    My first two runs. Oddly enough I had identical times on both runs, 12.562. Thanks to Park2670 for recording them!

    Tesla Model S 1/4 Mile Drag - YouTube


    Tesla Model S P85+ VS BMW X5M - YouTube


    1st run car #978 12.562 at 109.07mph - traction control on
    2nd run car #917E 12.562 at 109.39mph - traction control off
    3rd run car #917E 12.615 at 109.68mph - traction control off
    4th run car #917E 15.414 at 106.26mph - traction control off, tires spun first 100' or so. I backed off slowly and they wouldn't grab until I hit full regen. Pretty sure the track treatment was completely worn off at this point.

    What a great time! I am glad that I was able to witness this car.

    So many people in the stands saying "what was THAT?!"

    I'm not following you here: "...they wouldn't grab until I hit full regen"??? Did you really have to lift all the way off the go pedal before wheel spin stopped?

    Correct, had to completely lift off the accelerator. Slowly was probably an exaggeration, I "backed off" for maybe a second before completely lifting my foot.

    V8 with a twin turbo and all wheel drive. Something like 550 horse and 500lb ft torque.

    Thought it was something like that. Makes its destruction at your hands all the sweeter. :cool:

    Nice work.

    I never thought that I would buy an electric car that was almost as fast as my CTS-V (lots of mods and 540 RWHP).

    I can't wait to get my P85 in Dec and take it to the strip in the spring.

    Somebody is going to come up with a 1/4 mile hack for these cars and run 11's.

    I might get some 17's and throw on some drag radials and see what kind of 60' ft times I can get.

    I was able to get 1.80's on my supercharged 96' Impala SS which is a way slower car.

    I wonder if the rear end of the S will hold up to sticky tires?

    Has anyone run 11's in a Tesla yet?

    I think it can handle sticky tires. I haven't measured yet to see what size wheel can fit over the brakes. The best I've seen anyone run is 12.3 so far.

    Very sweet! Assuming those were stock, I'd say 11s are definitely reachable.

    Totally stock. They did allow a small amount of rollout thought.

    When are people going to start drag racing the cars we really want to see?


    How about a P85 vs. a 60 or regular 85 and vs the Roadster


    and how about against a Bugatti

    For me:

    Roadster (non-Sport)
    1/4 mile trap 12.66 sec
    1/2 mile top speed 176 kph

    Model S P85
    1/4 mile trap 12.17 sec
    1/2 mile top speed 203 kph

    The Model S P85 is faster across the board. It's possible the Roadster might win in the 1/8th mile, especially a Sport. I don't think a Roadster Sport would win in the 1/4 mile; it's fast out of the gate but runs out of poop at higher speeds.

    Goes to show just how impressive the P85 is.

    How about a Lamborghini Aventador?
    1/4 mile trap 10.39 sec
    1/2 mile top speed 258 kph

    But hey, that's a $500,000+ car.
