If the time is legit, it would be the quickest production car in the world.
We know the Tesla Model S is quick, even when not pounding the pavement in Ludicrous mode. The upgraded Model S Plaid is even quicker, with Tesla claiming it can reach 60 mph in under two seconds. Those claims are as yet unproven since Plaid models still haven’t reached customers, but at least one source claims to have inside info on quarter-mile performance. If the info is true, The Model S Plaid will be the world’s quickest production car.
The source is Drive Tesla Canada, but before we go further, know that we’ve been unable to verify any of the claims made in the report. That’s noteworthy because Drive Tesla Canada is citing an anonymous source, so there’s plenty of he-said-she-said happening here. Still, we know the Model S Plaid will be exceedingly quick with over 1,000 horsepower driving all four wheels, so it’s not as if this claim is as far-reaching as Elon Musk’s Roadster, which is currently orbiting the sun between Earth and Mars.
