Tesla Racing Channel’s Model S P100D Ludicrous +: 0 To 60 In 2.38 Seconds, Beats Faraday Future FF 91 – Video

2 months ago by Eric Loveday 18

Tesla Racing Channel has become the first to post a sub 2.4-second time (DragTimes record 2.465 seconds during its first 0 60 to MPH attempt) for the 0 to 60 MPH dash in the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous + mode engaged.

Tesla Model S P100D With Ludicrous + Runs 0 To 60 MPH In 2.389 Seconds

Tesla Model S P100D With Ludicrous + Runs 0 To 60 MPH In 2.389 Seconds

In fact, the record time was just 2.389 seconds on a stock Model S. That time makes the production Model S with Ludicrous + even quicker than the stripped down (no interior, hundreds of pounds lighter than a production version) Faraday Future FF 91, which ran a claimed 2.39 seconds according to Faraday.

Video description from Tesla Racing Channel:

“First Tesla P100D Ludicrous Plus with the Performance Easter Egg out at the Dragstrip.”

Going back to where Tesla Racing Channel began 2 years ago at the famous Piedmont Dragway. We even inserted some clips from our P85D when it did its first pass in insane mode running a 7.4 and a 11.6 quarter mile.”

“Fast forward two years from then and this car now is a full second faster in the quarter mile running 10.6s show room floor stock. That’s an achievement not accomplished by possibly any car company before improving their top model by a full second e.t.”

“This car even put down a 2.38 0 to 60 at the dragstrip, murdering the Faraday Future and its hype.”

2.38 seconds would be a record for a production electric car, had it been conducted in an official manner, but that’s still nothing compared to the expected 2.1-second time the Model S P100D with Ludicrous + mode could run if it was stripped of its interior and extra unnecessary items.

Bonus Ludicrous + video (plus description) from Tesla Racing Channel:

“With the wait finally over the Performance Easter Egg, Ludicrous Plus, for the Tesla P100D is here. Elon has tweeted it should run 0-60mph in 2.4 seconds! What car even compares to that?? And what we’re really excited about is the 10.6 quarter mile time. In this video we do a few tests to see if we can get the acclaimed acceleration times with the new update!”

“At the end of the video I simply wanted to address a few things such as the traction problem with these crazy cars along with the ability to improve you get into launch control. Crazy these things are now a full second faster in two years from the P85D to the P100DL +!”

“And yes I know the Roadster was the first Tesla Produced…Please excuse the error, it was locker room talk.”

    He is having to race actual race cars now since factory style cars are so slow.

      This car P100D is running of the 18650 cells like the powerpack1 (100kW). The new Powerpack2 is (210kW) in the same dimensions as the older powerpack1 but built on the new cells 2170 that the new Model 3 will have. So eventually the advanced 2170 cells will make there way into the S & X since they are also cheaper to make.. So in the future a there could be a P210D S&X with over 600 mile range on a charge or P100D with 2170 cells that take up half the current pack size and weight!! Car should be able to do 2 seconds or less 0 to 60!!

    LOL. Poor Faraday Future. Their imaginary car from an imaginary factory that will be produced in, maybe 2 years, is already slower than the current Model S.

    1. Kdawg says:

      They should race the Model X vs. the FF91 since they are more comparable in size.

      1. DJ says:

        But then it wouldn’t “murder” the FF91 by .001 seconds. LMAO

        1. floydboy says:

          Murder?

          1. DJ says:

            Maybe read the article? I dunno 🙂

            1. floydboy says:

              Oops! missed that! Yeah, I was thinking, that would be something odd for InsideEVs to say about so little a time difference!

    2. philip d says:

      And that is expected to cost twice as much.

  3. ffbj says:

    Interesting test case of lots of hot launches and how well the car is responding to it.

  4. Fred says:

    “Stock-ass tay’rz!!!” LOL X1000!!

  5. floydboy says:

    Watching the speedometer climb like that is otherworldly! The slow electric golf cart days are hereby forever banished!

  6. Nix says:

    Towards the end of the video he talks about ways to make the car even faster. I would imagine that all the ideas he had might be accomplished by aftermarket tuners, just like the aftermarket tuners boost up the GT-R’s he talked about.

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      From the viewpoint of practical considerations, yes the competition for ever lower 0-60 times is stupid and useless.

      But from an economic viewpoint, it attracts attention and helps sell cars… like it or not.

      Not saying that I like it. But that’s the reality.

    2. jamcl3 says:

      I often enjoy reading Jalopnik, although it also fits in the category of mostly useless and stupid. But it can be FUN!

      Some fun things are not useless and stupid, give me a minute and I will think of one…

  7. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

    Why is anyone serious about racing EVs even paying attention to the pointless claim from Faraday Future? It’s as if a Le Mans racing team got all hot and bothered by the land speed records set by rocket cars on the Bonneville salt flats.

    Not to denigrate those records, but those amount to just stunts. Nobody is ever gonna build a practical car, or even a track race car, that way. And FF is never gonna put a car into production.

    1. protomech says:

      I don’t think I’ve seen any commentary about FF by “anyone serious about racing EVs”. Granted, only a few people and groups seriously race stock or modified street EVs (similar to FF91) .. but there’s a reason you don’t typically see people seriously racing 5000 pound gas vehicles.
