Elon Musk Takes His Latest Creation Down The Strip

As always this ride is brought to you Elon’s favorite personality Bloomberg’s Betty Liu.  (Who doesn’t remember when Betty convinced the Tesla boss to make an impromptu visit to an Acura dealership in Santa Monica?)

Just as a quick recap on the car :

  • 0-60 in 3.2 seconds
  • 1/4 mile  in 11.8 second
  • power:  691 hp, and 687 lb-ft of torque
  • range: 275 miles
  • cost from $120,170

All the specs, range, and debut info from Tesla’s launch event (no pun intended) in Hawthorne, CA can be found here)

Separately, Mr. Musk talked to Liu about the legal implications behind something like the auto pilot feature.

    My only question is:
    Did the P85D lose frunk space?

    NPNS! SBF!

      From what I understand, the D loses the alcove in the back of the frunk often referred to as the microwave.

    2. wraithnot says:

      ” The D definitely still has the main part of the frunk, and definitely does not have the frunk cubby/microwave section. This understanding was confirmed with multiple conversations with the engineer and sales person tending the displayed “D””

    I wonder if Betty Liu owns a Tesla.

  3. David Murray says:

    I’m surprised Elon doesn’t just take Betty Lui home with him.

      I’ll suppose that you’ve not seen photos of his wife? no slam to Ms. Liu intended..

        …must …resist.. the Utah joke…

        Musk is not married.

        Currently dating his second ex-wife.
