They just keep pushing the envelope !! 7 can you get an upgrade

10 second X would be insane !!!

Tesla's new 100kWH battery makes Ludicrous Mode even more ludicrous

With a number of new upgrades announced today, Tesla's Model S is now the third-fastest car in the world, going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds. That's only just slower than the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder — both million-dollar hypercars. The Model X goes faster too, from 0-60MPH in 2.9 seconds, down from 3.2 seconds.

The added speed is thanks to a long-rumored 100kWh battery option, available for order today in its Model S and Model X cars. The new battery, which includes an additional 10kWh of storage over the previous top-of-the-line model, will deliver 315 miles of EPA-estimated range in the Model S P100D version, up from 294 miles when equipped with the 90kWh battery, and an increase of around seven percent. The Model X P100D rates 289 miles, up from 250 miles. The battery will only be available in the performance, all-wheel-drive model with the Ludicrous Mode option.

We've been hearing chatter from our friends inside Tesla for awhile now, so it's great to hear that their finally releasing the 100D. I still think electric / alternative energy cars are the future, which should be interesting as more sports cars progress in that direction (like the next GT-R).

I read somewhere that newer delivered P90D cars were already clocking faster 0-60 times, possibly due to Tesla including the 100kwh battery without saying anything?

Probably software changes, since the 100kWh battery packs are a $20K upgrade for current P90D owners (completely new battery pack, as opposed to the packs in the 85/90kWh cars).

Yeah, it seems insane to consider a $20k upgrade but my X was already $150k, what's another $20k, lol? The additional range would be a benefit for road trips. I'll probably wait until others upgrade and until the autosteer 2.0 upgrades come out and whether my car can be retrofit.

It's cool but I would argue that there are a ton of cars for $150-170k that would make me much happier and serve the same purpose.

I would wait until the batteries degrade a bit more and the price of the upgrade goes down. then upgrade. but if you got the cash to spend then go for it.

just read about this this morning and it's pretty cool. 2.5-2.6 sec to 60 is gtr fast!

Makes me wonder what the other limits of the platform might be.  We know battery tech will keep advancing, but how close are we to hitting other issues when continuing to give it more and more juice?  At what point will the armatures overheat or the axles snap or the wiring melt or ??  Not really expecting concrete answers but surely (hopefully) there's got to be more to the future of car modding than just waiting for a better battery to be invented ;)

Tesla essentially operates under the Japanese principle of Kaizen; they're constantly making revisions to their technology and production processes. Through our Tesla-focused business Unplugged Performance, we've gotten our hands on xxxx Model S cars and when you work on them, you can see firsthand, all the miniscule changes that they're constantly coming up with to incrementally improve the cars.

I'm waiting for them to make the electric motors into the hubs. The center would be stationary and the housing would spin. Attach wheel to housing and voila - no more drivetrain parts...

As much as I dont like it, electric motors are clearly the future, I wonder if the next gen GTR will spawn a electrical tuning

its suppose to. it will likely use the electric motors in an evolution of the already super heavy DBA chassis. the rumor is that the electric motors will be used for performance rather than fuel savings, so I assume it will be used for launch control.

Does anyone else sense a missed opporunity in that they didn't call the mode "plaid"?

I'm honestly surprised that they didn't, especially given that's what they were going for with "Insane" and "Ludicrous" modes.
