Leave it to the fine folks over at DragTimes to not only get the chance to drive the very first delivery of the P100DL Model S, but also publish some highly documented test results.

The results...impressive. That's for sure!

DragTimes states:

"While we impatiently wait for our Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous to arrive from Tesla, we had the awesome opportunity to test out what is mostly likely the first P100D to be delivered. A Tesla enthusiast family with 5 Tesla’s took delivery of their P100D in Palm Beach Florida and headed right over for us to take a look as well as do the first set of real world performance tests."

Lucky...

In terms of power, DragTimes found that the P100D put out "567 kW which converts to an astounding 760 HP." DragTimes adds:

"Previous test data on the latest P90D Ludicrous refresh hit 500-512 kW, so this puts the P100D with around a 70-90HP peak gain over it’s predecessor."

Configuration matters when you're conducting speed/performance tests, so DragTimes notes the following:

"This P100D was configured with the standard 19″ wheels with all season 245/45/19″ tires and no panoramic roof. Other options included autopilot, premium upgrades package and ultra high fidelity sound."

With a full charge, DragTimes says the car showed 317 miles of range and testing was set to begin.

The results:

  • 0-60 MPH  in 2.54 seconds
  • 0-100 MPH in 6.5 seconds
  • 1/4 mile time of 10.7 @ 124.5 MPH.
