^ Yeah I'm one of those nerds circa 200x that was like, "CARS ARE JUST FACE GOODS, ID RATHER HAVE EXPERIENCES". Then proceeded to jack off over a car that "DOESNT NEED OIL CHANGES, SO MUCH CHEAPER" that costs $120k.

^^ Fine sir. I was not an automotive enthusiast or petrol head. Allured by the suave marketing of Tony Stark incarnate: you can have the ultimate car and not have to take it to the oil change like those other cucks. I dreamt of the day I could have my car take me to the bar where I could smugly get drunk and tell everyone my car is driving me home. Finally, being intelligent and not a sucker, I shelled out $120k so I could save $2k on gas and $300 on oil changes.


I'm making fun of myself for spending $120k on a car and also buying in hard to Elon marketing. Carry on.

I am sure y'all have heard of this by now:

"Elon Musk: Yes [0-60 mph in 1.1 sec], with the SpaceX rocket thruster option package. It will be safe, but very intense. Probably not wise for those with a medical condition – same as a hardcore roller coaster."

Anything beyond Plaid is just dumb anyway.

Bunch of short embedded videos here of various internet randos of their rides at the Tesla Model S Plaid debut event from earlier today/yesterday:

Not excited about 4700+ lbs vehicles capable of 100mph in 5 seconds on the streets.

the performance difference isn't why people wanted the plaid+, it was the 520 mile range. which I bet came from the cobalt battery which probably doesn't work as expected

I don't see anything mentioned about the repeatability of the crazy launch. I ask because with the previous top Model S Ludicrous Mode took 45 minutes of prep time, and wasn't repeatable.

Don't get me wrong, insane performance stats. But being able to hit 60 in 3 seconds as many times in a row as you want would be more impressive. Or being able to do one lap around a race track without going into reduced power mode.

Also if my statement above is outdated anyone feel free to mention as much.

^ they have seriously improved on that since they introduced the Cheetah stance feature (or around that time), i don't know, about a year ago. since then it has been able to do back to back runs, and this new one is even better.

from their website:

Quote :
"With the longest range and quickest acceleration of any electric vehicle in production, Model S Plaid is the highest performing sedan ever built. Both Long Range and Plaid powertrains, with updated battery architecture, are capable of back-to-back, consistent 1/4 mile runs."

Engineering Analysis Of New Tesla Model S Plaid Supercar

60-120 mph in 3.84 sec

as a point of reference: the $400k 765LT takes 4.1 sec

video: https://insideevs.com/news/516406/tesla-plaid-60-120-4seconds

(not surprising considering it has 1,020 hp and AWD, but still hard to wrap mind around the fact that it is a 5-seat family car, but has performance typically found in $1-3 million hypercars)
