Yes but slower than a 1970s datsun with forklift motors

And it set a production car record around the Nurburgring track.

It’s fast but if you just do a 2 seater electric moderately right you can go faster and everyone could afford it.
2.5 seconds is just not hard to do with electric drive.

Ya well how about 124 in just over 7 seconds? This is a crazy a** car. I for one am impressed. Wow!

That’s a bit harder to do but then again, can you ever use that.

Dan, you are greatly underestimating the engineering that goes into an extremely fast EV. 2.5 secs is very hard to do with electrics. Yes, White Zombie, Assault&Battery and a very small handful of other fast EVs have better 0-60 times, but ask John Wayland or John Metric how hard it was to get there. An OEM could make a more affordable electric super car with all the requisite modern features, but it would still not be something that “everyone could afford”. I could totally see Lexus taking their LFA super car and going 100% electric with 200 mile range, but it would still be a $500k car–a relative steal compared to the Porsche.

I am not impressed. This is not a car, this is a weapon. This goes in the direction of more energy waste without a reason. Supporting someone’s ego.
