The crew of Drag Times recently took their brand new Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode out and did some 0 to 60 runs on wet roads. The results were amazing.
In a drag race between a Tesla Model X P90D with Ludicrous Mode and a McLaren 650S, which will win? The result may surprise you.
Elon Musk was asked on Twitter yesterday if the Model 3 will have Ludicrous Mode. “Of course,” was his reply.
Originally published on EV Obsession. Owners of the Tesla Model S P85D who want to upgrade their ride to have “Ludicrous Mode” enabled are now able to place preorders for the process, according to recent reports. As it stands, these preorders are currently running at $7,500 a pop — with the hardware upgrade cost being set at […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. Note: This article has been updated a few times since publishing in order to add more images on the bottom. We’re all crazy about Tesla Model X spy shots (see here, here, and here) as we wait for the big unveiling. However, Elon Musk previously stated that the design studio for […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. The first Ludicrous Tesla Model S P90D reaction video we found on the interwebs was not of a great quality. I never would have shared it if it weren’t “the first.” This second reaction video is slightly better. Have a watch/listen: Testing Ludicrous mode, cant keep a cellphone straight 😉 A […]
People who can tell the difference between a car that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and one that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds are possibly a very special breed. Aside from the tiny difference of 0.3 seconds, when you’re accelerating that fast, your senses and awareness get utterly warped. So, my […]
We’ve been waiting, waiting, waiting… and looks like we won’t have to wait much longer. An Illinois resident noted yesterday that his Tesla Model S P90D (with the Ludicrous option… of course) is now “in transit.” Of course, others on the Tesla Motors Club forum (where he announced it) quickly requested that he record some acceleration and […]
Originally published on Kompulsa. A user in the Tesla Motors Club forum recently started a poll asking members if they would upgrade from “Insane” mode, which enables them to accelerate from 0–60 MPH in 3.1 or 3.2 seconds, to “Ludicrous” mode, which reduces that time to an impressive 2.8 seconds. The upgrade costs $5,000 + labour for […]
As I wrote the other day, the “Ludicrous” Tesla Model S is by some standards the quickest production car in history. But if you are going to count some of those cars as “production cars” and strictly take their 0–60 mph times into account (not their 0–30 mph times or their straight acceleration off the […]
Edit: You can now add the Caterham 7 620 R, Bugatti Veyron Supersport, and Nissan GT-R NISMOto the list, thanks to the new Model S P100D option. The text below has been modified accordingly. Elon Musk announced yesterday that an upgrade to the Tesla Model S can give it a “Ludicrous” option that propels the electric sedan […]
Elon Musk has tweeted that the new Tesla Roadster will have an optional performance upgrade that will make it even quicker than the base model. He also hinted something about flying cars and rockets. What is Musk up to now?
Scheduled for production in 2020, the second generation Tesla Roadster will be the quickest production car ever made. It will start at $200,000.
Automotive artists look ahead to a Tesla LMP1 All-electric Race Car Concept to challenge for LeMans glory by the year 2030.
Unplugged Performance has unveiled three new body kits — from mild to wild — for the Tesla Model 3.
When I wrote The Car List, I ranked Tesla at number 16 of 25. The first question I got was predictable: Why is Tesla Ranked So Low?
