time.
