The Upcoming Tesla Model S Plaid Is A Maniac Sedan With 1,080hp and More Torque

(By Tom Lohnes) – Do you want the quickest current production car with the most boring name on a current production car? Well, Tesla has you covered with the Model S Plaid.

With a claimed range of 520 miles, a 1.8-second 0-60 time, and a 200-mph top speed, this widebody Model S not only looks awesome, but backs it up with the numbers needed. Hopefully that 1.8 is true, because a dealer clocked that exact same time in a Porsche Taycan Turbo S not too long ago. The ultra-wide, ultra-aggressive body kit on this thing solves the Model S’ typically bland looks and it keeps it looking fresh for a seven-year-old car.

With three motors, two batteries, and a two-speed gearbox, this car has a claimed 1,080-wheel horsepower and 1,250 lb.-ft of torque which is absolutely bonkers for a 4-door sedan. I am typically not a fan of electric cars, especially Teslas, but this one changes that. Yeah sure, the Model 3 is probably the most boring car on the road, and the model Y is a modern-day Pontiac Aztek, but the S Plaid is awesome, and nothing can change that.

One thing that might change that for some people though, is it’s price tag. The Plaid is rumored to start at $138,000, and that is a lot of money. But, considering the Similarly performing Porsche Taycan Turbo S is $205,000, this thing is a steal

        Considering this is the same guy who actually went through with merchandising “Boring Company – The Flamethrower!”, I’d expect no less.

    Or you could save a whole bunch of money @ time of purchase and just buy a Charger Hellcat Redeye Widebody. Only a little slower 0-60, same 200mph+ capability and it won’t sound like a toy.

    Since I’m still waiting for the release of the roadster due for 2020 , or I should say overdue . I will take the announcement of the s Plaid with little serious .

    I’m still waiting for the electric vehicle capable of a 240 mile round trip with heat/defrost blowing when the outside temp is 10 degrees Fahrenheit or less.

    So far no manufacturer ever talks about winter capability because electric cars have none.
