Well, that didn't take too long. Wired has got its hands on a Tesla Model S P90D and has put out a first report and drive video.
Is travelling from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds really that much better (or even different) then in 3.1 seconds? Is Ludicrous mode better than Insane?
That is the question that most of us without a McLaren 650S in the driveway, or waiting on a P90D order, have been asking.
It was no different for the folks from Wired:
"The sad thing is," I say to my passenger while slowing down in the newest Tesla Model S, “this is becoming less fun as I get used to it."
I stomp on the accelerator again. The car rockets to more than 60 mph in three seconds. I grin involuntarily, again.
"I take that back."
Much like the Consumers Report recent scoring of 103 out of 100 with the P85D, Wired gives the P90D a slightly less technical "best electric car ever made".
Check out the full and comprehensive written review from Wired here (and yes, they are still looking for the cupholders).
Hat tip to offib!
