More Proof The Tesla Model S P100D Is Quickest Stock Sedan On The Planet

Quarter Mile

In case you needed any.

In case you needed more proof the Model S is the quickest stock sedan in the world, both DragTimes and a guy named Chris recently posted videos of a Tesla Model S P100D putting its Ludicrous + mode to the test by setting record quarter-mile runs. According to electrek, the quarter-mile runs took place within a day of each other. Ludicrous + was introduced with Tesla’s Software v8.0 release. More acceleration is achieved by sacrificing gearbox and battery longevitity. Prior to launch, it also cools the motors using the car’s a/c and heats the battery to optimal temperatures.

In the DragTimes video, the P100D went up against a modified Camaro ZL1 and BMW 550i, setting a record time of 10.723 seconds, at the Pam Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida.

That very same day, however, on the other side of the country, Chris Bergemann from Oregon set a new record time of 10.638 seconds in his Tesla Model S P100D. Described as having “no changes to anything, original interior, original wheels, original tires,” the Model S also lacks a sunroof “to save weight.”

Quarter mile times have been steadily improving with every new iteration of the Model S: 12.3 seconds (P85), 11.6 seconds (P85D), 11.2 seconds (P90D Ludicrous Mode), 10.7 seconds (P100D Ludicrous Mode) and now 10.6 seconds (P100D Ludicrous+ Mode). Whether the next-generation Tesla Roadster will beat that time with its “Maximum Plaid” acceleration mode remains to be seen.
