And Just Like That: Tesla Model S P100D 1/4 Mile Record Broken With 10.638 Second Run

MAR 20 2017 BY JAY COLE 10

How long did the most recent 1/4 mile record for the Tesla Model S P100D last?

Maybe a day.

The new number to beat…and we are quite sure there is someone out there trying to do just that!

Earlier today we reported that DragTimes put up a new best 1/4 mile time for the Model S at the drag strip yesterday with a time of 10.723

…and we hope they enjoyed the fame, because today Chris Bergemann (aka YT/HPF Chris) just put down a new world record time of 10.638.

Says Chris on the run:

“A completely stock one month old 2017 Tesla Model S P100D with no changes to anything, original interior, original wheels, original tires just ran a 10.638 second pass, backed up with a 10.656 pass and a 10.669 pass.”

How long will this time hold up?  We got a feeling not too long at all.

Go Tesla. 🙂

I don’t know that’s about the limit of what it can do,imho. Significant in that it’s 1/10 of a second faster.

now if they can just find a 65 pound driver…

It will be interesting to see what it can do at 5,000 ft above sea level (Bandimere in Denver or similar). Lower air density and batteries don’t care about altitude. Altitude correction for an ICE car is a second or more, so electric cars should rule at altitude.

My first thought(s), too.

Less air resistance at higher altitudes may help an EV run even faster.

Of course this one is faster in the 1/4 mile…check the paint. It also has more AER.

(If you don’t know what I am talking about, go check the image of every EV in the sale scorecard.)

This trap speed is significantly highs than previous one tested

It seems that Motor Trend’s numbers are possible after all.

Run them on Sunday, sell them on Monday.
