You like instant torque? The Tesla Model S P85D has got instant torque, some 864 lb-ft of it, which means that launched the electric sedan literally shoves you back into the seat unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. This compilation of passenger reactions comes in both clean and explicit versions, because sometimes the only way to express yourself is with cussing.
The founder of DragTimes hasn’t been shying about putting his collection of fast cars up on the Internet, and his Tesla P85D is the latest toy with which he can scare unsuspecting passengers. Tesla used to do a test with prospective Roadster buyers where they’d ask them to turn on the radio, and then stomp the accelerator to shove people back into their seat.
In this case, the driver doesn’t really give his passengers any chance to prepare for Insane Mode, which essentially launches the P85D from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.2 seconds. The most acceleration the average person has experienced is merging onto the highway with their Toyota Camry, and it’s obvious most of the driver’s victims simply aren’t used to this kind of speed.
While some people may have been disappointed in the Tesla P85D for not being the Model X so many thousands of people are waiting for, it’s proven to be a great marketing point to get enthusiasts tuned into the electric automaker. Even the stodgiest conventional car lover would have to admit that the Tesla P85D looks like an insane amount of fun.
